wrong thread, this is all about the MTX not the MRX

...but they don't have it in stock. I would bet the price will go up about $50 when they finally get some in.

Default Rc-toro

The MTX-4 kit that RC-toro is selling is not the US kit. It does not come with a set of GRP tires, and the serial number is from a kit destined for Hong Kong. Because of this, these kits will not be supported by Mugen USA. By buying these kits you are hurting your local hobby shops. I personally went to this supposed store and found a residential home. The owner of this operation has been served with papers ordering him to stop selling the overseas kits.

The Hobbytown that I deal with says his price is around $600.00 I believe in supporting my local shop, but I`m not going to pay $250.00 more for it. The owner of the shop has told me that if he cant get a reasonable price to purchase it, then he wont be able to sell any of them. If you could point me to a shop that carries them in the USA for around $400.00 I would be glad to order from the USA.

Slot Machine. The price of $600.00 is way above what we are selling the to hobby shops. We cannot tell the hobby shops what to charge, within reason. I know for a fact that you can get a legal US kit for cheaper. I will look around for you, and try to find a better price. In the meantime I have talked to my teammate Robbe Collins, and we are researching places where you can get a better deal. We will post are results soon.

Thanks,

Thanks very much!...........I do like Mugen cars, and want the newest model, although I am happy with the current mtx-3.

Thanks Kitty and Litespeed for the info. Bruckners and Gasscar both sell the kit for $449.00, which is a fair price. Remember if something seems to good to be true it probably is. I know the MTX-4 is not the cheapest sedan out there, but you do get the support of myself and other team drivers not only online but also at the big races.
