Mugen MTX6 hard wheel axles & alloy clutch bell
Mugen have introduced new option parts for the MTX6 1/10th 200mm touring car in the form of hard-anodised aluminium wheel axles and a nickel-plated aluminium clutch bell. The 7075 alloy wheel axle shafts are a direct replacement for the stock parts and they are designed to scrub both unsprung weight and rotational mass, resulting in improved on-track performance. Additional machining further scrubs weight and different sets of cross pin holes allow to use a fresh pair of holes once the actual start to show signs of wear, improving the lifespan of the parts.
Also new is the nickel-plated aluminium clutch bell. Designed to replace the standard bell the alloy part greatly reduces the drivetrain’s rotational masses for improved acceleration. The nickel-plated surfaces ensures a long lifespan and durability and the clutch bell is usable with the standard pinion gears.
