I don't think the gears fit.

As far as I remember, the inner diameter is more like the one that the Ofna LD3 has. I think the thrust bearing was only 4x9mm (5x10 on Mugen Centax)

Also, the clutch is too small for real high power engines, not enough contact patch between clutch shoe and bell.

one more thing, I had the Kawahara small diameter flywheel with the lowered engine mounts on mine, which is exactly the same than the one from the MTX3.

Default NovaMAx or MAx Power

hello Guys, Abit out topic..
I confuse Is once people talk about NovaMax Engine is it refering to Max Power Engine tuned by M.Fantini or is it refer to different engine. Where i should refer this?
Thanks

it has a few different name given by people.

Vmax, NovaMax, and the correct name should be MaxPower.

They are all referring to MAXpower.

Most of the MTX-2 are centax's. At least the ones I've seen.
Try to buy the MTX-2 prospec has all the hop ups.
These are the only pics I could find. What kind of reciever do you have??

i got the JR XS3 radio, with the RS300 JR reciever i know that someone at my local track is using this reciever on his MTX-3 and he had to shave abit of plastic off for it to fit.
and i love your avatar Nitropimp! where do you get these gif files from :P and only reason iwant the mtx-2 2nd hand is cause theres a guy at my local track who has 2 just collecting dust so he offered me the rolling chassis for just $100. thats australian dollars which is around $75 USD then i can get an engine OS TR- P
for another $75USD 2nd hand and shove it in and i get a competitive car for only $150 USD.
