Ya they've held up well. Especially the SKyline Cvds. They're not bent just worn and I'm just wondering if that's normal and if running them a bit worn could hinder performance in any way (maybe issues with the smoothness of acceleration) After taking some time thinking about it and analyzing it, I don't really see much of a problem after all

The Mugen Team guys told me to put Super Lube in the outdrives to prevent the routing out of the outdrives. Seems to have stopped that process on my car.

What is the difference between using a one way or a front diff. ? Which one works better with the mtx4 on a tight track? How does each make the mtx4 handle?

The new steering knuckles are a replacement for the original. The part that the steerling linkage connects to the steering knuckle is lowered about 4mm.

Smoothes out the steering from those that I've talked to. I was hoping to run this past Sunday, but weather didn't allow for that.

I recently ordered three MTX3 rear bulkheads from Mugen Direct two weeks ago. Do they really ship to overseas ? ( eg. Jakarta, Indonesia ? ) I only get order confirmation in my inbox, but I haven't receive the package yet nor any further e-mail(s) from Mugen Direct.

Anyone have shopping experience with Mugen Direct ?

Has anyone tried the Tit. pivot balls by 3Racing? If so, how did they hold up? $25 vs. the $100 from Mugen is the reason I ask!!
