There is no real visible difference between the two. Just small changes for strength in the upper rear bulkheads rear camber bridge steel diff gears, diff cases and the number on the box. I have the original kit and it works for me. Key tips, clutch build, gear alignment and mesh, and some type of brace. By the way I am trying to find a 4 mm chassis and all I see is the high traction chassis from mugen which I have, the Arena which is 3.3 and cso which is 3.2. Anyone tried these other chassis? I'm not completely satisfied with the high traction chassis even though it's better than the original.

Right now I'm using gray in the rear and dark blue front. Both are stiffer than stock. The whites are a little too stiff for me.

Greg, all chassis will bend, we found the Knack chassis stronger than either of the two Mugen chassis. Mainly because it's stronger between the engine and rear bulkhead supports, it has a slightly larger profile making it a little stiffer with only 3gr weight penalty. This is the second Knack chassis we have used with the first only changed because we were running in the Nationals not because it was bent. I would recommend this chassis as an excellent option to either of the Mugen chassis.

Mazda, could I purchase this chassis anywhere else besides pro futaba or knack racing? I'm looking for an easier website to order from.

I had a mtx4 and the x ray is way better and the cap came out after the X ray. But u can't lose with either one. The only good thing from mugen is the 8 scale.

I can't dispute the fact that the X is a great car that works, and I get that point, but I'm not ready to throw in the towel just yet. When I do, the X is the obvious choice especially knowing that u guys have great deals at Fordam Hobbies.!!
