I think the pivot point is too much off from the actual pivot point of the suspension. too much stress on the joint.

Yeah, that review isn't very flattering, is it!

We've only been running the MTX-3 for about four months, and with a big event coming up, I thought I should check the front Mugen uni's. I was initially lubricating them with graphite powder but lately using moly grease and saying "to hell with the dust".
Anyway, while they were working just fine, they did show some wear on the cross pin and it's hole. I installed new pins and used the alternate hole and they're now as snug as new.

For those that have been wondering about the 16/19 conversion, I recorded some tyre wear numbers from last weekend's VORTEC Champ's that you might find interesting.

Front Right Started/Finished: 58mm - 56.8mm
Front Left Started Finished: 58mm - 56.4mm

Rear Right Started/Finished: 63mm - 60.2mm
Rear Left Started/Finished: 63.5mm - 58.8mm

We used Sato tyres 37F/40R. Traction was good and the track is a large flowing one and runs clockwise. The main was 30 minutes.
My driver likes to use brakes to have the rear end move out on a couple of the hairpin turns, so we tried to anticipate this somewhat in terms of tyre wear. This all worked fine, but it just might have been better using 40F/42R.

Default Tires?

What is a good tire for running without any traction control(vft,soda).
I'm an electric driver getting interested in Gas.

I have a lot of Sorex sets (20,24,28,32,36) but no other rubber tires.

Thanks

Ive used sorex 32 on non prepared temporary tracks and they work fine, a good compromise between performance and wear! just make sure to use hard dish wheels, wheels no round perfect will make your sorex wear inmediately.
guys, the 16/19 conversion will make wear even if using the front one way . if using the front diff will make the wear even with the stock pulleys, right!

I don't know of any subs but you can try www.acehardwarehobbies.com for mugen parts. They're here in the bay area so shipping to you would only take like a day or so. That's who I get most of my mugen stuff from.

- 16/19 side belt conversion (use some aluminum pulleys)
- CVD's instead of dogbones
- 0.8 gears depending on the track
