Now talking in serious....

Lurking on rcmodel site, found some interesting for those interested in reducing weight from their car and don't want to buy a Ti screwset.

Click here

Have heard from them in the past, but mainly custom made...

Just finished mine car for this weekend and weighted it: 1718Grams..... not bad at all counting that I use the Mugen 4mm chassis.

Not exactly. The clutch spring (and their different rates) along the clutch shoes are here for adjusting the launch of the car at different rpms (the way of being of the centax clutches) depending on the track conditions.

At higher the traction and grip, the stiffer clutch spring (for launching at higher rpms and more hole) and the softer clutch shoe (for more grip between engine and gears). Launches harder and more violent - twitchy in some cases. Think on a Monkey kick.

The lower the traction and grip, the softer clutch spring and the harder clutch shoe for promoting a lower rpms and less violent clutch engagement. Think on a gentle push.

But beware, as higher rpms clutch engagement, the engine makes more heat and stresses your transmission, but sometimes is advised to do. Don't do in excess, isn't so good, to adjust your clutch to imitate the launch of the Funny cars dragster class (don't, repeat.... isn't wise to launch from still doing wheelies).

I think I'm the only one here with a box stock MTX3 Unless there are others like me here who race for the "Empty Wallet Racing Team". The weight of my car with body on, new foams and empty tank is 1788 gr.

beg you pardon, I'm the fish.

To lighten the entire car, screw set is not the only one to consider. Try the 2-Speed shaft, the mid shaft, the pillow-balls, etc.

Whoa! a box stock MTX3.... a very rare and scarce to find car.

Seriously: MTX3 from stock goes and performs very very well, but since is a car that doesn't need wrenching/fighting/messing with it we need to mess with it putting hop-up options and pieces with fancy colors.

Hop-up options only works for making your car different to the one of your track buddy or to get some kind of desired behaviour, not for fixing horrible flaws with the car (as other mfgs needed to do).

An important question:

What kind of fish are you? Tuna, Marlin, Barracuda, Piranha, Shark or a Goldfish?

look at my current avatar, it looks like a handicapped fish, eh?

Tuna is a bloody fish, a chicken from sea.
Marlin is the ultimate fishing I can only dream of.
Barracuda is pretty tasty.
Piranha is sissy when in captivation.
Shark is not fish.
Goldfish is a man-made genetically fish.

So, what am I? I am the fish that love the MTX-3!

hoo rey!!!
