You're definately going to break parts so if the LHS has parts for the .12 mugen then I'd get it. The .12 engine is probably ROAR legal so you can race at your local club. GL.

shaft i think, snappier acceleration, dont have to replace belts, you can run in an unprepared parking lot(pebbles dont get stuck in belts) and just plain tougher.
BTW-2 speed is a must for any on-roader. unless of course you want to accelerate like a freight train from a standstill.

In my opinion, it is a toss-up between belt and shaft drive. However, here is one thing that the shaft-drive racers can't do: fine tune their cars for speed via varying the sizes of the pulleys. You can change front/rear drive ratios to suit the track or track surfaces by changing the pulley sizes whereas the shaft cars are pretty much stuck with the gears size of the shaft gears and diff gears that come with the kit with little to no variation. I have and run both and don't see much difference between the two layouts.

You change cars more than I change shoes. I was hoping that you would sell me your MTX-3, I needed a backup one to the one that I current race at the big track. What happened to your CD-3 experiment?

There is one thing I can say about the shaft car, it is more balanced than the belt car (speaking of the NTC3 in particular). Yes, not having to change belts is a very big plus. So, there are good and bad things about both types of cars. This is the same as the Ford/Chevy, Toyota/Honda arguments. Both are good, it just comes to what you prefer.
