replaced the kit bearings with the ceramic nitride bearings today. spent me 3 hours and it is a dirty job !!


(Note: The Ceramic Nitride bearings in sizes 4x8, 4x8F, 3/16x5/16x.1094, 6x10, 1/2x3/4, 1/8x3/8, 5x9F, & 5/32x5/16 sizes currently are available only with the Teflasonic Dual PTFE seals)


does the ceramic bearing set include the 2 in the clutch bell?
how much heat these bearings can take?

Does MTX-3 requires the bearing sizes in the above?

the header is useless. it limits the power of your engine.

Today I switched to the "A" rear blocks after the quals out of curiousity and because a fellow racer had his working good with "A"s. My car actually worked better, even with the cut-down "cartman hubs" . The rear-end was more stable and more predictable. I ended up using Mugen blue springs and used two thick shims under the outer camber link ball. My previous set-up used Mugen purples and "C" rear blocks with no camber shims. Funny thing is that the top MTX-3 racers here were using totally different rear setups(and blocks) with excellent results.

Our track temps averages 135 deg. F so the rubber tires that we use(Sorex 36-40R, Yok 138GH) "grease-up" after three-four laps. Finding traction in this situation is really tricky especially on a technical track.

This is one of our many track layouts............. Actually, this one was a rush job.

the RD logics is nice and you cant go wrong with it. performance is similar to novarossi 52605 inline. I recommend shark (outlaw) or 5 stars (outlaw) with kawahara header.
