Hi Guys,

I had the 3 out today for a good spin.

It was the first time I had opened her up on my local track.

The 2 speed clutch bell (TO236) bearing started to work loose causing the 43T & 47T gears to touch. There's normally a gap between them.

Has anybody else experienced this?

I'm going to try thread lock or a small tap with a center punch on the outer clutch bearing housing to try & stop it from moving.

Overall the car handles extremly well. I was trying different combos of rubber tyres which worked quite well on a COLD Irish morning.


All the best
Thanks shortyboy for your reply.

I've had a closer look. There's a gap between the gears which is caused by the one-way bearing in TO235.

When I run the 3 hard this one-way bearing seems to push the bearing in TO236 back which causes the gap to close to nothing.

The bearing in TO236 seems very tight but it still moves.

Just check & see do you still have this gap?

All the best

I found thet it will bind if your side pully is tight against the lh bulk head...


I have a little bit of lateral movement in my 2speed shaft, and its nolonger a problem

Well, you're lucky... Anyway, the 2690 pipe is suppose to be awesome. I thought Smeltz is no more modding engines for the moment?

I would lose that fuel tubing on the THROTTLE/CARB side of the linkage if I were you. The fuel tubing will not "give" enough when you apply full brake thus straining the servo. A strong servo will also bend the chassis a little because it's pushing against the carb. It's a surefire way to kill a perfectly good servo. Just use the spring that came with the kit.

Very nice car BTW!

Uhm.... some issues:

- The pressure line is way too long. You cannot get reliable carb adjustments with this long line. You need to cut it quite.
- Throttle/Brake linkage. You've substituted the springs and are needed (well, maybe you can burn the servo). Need two springs. One that comes from the servo on the throttle link and other (optional) that goes on the brake linkage to promote separation of the brake pads.

If you find that the brakes aren't working good, you can put a piece of tube on the part that pulls the brake lever, sometimes can be quite tough, soften it making some cuts to the tube and remove little parts - you can have a spring made of fuel tubing (see pic).

BTW: Don't be fooled by the stock appearing of the engine... It started as a stock RB, but this weekend should haul some asses

freakah i never thought about the possiblity of bending chassis before

i may have to switch that

i am using hitec servos and shouldnt stress them any extra

i put the tube on the neg side of brake right before i took the pictures because sometimes the brakes were not disengaging it has a stop the other way so they dont drag anymore

jason - aren't those the old Mugen Fast tires? I thought you couldn't run anything but offset tires on this car?! Nice car BTW. I'm thinking about picking one up (MTX-3 that is). How would you compare it to the GT-4. I have one of those too.

It looks like it can't be much more than 6 inches long. Why is that too long?

to fit the wheels i use the spacers made by mugen for mtx-2 they are about 1mm thick and go behind the pin for the hex

the universals i got from justrc seem to be the perfect length for the lock nut

the pressure hose is 8 inches long ive heard this is a good amount

i think mtx-3 is the best touring car out there i would recommend it over gt-4
