Good question ... I think that you can buy them in Paris ( that depends or you live lol, is necessary to see with the carriage costs ).

En tout cas ce sont de très belles pièces.

In any case they are very beautiful parts

Are you from Strasbourg? On the border of Germany? I've been there once and it is such a pretty town--is there a RC track in Strasbourg?

Many of us use 30K diff oil. If you need more ON POWER cornering force, then go thicker.

BTW I mixed my diff oil with Tamiya Ceramic Grease like 80:20 for long wear.

I now have the OPTIONAL 384t Side Belt for the Mugen MTX-4 available. This belt is shorter than the stock.
  • Rubber Construction
  • Kevlar Reinforced for strength
  • 5mm wide (wider than stock which is 4mm) for durability
  • Can be tensioned to safely clear the manifold
  • Weight is the same as the stock belt which is 4 grams

Here's a picture of the optional belt and the stock side by side:


The next pictures are for the stock and optional belt comparison:



This is the picture to show the belt tensioned down to clear the manifold:


As for the weight comparison, the first pic is the stock and the second is the optional 384t:




If interested, please PM me for more info.

Thanks,
JO

oh no i won't forget your discount. you know that discount deal... i used to be able to apply it when sending the invoice. but now they changed the invoicing process and won't let me do it anymore. but then again, it was a little more than a year the last time i sold belts for the mtx-3.

Here are the obvious pros and cons.

The pros are:
Great handling
Mugen durability
Great parts availability.
Plenty of options

Cons:
If you have one, you will lose your friends because you will be blowing their doors off!!

I would say if this car has any downside it is the fact it is not a budget kit. I really think this is the best 200mm sedan out right now and you get what you pay for.



As I said above, when you buy a Mugen you not only get the kit but you get the tremendous support system that they have built. There is great interntet support on this board with myself as well as many privateers. In the event that you still need more help, or you just don't trust us we have two of the best nitro drivers there are working right at Mugen USA (Robbie Collins and Mike Swauger). Go get your MTX 4 and see what I am talking about.

I would like to say i think the best car out now is a kyosho but i got to say i agree that the MTX4 could be the best tourer out at the momment.

thanks for the info, i knew it was gonna be a number one car but i have only had my x3 for to years and was trying to justify spending another 400 so soon. so if a pro driver ran the x3 and an x4 on the same track and conditions the 4 would show better numbers?
