man i would love to play on a track that can pratically use breaks

the dump ass who sets up the track here make the lanes and coner so close and so narrow that i rely on momentum to get thru some S coners coz the clutch won't engage at such a slow speed

and unfortunately that's the only track i am able to go to play

i wonder if this method will hurt the oneway bearings as the excessive force from the grub screws will force the outdrive shaft sit in an incline angle.

i have no idea if the inner diameter is 10mm or >6mm

I dont think there is enough slop in the bearings to worry about plus there wont be that much strain on the screws anyway.the oneway bearing takes the power and the screws will take the brake and cornering forces.......havent ran it yet but I will post here with results.

In this case I would suggest to use 2 grub screws at 90 degree apart from each others! by doing that it wont have that much stress on both grub screws and the outdrive since both grub screw will push the outdrive to the other side of the oneway bearing then you will have much more contact patch to stop the outdrive to spin!

Just my $0.02

Wow, what make you think that? You could be my boss some day, if your offer still stands. The chance to “rubbing shoulders” with a roomful of scientists is always my dream and why would I mess it up by pissing you off?

I was not thought to bahave this way. My apology nice, I meant nizee.
Can we just be friend? If yes good, if not then FOESAD.

BTW, JOOC, do you talk like that too? IMHO, people might have a hard time understanding you, DYU?

Lightbulb Mugen Shocks

I need some assistance, after a good day out on the track my Mugen shocks are no longer damping well. If I remove the springs and compress the shocks, the piston will not fully extend. The reason I found is that the diaphram collapses a bit and is no longer the shape of a dome. Anyone has this problem and knows of a solution? Thanks.

Whoa! Looks killer. Picked the idea. You just used a 3mm grub screw or is bigger?

BTW, mtx3 looks siiick!! Much better than my ntc3.....now I'll have to drive it first to determine the performance differences....but the craftsmanship on the car is just insane.

The manual is crap! Does anyone know if there's like a "tuning guide" for the mtx-3??
To have a starting point, use the stock setup is really good and with some slight changes to it, probably you will get your car dialed. You don't need to go much far from the stock setup to have a killer car and perfectly dialed.

Use the same size foams in the front and rear, don't play with split sizes now, grab a fresh set of tyres just bolt it and enjoy the car.
