Well may be you just didnt get what I posted! you are just not as smart as I thought you are! Or may be your statement is just a BS statement!

isnt it a rule of thumb? harder last longer, doesnt grip as much as softer one? I guess it would apply to foam tires too! Also there is no such thing as "Better", all depends on tract condition, driver and set up!

and besides I know the person who asked this question very well, so I know if I listed the differences he will make the right judgement if it is better for him or not!

very true ah10.

i remeber this guy was complaining too many BS on this thread but i think his last one is a true BS and was trying to push off someone from asking question here. there was no obvious answer to his question until the one i quoted from you above.

"it is good" is not an answer. "I love it" is not an answer. they are just end result but they never said anything about "How" and "what" to make the red better.

hey guys

has anyone tried the kawahara solid rear axle ?

Does it work well on a relatively low traction track? (blown clean parking lot)

Does it reduce rear traction while improving power when exiting the corners?

thanks for any insights

Manti, correct me if I am wrong.

Different hardness clutch shoe will allow you with different centex adjustments, for example if you are setting your centex to engage late for the punch then you probably need a softer material clutch shoe to grab fast and hard when contact(instead of slipping) since the clutch bell is spinning relatively fast! on the same token, if you set your centex engage early then you probably could use harder material clutch shoe.

IMO the harder the pad will give you more linear power curve while softer pad will give you more punchy feel. i.e. they are also related to condition of the track.

yes you are right, if you set a soft pad engage too early or a harder pad engage late, you will lost power.

Red pads are the same material...

That is all I use, in both the mtx and mrx it will glaze up, I like this, then it stays the same for a while i have had mine in since jan and I kinda run alot...maybe average 3 to 4 times a week.
I also use the silver spring and drill out the lightened fly weight to 4mm.

Wow! You guys are too serious.

The guys simply were joking with their friends and some one don't like it already.

The guy simply pointed out this thread is mostly BS and some one don't like it already.

No matter what, I think this thread is OK becasue at least you guys are not kissing each other's a$$.
