BTW: The tensioner looks cool but prefeer to use the 'cheap' wire tensioner, gives me a better feel when I need to retension it (and sorry, remembers me to a Impulse with those aluminium piece. )

I liked the tensioner bit too. was going for a Kawahara belt tensioner till i saw this. since it is incorporated as a brace so why not try it out. i am using the Mugen 4mm chasis too. great stuff.

the brace does look great on the car but I do agree with Corse-R even if quality is not an issue.

BTW: This weekend will test the 16/19 combination. Any advice on the height split of the tyres (F/R)?

Sunday I'll 'convince' someone to say me where are mine NS12 (have a Dirty Harry Magnum here.... )

Ok. thanks for the data. Will be good to have this tyre split for the finals.

Yes, I'm able to source kevlar armored belts of whatever leght in 3, 4 and 5mm width. Ordered some 363mm on 4mm width and are quite cheap.

Hi,

I have a few sets of tire left from my other car. Can i use those on MTX-3? I heard someone mentioned that MTX-3 requires -2 degree foam tire? Is it true ? Can i just just 0 degree foam tire instead?

Thanks.
