I totally agree with Grinder. If that Acer Chick can be on it for years, so can the bearings...

Default I know it's been asked but.......

Been searching for a while but I'm trying to dig up the complete parts list for a front diff in the MTX-3. Big track season is drawing to a close and I want to try the car for a bit with a diff up front. I have the halves but I need the parts list for the innerds. Thank you for your help!!!!!!

is a same case you could use bevel gear for reg. diff. justrc and kawahara make adaptor for solid. Try both of them you might like them all. depend on the track and your driving style

'Tis a sad day. The cold weather just reminded me I need to winterize my MTX-3.

Kinda wish I could race it one more time.

Centax clutch problem!! Need Help.

I can't get my my clutch to engage. Basically when i gas the car, it doesn't go anywhere. I tried to loosen the springs but still same thing??? I ended up taking the the clutch assembly apart like 10 times adjusting that darn spring - nothing! I've loosen it to a point where I can use my hands and loosen it.

So I thought it was something else - like my flywheel not catching the SG shaft? Tried to take that off - ended up breaking my SG shaft!!! ARGH!!!! I had to buy a new engine cause I can't get parts for my sirio .12.

Anyways. Any tips or suggestions? I do have a few questions...

The thrust bearing?? There are two washers on each side of it right? Because on the manual it said that the thrust bearing is 1 piece and it doesn't refer to the washer on either side as a part number??

What might be the reason that I can't get the clutch to grab? Did I assemble the unit wrong? Also, do you guys know if the mtx3 kit came with a cone that goes on the engine where the flywheel sits? Or do you use the one that came with the engine?? I'm confused...I've got two cones - one smaller (black) one is larger and it's gold color....dont' know which one to use...

Unfortunately I got the car second hand w/o the engine. So I'm having to reassemble the clutch...any help would be appreciated!!!!! It's really frustrating!

GAry

If I could afford to fly, both money and time wise, sure!

It's probably a good thing. I really need to do a full tear down before I run it again. I also have a speedtech order to make before it goes back on the track. I have one CVD & one Uni. in the front, kinda tore one off the last time it was on the track..heh...heh...

CVD ripped? That sounds me to 3Racing universals... Anyway, next weekend have a National Round in 1/8 (27/28) and 4/5 Nov the last in 200mm.

After this, unless I engage in some weekend run at mine local track, cars should be kept in dry until the next season and go to the indoor season (Pan cars in carpet rule ) starts to make cold, windy and probably damp conditions.
