It's part # C0227

It includes several washers...more than needed.

good idea to have a gear diff in handy if you are racing on a tighter, less traction course (e.g, a parking lot)

i am planning to get one in the future, but hunting each part down is bound to be more expensive and time consuming

but, isnt that what this hobby is about?

cheers!


so does anyone have an anwser to my servo saver question??

its all not too tough to figure out the parts needed for a front diff actually...
-diff gears set with o-rings
-diff washer
-drive cups
-2 pins for drive cups
-o-rings for diff case
-diff gasket
-diff screws
-and of course front diff case with pulley.

Is the minimum weight limit at the sedan nationals is 1700 grams without fuel? Without body?
1700 as it comes off the track no fuel, with body. Don't forget to consider tire wear. Last year they pre teched before and post teched after the qualifiers and mains. All cars every run.

Where did it go?
Does anyone have the problem of lose brake pin on the right rear bulkhead like I did? In this case, I lost mine. Was cleaning my car till I notice there WAS something missing.

I'm glad it wasn't the 24K brake pin I was about to use, right? Manticore? RClover?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I lost two of the brake pins last sunday. I lost one that goes on the chassis (vertical) and one that goes on the hub carrier (horizontal). They do not have specific part numbers. Anybody know the part numbers and where to get them? I live in Puerto Rico and there are no replacement parts locally.

By the way I raced the car for the first time last sunday. Lost a steering screw during qualifying and could not finish. Ran in the F Main and won the F,E,D, and, with all the excitement, ran out of gas on the C. Finished second on the C. Enjoyed it a lot.

Thanks

Jose

Cartman have you weighed your car with the aluminum options?i guess another reason I'm stressing the gram issue is i have some buddies with 705's decked out in aluminum and titanium and are bragging about the weight.However they have yet to run the cars on the track with the mtx3

Default Rubber

Hi,
We're starting to run on a parking lot track...ran a couple of tanks with foam, and they were used up WAY TOO FAST! (I'm sure the Michael Salvin .12 had something to do with that, too!)

Anyway, there's 3 of us here with MTX-3's and we're looking for a good "starting" setup for rubber. The lot is smooth and flat, but not sealed. We blow it off and will spray sugar water on it.

Also, please recommend tires that work!

Thanks,
Mark

Thumbs up Corse-R,

last weekend I ran my car with your belts and the 16/19 setup and I loved it.

I was faster than ever before.
The car just turns in like a dream.

The tire wear was the greatest plus though.

I started out with a 4 mm split in the morning, ran practice, 3 qualifiers and 15 min. of the main and ended up with a 3mm split.

I don't know why, but the balance between rear and front tire wear is much better now.

Thank you very much again.
You will get an order for afew more belts soon, if that's still ok.
