RCLover, not sure if they'd work together, it might cause the hinge pins to bind. However in theory that would adjust your rear anti-squat, which should change the rear traction characteristics quite a bit. Used much more in offroad.
how u mean more forward bite?
i have chopped 5mm of mine so there the same hight as the mtx2 hubs (rubber tyres)

More shims seems to make the car straighten up out of turns sooner on the gas. Less seems to allow the car to drive rounder circles, less pushy. Maybe forward bite isn't the right term, maybe more bite overall, but I notice the diff. most when on throttle.

0 offset 30mm rear tires will rub the rear upright unless you put some sort of spacer in there

order the 2 degree offset if you can it just makes it easier

Default ROSSI PIXY

Anybody runing this engine in their MTX-3?

I have heard this engine is a bit bigger/longer than the Novarossi engines and was concerned if it would fit in the MTX-3 without any problems with clearances?

Also heard this engine is a bit heavier. Will this upset the low CG and handling charactristics of the MTX-3?


Thanks in advance!

Hi a guy at our local track had a Rossi Pixy in their Yok GT4 and then got themselves a MTX-3 and found that it didnt fit because of the different crankcase shape. So to my knowledge no it doesnt fit.

the engine is a bit heavier than say a sirio or mr12 but it fits in with no problems on mtx3 and you'd have to be a serious professional to detect any negative delta on handling caused by CG. At least I couldn't detect any. Great engine.

other than that of the above, the rest are not really necessary.
Does that centre block fron Sato Seiki fit on 4mm Mugen Chassis? I remeber some disscussion about it a few pages back I beleive that the RD Logics one doesnt fit without some modification but does the Sato Seili one fit? Whats the weight difference from the orginal plastic parts?

i am using the sato one and yes you need to trim the bottom part so that it may fit on the recess part.

The center belt block doesnt have any problem.
Its the radio plate support from Sato Seiki that required some slight filing around its 2 legs which go into the 4mm Mugen chassis. It took me less than 1 min to get it done, dont worry its simple!
They weight almost as light as the stock plastics.

this is for big block 3.5cc and 2.5cc engines

you can only use the exhaust port cap and the stinger cap on 2.11 cc
