Actually I think GRP version is available in Australia. At the shop here it is same price as Mugen Pro spec (A$800). I think it is GRP version, it has foam tires and front one-way. Does this sound correct Novarossi?

I just haven't seen any at track meets yet. Our club here usually get there hands on the latest things first.


If its the same price as the Mugen Pro, man must be it be a tough choice deciding between the two. Does the GRP Version come with a centax type clutch?

What I found funny on that site was :

MTX-2 Rolling Chassis - $649.90
MTX-2 with OS Hyper - $1081

$431 extra for the OS engine makes it the most expensive 12 in Australia

Apparantly no Centax, but comes with tires instead. Centax was was one of the main reasons I am getting MTX-2.

Is the link provided by TaybelZ the Kyosho equivelant to standard MTX-2 and GRP version is equivelant to Pro Spec? It seems that way to me.

Also is this the first you have seen of RMS site?! You seem to know alot of good RC sites on the net!

Nah, I've ordered heaps of stuff off RMS.

You do know you can whack an Mugen Centax onto a V-One-R, just incase that was your main concern.

Actually I was asking Novarossi if he had just seen RMS site, seeing as he knows all these other RC sites.
But your smart too!!

Hmmmm, has Kyosho released anything on its website about the car yet????

Rudy's car is a standard V-One-R with all the Kawahara hop ups. Im sure steve's car has ONLY the hop ups as well.

Show me a piture of a GRP version if its available

Yeah, I thought you could get centax to fit most any motor, but it would just be even more to spend. I figure Centax would cost more than set of wheels and tires. How much is centax seperately? Also is "Centax" a brand name or style of clutch?
NR are those braces standard or Kyosho options, where on net could I find info? Thanks everyone for help.

Here we go

Centax is the name that most companies use, which was generated by Serpent.

Mugen's "Centax" is actuall called an Axial Clutch.

When you here 'Centax', its basically the name that companies use to describe the Centrifgal Clutches. The actual spring controls the action of the clutch (ie when to engage/disengage)


Here is a great link which explains the differences between the two :

BTW,

Mugen Clutch cost about $240Aus complete. The only things which need replacing is the thrust bearing (about once a year, cost $11) and pinions (once every 6 months, cost about $55)

It is quoted as being the best clutch on the market (Many Kyosho Fantom 1/8th drivers use them)
