It's been a couple of years since the last time I bought Mugen parts but, NitroHouse had a good selection of MTX-4 parts in stock.

Default Front diff

Well, I assembled a front diff but when I tried to install it, I found that it is too wide. It's as if the shoulder that the right bearings sits next to needs to be machined down so the bearing can move about 2mm towards the middle. Anybody got a better solution?

For which Kyosho car did you buy one for? I was able to get mine to fit by machining ~2mm from where the right side bearing fits on the diff.

Look at the manual real good. When you install the pully on the diff housing, you don't use the end piece that you glue on to the pully like you do if you use the oneway. A couple of us had the same issue till we finally figured it out.

Default diff cups

Does anyone know which diff cups to use and the part numbers for the washers for making a front diff? I was just trying to order the parts but came up with two different part numbers mugt0261 or mugt0277. The manuel says mugt0261 but i do have the original mtx4.

Neither... You need to use The To-202. The washers come with the diff gears (C0-222a)
