Default MTX Belts

Chewed up a rear belt and my LHS didn't have a replacement. It seems the Trinity Reflex NT rear belt is the exact same size. Perfect fit! Does anybody else know if other cars use the same front and side belt as the mtx3?

I also run at tracks that run rubber tires. The Takeoff preglued fit very well w/o rubbing. What other wheels will work?

most of the people here strip the front belt instead and I have once strip one in the front too. not having a problem with the rear belt yet.

Rclover told us the V1RR special side belt (375mm) does fit the MTX3.

3. learnt that the kawaha shorter belt with the 19/T and 16T will obtain a better tyre consumption. the front and real wil consume the same rate...is that right ?

tire consumption rate depends on track conditions, driving style, engine power etc etc.

the 19/16 provides you OD in the front i.e. you may use smaller front tire to improve steering characteristic. diameter split front and rear is 3mm to obtain 1:1 ratio.

why run a dif but if you must 100000 in front and 3000 in rear if that doesn't give you rear traction nothing will.

It is not always a diff issue when your rear end is loose.

the setup sheet said rear camber is 3' but I end up using 4' and 2.5' rear toe.

this gives me good rear traction.

You also need to check rear ride high to make sure your rear end doesnt scratches the ground on cornering.

I agree with Manti, its not always the dif. As a matter of fact, if its been a couple of weeks, I would recomend going back thru the car head to toe to make sure that nothing is binding or tweeked. I can't tell you how many times a loose car for me has always been something I missed.
