i mostly run 0 offset wheels. i think the car handles better with them. i can throw on my powers 42-40 0 offset trued to 62mm run it and then throw on the fast tyres 42-40 trued the same 2 degree offset and car handles way different. i like the 0 degree offset better. the narrower the car, the more traction you should have(in theory).

When buying used neg diff, check the following:

1. The condition of the Delrin Pulley, make sure all the teeth are there and in good condition. Yes, delrin wears.

2. The condition of each outdrive. The only problem on MTX-3 neg diff is that the outdrives wear out so fast. Well, anything wears. It's just that the neg diff outdrives wear faster than Mugen Stock rear diff outdrives.

3. The condition of the bevel gears, the neg diff bearing, the o-rings.

4. The condition of the finger-type clutch. After all what a neg diff would be used for without its Solid Axle Action.

best,

Would you happen to know what a negative diff would go for used? I found one but not sure what condition it is in. Let me know what you think......I think it is 6 to 8 months old.....Is the negative diff worth it?

I don't remember the part number, but it's the Mugen MTX-2 wheel spacer.

Kawahara MTX-3 Al Hex Wheel Adapter already includes spacers, so one can decide if he/she should need to use it or not.

best,

BTW I have the Kawahara wheel hexes, if that makes a difference...?

best to try with lower shore on your rear tires then work on it from there.

Default metal handle

hi guy,

where on the internet that i can order a metal handle and brace for the MTX3. The stock plastic handle is too fragile. Thinking on the line to the 1/8th on road style handle.

thanks

It seems I may have too much tractrion today, I am running 37 shores, with no offset and the car wanted to roll in alot of turns, If I tried taking any "u' type turns ...even wide and slow..the car seemed to roll over. What can I adjust to fix this? I assume this means the track had alot of traction today.

If you mean the roll bar, Kawara makes one and you can get it in the USA at:

But with those part numbers maybe at the Kawara dealer in your country.

Sounds like your car is rolling too much. Try the A rear blocks, and check your rear droop, camber and toe settings. My rear droo is at 5mm, rear toe at 2 and camber at -3.

Be aware :!: if you're running a sedan body, I bought one of those handles, don't know whether it was Kawa or 3 racing, or what brand it was but it wouldn't fit under a sedan body...too tall.
