I have had very bad luck engines and cars and even people at the track threating me over stupid stuff that i have decided to get out of the hobby.
You need to take a Drive down South to the new Miami track. Don't give up on this hobby, it's so frustratingly fun. Cheack it out, we're friendly over there.

a freind gave me a used fr. one way.

i spin the left tires and its almost spin freely without any binding..but when i spin the right wheel it won't spin as freely as the other side..sort of the feeling of a very heavy diff oil spin...

since i have never use a front one way b4 i need to know if this is normal.

if not could it be repair or else...thank u very much.

This is not normal.....sounds like one one-way bearing is dead or dying.....I recommend tossing it and starting fresh....I've seen one-way tubes for as cheap as $20. You may try cleaning it well and see if that helps before giving up though.....if that doesn't help....start new.

Default How to remove gear from housing

Hi, Can some one tell me how to remove gear from housing?

I'm talking about the the small metal ones. I can remove the outside one (16t) by holding down the (20t) with a ranch no problem. But I don't know how I can remove the 20T, that's inside without damaging the housing.

Thanks

Great track. I found out about it on Sat and drove down to see it. On sunday I joined as a member and practiced until the races started. I hope to run with you guys the next time you race at RPR. It seems as though ALOT of the guys have Mugens.

Yeah there's a bunch, but there's a bunch of Serpents out there too. I'd say it's almost even. THere's 3 R40's out there trying to prove themselves. We have a little fun on the Track message board talking smack about car supremacy. See you next race. I'm the guy that wheels the big a$$ starter box on the cart.

In contrary, you could damage the pinions.

I'll be the guy with the MTX-3 running into the boards. HA!

If you are the same person, my dad was telling me you have been doing this for about 12 years and you have the cart because back in the day the cars always fell apart.

I was on the track message board and saw some posts. I was also trying to find out what setup the Mugen guys are using.

I've seen your cart before the first day of the series.

There shouldn't be a problem with the tension on the belt being too loose....is there?
Thanks for the responce. I will have to use up a set of fronts and stick a fresh set on the rear. I will run it and let you know asap.

Thanks for the suggestion,
Neo.

Yeah, he made that box about 10 yrs ago, and then I got out of it for like 8 yrs. I just started again and i tried out the box and it still worked! So i saved myself $100 when i got all my stuff again.

There are a couple of setups on the MTX3 Talk board. Ed and I put ours up. I started out with the Swauger setup from Ft. Myers that's posted on the Mugen website. Then I just kinda tweaked it a little bit for this track. Works for me, but I gotta tinker with it more, my rear was a little loose this weekend. There's plenty of people out there to help you if you need it. See ya
