not with the original dogbones mine fell out before i put it on the track i know i could have put orings in
i dont know why they (dogbones) were so short i guess your supposed to put orings in but i didnt see it in the instructions
i didnt want to spend for universals if they were going to be too short im not running offset wheels just the pro spacer and if i set width to 200mm and they fell out i would have wasted my money

Hi Mike,

Here's what I have for spare so far:
T0135 Front Upper Arm MTX3: comes w/ a pair of upper arm, caster clips, hex nuts
T0136 Front Lower Arm MTX3: comes just a pair
T0137 Rear Lower Arm MTX3: also comes just a pair
T0138 Front Upright MTX3: just a pair
T0139 Rear Upright MTX3: also just a pair

Hope this helps. Remember, always stock parts.

I'm glad that Mugen hasn't done like Serpent does. You want ARM? Sure, which side, and you'll only just get that. Not to mention the price. yike!

are you sure you have the short front dogbones in?

is something bent?

mine doesnt make any noise while turning or any other time either i run mtx-2 dogbones now and they are longer so i would think they would be more likely to make noise

if its clicking i would say some piece is bad could maybe even be a bearing possibly in the one way you said it make no noise straight maybe when the oneway bearing spins in a turn it clicking

but im only guessing

The clicking noise is coming from the dog bones hitting the front axle shaft, when the wheel is turned, there is a slot in the axle shaft that the dog bone hits during rotation, to correct this problem try applying grease at the end of the dog bone to take away the metal to metal clicking sound.

I'd suggest using universals in the front of the car then you want have this problem for sure, this applies to any car.

Hello Robbie,

Thought GREASE is a NO NO to the outdrive. I don't remember the exact reason of it, but it's something like grease will bond easily with dust and small particle, and it'll be as though one keeps grinding his outdrive with sand, or something like that.

Sorry, I might be babbling. It's just too early for fish.

MTX3 is designed to use off set wheels. so all four dogbones are shorter then what you need when using 0 offset wheel. It makes noise, clicks, and pop out etc. To solve the problem,.keep the track width under 197 or insert O rings between dogbone and drive hub or add 1-2mm 6x8 spacer to the one way drive hub, use the spacer of non tubo glow plug do the job, or use MTX-2 's dogbones.

No grease!
