Will the 2-speed from a MTX-3 fit directly onto a MTX-2?

Mugen's own 2-speed will not fit the MTX-3. If I reckon, the original 2-speed was finger type. In contrary, the MTX-3 is shoe-type.

I remembered I had to use Kawahara MTX-2 2-speed on my MTX-2.

regards,

Default Da 2 Rules!!!

I built a 705 but still have my outlaw MTX2 In all fairness I'm not use to the 705 but my friend is and the little 2 walked all over the 705!!! I tryed again to drive it and cliped the wall (not very hard) and It broke a upright ($9.00) and a shock rod ($11.00) Think I'll stick with the MTX2

Isn't the MTX-3 2-speed a copy of the Kawahara 2- speed for the MTX-2?

Someone here made the MTX-3 tranny fit on their MTX-2, BUT it required a LOT of mods & cutting. Personally, I think it's not worth it. Just buy the Kawahara tranny.

Couldnt agree more! in fact Kawahara's 2 speed shoes are much better then Mugen one, it holds up much better, the one on my mtx3 last only 9 mths, and the Kawahara one in my MTX2 lasted for ages!

Perhaps, after their collaboration--Kawahara+Mugen--we shall expect to see better QC in the MTX-4 or MRX-4.

best,

Well, I kind of look at it differently, if any manufactoy makes a perfect kit, then all the hop up company will be out of business!

For example, the MRX3 works kit, there are only a few aftermarket hop ups, and most of them will not help the performance at all, say in my case, I am one of those hop up freaks and I have no aftermarket parts on my MRX.
