You can also do this:

-Increase the clutch gap
-Increase the clutch preload
-Try other pipes (Like the skyline for that bottom end)
-Get small pinions.

I really dont think the pipe could have changed anything after a bit of use ,

check over your 2speed shoes and lube the 1 way bearing with the red serpent stuff and check your clutch

Anybody have experience with 23t front side pulley ( instead of original 24t ) ??

I want to minimize rear tyres' wear rate. I'm still using stock pulley setup with 3mm split. I feel the car is becoming harder to drive especially almost the end of race. Would 23t pulley help ?

I cannot use 16/19 coversation..... no short belts in my LHS.

I really appreciate your inputs for 23t pulley ... thanks .

Then shop around to get the servos with the most speed and torque you can get with the money you have. Whatever you'll decide on buying, it will work.
Another option to get very good servos for less money is to buy used ones.

Have fun shopping and yes those will work.

My MTX3 came with a 23t front pulley. I liked the car better using that pulley than the 16/19 converison.

Thanks Scott..... I try 23t ( unused items from mtx4 )..... hopefully it reduces excessive rear tyre wear. That's all I need for the last 5 minutes in final.

btw.... one more question : with stock pulley setup 24/19, which tyre is more dominant driving the car ? is it rear tyre spin faster than front ?

As you go smaller on the front pulley, that will have the effect of making the front tires spin faster and faster when compared to the rear tires. This will have the effect of more steering when under power. The other advantage is that you can run bigger tires in the rear to make up for the extra front overdrive.
