No, the MTX-4 is not going to be similar in design to the MRX-4. Go to www.mugenracing.com to catch the sneak peak of the front part of the CAD drawing. The rumor is it will be a styling combination of the Serpent 710 and Kyosho V one RRR. Again, that is only rumor.

Hi guys, what do you think about having a ball diff in the MTX-4?

You can ajust how tight it is, so instead of changing diff oil, you ajust the tighteness?

Sounds great.

Also, the Serpent shocks, the ones you can ajust the dampening, i'd like to see those too.

More even tire wear.....

I think a ball diff is only good for pro's.... it's a pain to build properly... and i think if the diff is easy to be removed (like the 710 has).. it's no pain to change the oil or even change the diff itself... (just buy more diffs and fill with different oils...)...

Yeah... Or maybe make both. And let the consumer decide. Hopefully theyll do the ball diff as an optional part.

From what I understand the mtx4 is awsome. Swagger has been testing it. It will have top load diffs, that will make changes easy. I just hope the car is still as bullet proof as the mtx3.

I am sure the 4 will be a better car than the 3, In what ways, who knows. We will all have to wait. I know I will buy one as soon as it comes out. I have already bought a new motor, pipe, and servos to go into it as soon as I get it. It will be a great day to recieve it. Unfortunatly, I will not get to drive it till I get back from deployment early in November. But, when I do get back, I will be ready. So, the wait is not too bad for me. I just get to spend a bunch of money to prepare for the release.

I will wait a few months before I decide to buy one. I will wait for many of you to post the goods and bads and keep rolling with my reliable MTX-3 until I assess all the information that many of you put out here.

Good thinking Jlock...... I'm thinking to wait 2 months longer than anybody because my MTX3 are 6 months old and I have 3 !!! Dammn......... I had crazy idea like 1 spare car and complete spare parts for racing. Incredibly MTX3 are tough and durable car. I couldn't break it so far except steering knuckle and front universals.

Anyway, My LHS said MTX4 will arrive in South East Asia at the end of 2005 like november and december...... I have to start savings now.

This was the same philosophy that I took before I bought the MTX-3 I currently run. With other possible cars to choose from and my MTX-2 was still running strong, I wanted to hear all the good and bad things people had to say about it first. The goods well outweighed the bads and I made my purchase and have been happy ever since. I still run mine, mainly bone stock, from the original black box kit for the first issue of the car. Lets see what the guinea pigs have to say before I shell out several hundred more dollars for another car.
