I noticed in one of your post you had mentioned your running +1 camber on the rear?

Diagram looking from rear: \\ --- // (exaggerated angles)

What is that receiver enclosure you're using now? Looks a little like a film canister.
not sure of measure ment but to the angle, will post at weekend or pm you
yep they are K factory, aslo check out www.microtechracing.com for thier own

typo should be -1

yep it is a film canister light and water proof

After that? any more problems with it?

I just switched to the MTX-3 from the NTC3, which I really loved but broke too easily....but I really liked the lack of rolling resistance when coming off the throttle...for my style of driving (no drag brakes, minimum rolling resistance), do you guys think the negative diff will improve MY lap times?

It's a big investment for a "test"....

Thanks,
Mark
it drives sweet!! the drag-brakes effect would probably be coz of the belts which is normal.. fact is the car felt the same as it would while braking with the normal diff or neg diff..

it the pull on the straights that's different.. good stuff!

You can buy a Mugen bag of pulleys (come 4: one of 16T, two of 19T and one of 24T - sorry, don't remember the spare part no). And use what you need.

Uhm.... are you using split tyres or all 4 of the same size? belt should upkeep very fine If using 4 tyres of the same size you're stressing so much the belt and binding the transmission.

Regarding 0.8 gearing... Yesterday received mine gears and went to try at the track and a big smile was on mine face.... Sweeet! 2nd gear isn't no more sluggish (and now, I'm using a 5 tooth split - finding a suitable gearing for this weekend). Now is 21/60 and 26/53.

i was running about 1mm smaller in front..

the 0.8 modules work so well for everybody...mine is a 6 tooth split 20/59 and 26/53 as i needed more acceleration for 1st gear in the tight infield

you need 363mm side belt for the conversion to work, this belt is available exclusively from our Corse-R!

In short, you need to buy 1 additional 16T pulley to replace the side-rear 19T pulley and move this 19T pulley to the side-front, keeping your 24T pulley in the tool box, that's it! Just rope the 363mm belt to it and ta-ta...your on the go!

Nope, this pulley change will give you better rear tyre wear (rear tyres will wear evenly with the fronts). But need to use different sized tyres (3mm of diamter difference between fronts and rears).
