You can find the Mugen MTX-2 pretty much anywhere for $199.99

Hope this helps,

Yes,it is a good deal. It is a very solid car. For $200 you can not go wrong. Only downside might be a parts issue later down the road.

Later,

If your'e looking to race on a big track then get the Pro-Spec. If you are going to race on a small/med track or just "bash", get the regular version with a front diff.

Buying the parts to build a diff can get expensive if you get a Pro-Spec and decide to get a front diff. It's cheaper to buy a Oneway.

I think its an "ok" deal. If you leave it stock, its fine but when you upgrade to other stuff, you'll wished you got an MTX3 instead.

Things like graphite upper deck, shoe type 2 speed which are already standard on MTX3 but not on MTX2. Not necessarily must haves but just some things to think about. Of course, the MTX3 is a little better too since is newer in design...

Anyways, just my opinion and $0.02

I agree with the PART SUPPORT. If you can afford, bump up another $100 and get the MTX-3, instead. Couldn't go wrong.
