Post SHIFT POINT

It is easier to find shift point if running car in a wide open space than on a tight or restrictive race track...imo

Do you have the 0.8module? If you do, then it is harder to notice the shift since it is so smooth.
I am not sure about the 0.8 module. i have whatever the kit came with. I am still trying to get used to this car and its parts. i had the ntc3 and was familiar with that. It'll take me a liitle bit to learn alll the new stuff on this car, but so far i'm loving it. thanx for the info.

You should notice gear shift point...it is subtle but noticable
Thanx for the help. I was at a local track today and another guy had an mtx-3 and i could tell when his shifted. I will try the 2.5 turn and see what happens.

Thanx all

never heard of the car shifting harder. Faster i guess may mean to loosen the screws so that it shifts quicker/sooner.

Thank you Nitropimp and Racecar850 for your replies

Kreidel: no I wouldn't base my decision solely on a piece of electronic equipment. But thank you for asking

I will most likely will go with the Mugen as I know it better and know where I can get parts easily for it. I'm running the GS Vision Pro right now, but the part supply for my area just dried up.

Thank you for the replies

DarkAngel- (Man I loved Jessica Alba in Dark Angel) anyways you can't go wrong with a MTX-3 Awesome car. Also you have THE BEST forum with people that well help with your car. Go stock setup first.

I can always get several set-ups from the top guys at the track if i don't like the stock.

the darkangel name is from the japanese manga of the same name not the tv show. I think I've only seen the show once.

On large tracks mine is bottomed, one small tracks out about 1-1.5 turns. Make sure you have a small gap between the shoes, adjusted with the grub screws or else the cam will over rotate and jam in second.
The two speed shift point is determined by your first gear pinion and the power available so is quite variable.

A fellow MTX-3 racer made a couple of these, primarily just to try out. The main purpose is for head protection.
Made from 1/8" dia steel, with two alum standoffs attached to chassis.......very simple, anybody should be able to make them. Head protection works...tried it out last Sunday
Here`s another view........
