All Mugen Mrx3 or 4 2-speed parts will fit. Also the rear belt fits. Not sure on the Pulleys.

Having said that. It is my experience that Motonica parts are MUCH more durable. Especially the rear belt. It is wider and lasts much longer. I only used a Mugen once, and because at the time I did not have a spare.

Thanks for the info, As far as Kyosho parts that would work as spares, what would be common other than the clutch? belts? 2 speed?

Thanks

Mugen front cvd's work as well.

With the new ybslow 7075 lite-weight fixed wheel adapters and 7075 rear spool you can use Kyosho or Mugen rear cvd's as well. Available very soon.

What about the durability of the cvd's? With the usage of the very powerful engines even the standard dogbones steel pim's are destroyed very easily.

I use mobil 1 cv joint synthetic grease on all dog bone slots and pins and cv joints. I have noticed half the wear on all of these parts since I started doing this.

i am pretty certain that Kyosho and Mugen large pinions are not compatible.

The stock steel bones and optional ti bones hold up fine. I have yet to break a pin on any of them, and wear is minimal as long as you apply some grease.

Switching from dogbones to cvds will change the handling of the car so use them as a tuning option not just a 'hop up'.
