Default MTX4R

Hey guys I am thinking about selling my brand new Mugen MTX4R. The car is built but never touched a track. The chassis has absolutely not one scratch on it. Like I said, it is brand new.

Any ideas how much this car is worth?

I also have a screaming Mega .12 ZX with about 1.5 gallons. Any idea what that may be worth?

Hey Ron, what else do have to give away for free?
Watcha need Stefan? J/K

Did you have a good holiday? When are you flying out here again?

Ceramics should free up the drive train... I would not suggest using the ceramics on the wheel hubs though...

Pretty soon I will need to buy few rear bearings for my engines. I'm thinking to get ceramic bearings.

Who is the best bearing maker : Acer, Boca, or TKO ?

PM me. Thank you.

I think you have to dig in your wallet around $350 deep

16 x $22 = $352. <---- almost 1 kit, or 1 engine.

I rather spend the money for 1 more kit or 1 more engine if you ask me ......

staikosn1,

I have ACER ceramics on my car and they do make the drive train more free and more smooth. If you're looking for a little advantage here and there and can spare about $100, I would go for it.

You may get them here:

I don't think using ceramics in the centax clutch would effect a decrease in engine temperature.

I would use ceramics in the clutch bell. These bearings holdup better than stock when dealing with heat from from the clutchbell. But I don't think it will cause the engine to run any cooler.


Pass you soon...

Is logic,with ceramic thrust and clucthbell bearings the spinning is better cause the ceramics balls can spin less for the same result as steel,and heating is less for the motor!!
In theory it works fine,but will see!!!
