Default $$$ Mugen MTX Need your advise

Getting ready to dive deep into the wallet. Going to buy Mugen MTX 3, I need advice on what motor, servos, and all the tricked out parts. MONEY IS NO OBJECT! I don't want to get to the track and see something I should of bought. I know there is the driving skill issue, that's why I have to have the baddest of the bad. Thanks for any help. Joered

I would buy the Mugen Pro-Spec,Mugen X-12 motor and a Airtronics M-8.This is a pretty expensive setup but this would be an excellent setup.The Pro-Spec comes with pretty much all the important hop-ups in the box.The motor in my opinion is the fastest stock motor you can buy.Hope this helps.

Default MTX 3; Money no Object

I agree completely. Maybe a Futaba 3pk radio with HRS receiver and (2) Futaba 9451 digital servos for steering and throttle. The Pro spec has almost everything needed.


Kawahara belt tensioner
Kawahara rear sway bar combination
Kawahara rear body mount / made for neg. diff
( the neg diff is not needed )
Kawahara 5th body post plate

These are additions I have added to my kit.

Make sure to purchase a pinion gear tool to help remove pinions. If you race on different track, small, medium, and large, gearing is a must.

I have (4) clutch bells with different gearing of pinions and I have 3 sets of 1st and 2nd spur gear housings that have all combinations of spurs for any situation. 58,59,60 spurs for 1st gear and 52,53,54 for 2nd. I can change gearing within minutes if car is sluggish or not performing best. You can use Kawahara or 3 Racing housings for 1st or 2nd. I don't mix the two. All 3 Racing or All Kawahara.

Best of luck!
