Any ideas on the two speed?
Much probably was water in the 2nd gear clutch. There's not much you can do with this, probably will hold a little better if you do some light cuts to the shoes like a wet tyre, but you can ruin the shoes.

Hi guys, I have a friend who is also a fellow racer, and he has very little internet access. He runs a MTX-3, and is looking for a good rear sway bar. Could one of you direct me to a supplier, or source for the Kawahara unit? I'll get ahold of one for him. Thanks in advance.

Hi Guys,

Had a bad day today at the first round of the MMAI national championship.

It rained VERY heavy throughout the day, the rain was hopping off the ground about 2 feet!

We ran our cars in between the showers.

First I lost a throttle servo, then I had a problem with radio glitches, water in the receiver!

Then my two speed started to act up going down the straight it sounded like it was attempting to go into 2nd then drop out then back in, out, in etc.

I did manage to keep ahead of a 2003 SMP Slide for about 4 laps . . . he was on foams & I was using wet weather rubber!!

All the best
check your 2 speed shoes adaptor nut. there must have some "Dead spot" on the flat surfact so that the steel ball cannot move freely. this happened to my 2speed last week. take a look at it.

think of the ride high, if there is not any recess area there, the parts that above the 4mm chassis will be raised by 1mm.

Default Delrin Front Upper Suspension Arms

While being at the toy show, I ran into this great products by Nanteco System Engineers, Kanagawa, Japan. If you have been in the forum for quite some time, you may recall I once posted the black and white picture of it. Here's the real ones.

Here's another closer look at it. Notice that the 4 metal sealed ball bearings come preassembled.

they look great!, how much will they really reduce friction though, i already have that hingepin assembly lubed with Harken Team McLube, (its for sailing gear but works wonders on anything and everything) and if it is a vital piece, why arnt we seeing them built by the top companies right now, and why arnt they out for other cars that have been out a while?


either way, im sure it will somehow find its way onto my car!

For me that is 50 F' hot and I get all the power in 200 that others get at 250. so you probubly need to tune properly or add fuel to the mixture.


Got this off from another forum, is this guy telling correctly?
I have those dark brown deposit on the piston head while my pipe still spitting fuel from stinger, and the car not very fast.
Is that caused by too lean..?
It could actually be the other way around. If you run too rich (4 stroking) the motor will run too hot. If this is the case the top of the piston will look a dark brown colour like it is burnt. I any case, it sounds like you need a tune. Set the motor back to factory and then bring it out another turn top and bottom. Creep up on your tune from there. It also sounds like you may be too lean on top, and too rich on bottom.
