Fast tires mounts tires on actual MTX wheels, so I am sure they will have the correct offset. I am wondering about the dish wheel they have. Does it have the correct offset. Also, what about some of the other GRP brands, such as Enetti, Ellegi etc. I would prefer not to have to use spacers to get the correct width. Can anyone shed some FACTS on this subject please....
we use 0 offset in the uk rubber class too

If you run 0 offset and 200mm front track width your doggies will fall out even easier.

i think the correct offset is 2 degrees for the wheels as fast tyres have a mtx-3 specfic wheel i think. which has the 10 spokes in shape of an arrow.

You can use any tires, any offset. Just add the the MTX-2 1mm wheel adapter spacers on all four.

Default Big Apple 'break-In' Postponed 'til 8/15/04

Unfortunately we have a 90% chance of heavy rain headed our way and decided to wait until the evening weather report was released before we made a final decision.

Tomorrow's scheduled Big Apple 'Break-In' race we regretfully have to postpone until Sunday 8/15/04.

Please accept our sincerest appologies for any inconvienience this may have caused any one.

The MTX-3 Prospec has been out in Australia for a little while now. I am not exactly sure on the price but I think its about $100 more than the standard kit.

Default Clutch bell

What is a good way of removing the gears from a clutch bell. I use loctite on mine, tried warming the bell to 400 deg for 5 mins but still no luck to back off the gears. Any suggestions.

Is there a tool to remove the gears from the bell, if so who make it?
