And even if they're not the same quality as the Mugen Uni's you can get them here http://www.jplracing.com/shop/ for $11 a pair. Even if they don't last as long you can still get 3 pairs for the cost of one of the "better" quality ones.
3 Racing universals are absolute crap. My track is fairly high traction and I've broken them without hitting anything. Yeah, you can by 3 pair for the price of one Mugen pair. It's a little time consuming to replace if they break during a main.

I think it is a very bad idea to lighten the flywheel on the inside, because you need a smooth surface for the flyweight to operate right and consistant!

I am afraid your flyweight might get caught or stuck by the round hole!

Since you have already have a bunch of holes there, you might want to chamfer them and make them as smooth as possible!

Just my $0.02

I have been using this design for a long time now on all of my mtx3's, and it works great.

The original post that was made I couldn't find. I did however find this site who has them, but they are in hong kong. I ordered them anyways. They only accept paypal and a few other methods.

Hi guys!!


Just arrived from my weekend racing 600km away from home...
An more-or-less important race for me... I was using my third engine...

My car was running fine with 40/40 tyres, but then when entering the high speed sweeper i might have gotten my trigger to the neutral(I found that after the race) as I was using drag brakes, (which I am not very used to) my rear end slipped a little bit then the car flipped over... Results: Broken wing + broken rear bearing;

At this time(as I didn't have enought time to work on the setup) I fitted some 45 tyres at the front, but at this time I needed to get plenty of Dual Rate for some turns, but wasn't flipping...

I suppose I should try to get my rear end more bite when entering the turn so i can run on 40/40 tyres...

Or maybe, make my rear end slip more and use 45/40 tyres...

Any ideas/comments/suggestions/anything?

PS: for the results, as It rained before de B Main(I jumped straight to the A Main - Roar style), I ended up with a 6th place overall... not bad for an improvised 45tyre half a minute before the qual.

Is there any other place where I can order titanium screws online???


Buy them HERE ===> Dinball - RC Mart

There are others that sell bulk screws also....and maybe other packagers of screw kits for the MTX-3.....I've had nothing but good quality from Speedmind, although I've never tried their titanium screws......
