Default Mugen MTX and MRX4 gears

Can anyone tell me if there is a difference in the 1st and 2nd clutch gears on the Mtx2, Mtx3, and MRX4X. I have several sets from older cars and
I was wondering if they are all the same.

The pitch on the 3 pro-spec. 4 & 4r are .8 and the 3 are 1.0.
The clutch bells are not the same from the 3's too the 4's

He is asking about the older sedans and the new 1/8th scales. He did not ask about the .08 new geared sedans.

I think that they are the same, not sure though. I was wondering the same thing. It has been so long, do the old sedans use the same amount of teeth?

I would think the only way to be sure would be to check the diameter of both sets of gears. If they are the same diameter then I would think that they are the same. The clutch bell looks the same.

If you can take the spur off of one of the cars and it will mesh into the spur of the other car then they are the same pitch. The .08 gears are a finer pitch and will not mesh all the way together.
