Jason, would you happen to have a part number for the spacers? I've heard they work well. Did you have to alter the track width because I've heard the offset is 2mm short on each side.

Kenji's car got into it with another car at the begging of the race and was forced to the back of the pack then he traction rolled and dented his pipe he was off the track four to five laps this allowed Barry to take over who in turn crashed and was off four laps which allowed Ralph to take over the lead who intern had to pull off momentarily when they all got back on the track they were all on the same lap with Kenji in the lead, Barry close second, and Ralph hanging in there, do to the lack of horse power from a crush pipe on Kenji's car from the previous accident he did all he could do to hold off Barry by driving a tight line, both driver came around the 180 at the start and finish line with Barry taking over the lead with Kenji turning in to early avoiding hitting Barry.

All in all Barry drove a great race congratts to Barry.

Found a new part, I believe, today at the track (latest Mugen shipment came in):

T0122 Wheel Hub Spacers

They're 1 mil wide silver disks that fit on the wheel hex. With zero offset Fast tires, I was still able to get the nuts on, but it feels safer by turning them around backwards.

Thumbs up

Well, I drove my MTX3 on the track for the first time today. I am very impressed. It took me about 30 minutes to get it dialed in to my liking. My only changes were:

40 shore front / rear
purple springs in rear
caster clips all behind the arm.

The car is awesome. I drove pretty much until the tires were thin. Lots of steering, very stable and planted. I reminds me a lot of the GT4, but better I think. Can't wait to race it a couple of times and play with tuning options more.
