I just saw you dropped your price, I would be interested, but I already have 5 nova based engines. Good luck and if you don't sell it, you will probably get at least that much on ebay as long as you provide a picture or two.

There may however be a measurable difference in laptimes due to fine tuning the gear ratio to the track, as the .8m gives you a broader range of ratios.

This was suggested to me by someone and my own experiences would suggest this is a possiblility.

Front roll center is lowered which gives more front traction
that is only true if the rear roll center is higher than the front, and only comming ino and turn and right before the exit - rite?

Default 0.8 gears

i see that the topic i started has no real answer across the boards, i see that the mugen drivers use them and u can see this your self if u look at a setup sheet from mugen racings site. both collins and swauger have them on their sheets, thats good enough for me.

Default BIG NEWS x 2!

Well, one of the big news is that the new Kyosho VoneRRR is currently kickin' a$$ in Brazil.

Second is that there is news that Mugen is currently testing the new MTX-4(if it even called that).

So, my question to you MTX-3 fans out there is......

What changes/improvements do you want on the MTX-4 over the MTX-3?

Maybe Mugen will hear us.


Me, I want....

Centralized fuel tank with clearances for the throttle servo horn ala MRX-4.

Adjustable front roll center.

One piece rear shock tower/body post mount.

Vertical rear inner camber link mount

More upper shock mounting positions front and rear(I race rubber).

Top load front/rear diffs.

Single or lighter brake disc and lighter brake hub.

Lighter mid/two-speed pulley hubs.

Lighter/smaller diffs and two speed assembly.

Standard fifth body post.

Easy change ackerman adjustments.

And dare I say, laydown throttle servo like the RRR and a lower radio deck.

The shock/steering/sway bar pivot balls could be lighter too or hard anodized aluminum like KFactory's.


BTW, I still think that the MTX-3 is fully capable of giving the RRR some stiff competition despite the MTX-3's age. But since people in the know say that Mugen is currently developing the MTX-4, I say give them all the input that we can(again, IF they are listening).


What do you guys want?

Yes, all that . . . plus, I want....

Better free roll - soft belts like V-One RR.
Ability to get the clutch bell off without loosening the engine.
More durable 2-speed clutch.
Single screw adjustment for front droop.
19T first Gear (0.8M).
A decent belt tensioner.
4mm engine mount screws.
3mm longer front shock shafts.

. . . . . not much to ask, is it.

Taylor-Racing Ability to get the clutch bell off without loosening the engine..
The trick is to make sure the inside bearing doesn't come along with the clutch bell and you should be able to remove it without loosening the engine. I usually just use a 1.5 to push the bearing back while I'm removing the bell. Good luck.
