The part number listed in the book is just 2.5x11.8 pin. Quick google turned up a few listings. http://www.rcconsumables.com/product...roducts_id=469

i had alot of trouble with the plastic front diff leaking, I tried a few things to get it to seal but no luck.

I ended up having to buy the 3 racing aluminium one.

Stopped leaking but damn it's heavy.

Hey Guys,

Well i been working away hard on the New kit MTX4R, so far its been the best build so far not just coz its Mugen but i think the quality on how everything went i was amazed - previouse car was Team Magic G4S, enjoyed the car, just a few differance between the both in-regards to the shocks, found Mugen shocks TOP QUALITY for sure!

Well the car is not far way from intial start and test, added a Simple Setup that came with the car kit - just waiting on transponder, some steel pionions, body Altis 2.3, tyres and a few hopups.

Once they arrive next week, the running in on the NEW OS TZ.12 P3 and then some seriously needed practice at our club in South Australia Littlehampton: http://www.rrcsa.org.au/rrcsanew/ also check out my blog that i have been doing of the build up of the MTX4r: http://mtx4r.blogspot.com/

As you prob would know i do web design so yeah i do get carried away with presentation and just enjoy sharing info, pics with you all.

Regards
Frankie
