I may be interested in a set of these if they help improve rubber handling. My current set-up is good already but with the intense competition a my local track, every little bit helps. I need the edge!

Thanks!
all the uk team use them, they are alot better . very rarely use roll bars, mine are actullt 1/2 thickness blades, and we run associated springs to, also run rear stiffer than the front. handles very much likea tc3 very nimble!

The MTX2 gears didn't have the shoulder. But they still work just fine!

I believe it is just a simple issue! I have seen quite a few ppl has this problem, but once I reset it the problem went away!

Here is what you need to check:

1. the set screw on both end of the clutch shoe, everytime when I see this situation 10 out of 10 is due to the gap between the 2nd speed housing and the shoe is too far apart! you need to turn the set screw in to close the gap. (once you have done that the shifting transition will be very smooth too!

the reason why it got stuck is the copper sleeve inside the screw to adjust shifting point got stuck with the shoe itself.

Hope it helps!

Any idea what we could talk about?

We can do a Request List for the next version of the car, like this, please consider complete it accordingly to your ideas/desires:

Dear Mugen Designers:

We are proud owners of the MTX3 car and is a superb car who handles like a dream, their plastics are durable but... On the threads regarding this car, there aren't things about discuss and we're quite bored, that's not fair, we want to take a good ride and enjoy in the threads, please, take this suggestions in mind for your next release of a car:

- Worse standard setup. Is too boring to put the standard setup and with subtle mods, have a car who handles like a killer. We want a twitchier car, difficult to setup and rude to handle who makes us sweat, like the S***** 705.
- Worse plastic quality. We run hours and hours, sometimes brushing quite hard the boards and none breaks (well some troglodites are capable of breaking the plastics ). How about making some parts weaker and makes us to visit more frequently our HS and bench racing with the buddies there and buying more parts?.
- Make it eye candy: Doesn't matter if adds weight or makes the car too pimpin'. If it shines, sure it quick (HPI sic).
