Yes, they do. Don't know about quality differences.

I don't know about the quality difference but I would rather get the factory ti pivot balls.

The Kfactory is not bad on the Kyoshos, strongest of aftermarket Ti PBs that I've had experience with. Still bent a couple of them about 4yrs ago. BUT even though Mugen uses smaller diameter PB's, their Option Ti PB's are the strongest. You get what you pay for.

Absolutely. + it's centrally located for even tire wear and handling. I know the guy who originally made the brass ones for the team last year had a bunch for sale on Ebay. But I haven't checked lately.

Call for all the latest items. I don't think they update their site very often, but they always have new items anounced if you call.

I'm not sure about K factory, but the mugen mtx-3 ti Pb's fit the MTX-4. So i would believe the K-factory ti Pb's should fit the MTX-4.

I've been running the mugen Ti-Pb's for about 1 year and I've yet to either bend one or break one. I'm curently using The Mtx-3 pro-spec Pb's on my Mtx-4. Best in the business

OOps, by factory i meant Mugen factory parts not K factory. I trully don't know the difference between the two since I've only owned the mugen ti and haven't damaged one even after a bad crash.

Hmm, that would explain why they are selling them so cheap. And, they are on sale again. I got mine from them. Best price anywhere.

Knack Racing in Japan makes specialty parts for the MTX-4 and other 1/10th touring cars. Some of it looks pretty interesting. Anybody heard of these guys or try any of their parts?

Web Site (Sorry, it's all in Japanese!):

Could be, because in Spain they are allready offering a MTX4 World Champioship Edition with a free Ninja hat signed by K Fukuda at 299 Euros.

According to the ad The car has new steering blocks, new rear shock tower, and aluminum wheel hex's.

Look here

Mugen Seiki says they dont even have a prototype yet. Its still in the "developing stages." Word from mugen there is a show in about a month and they hope to possibly have a prototype or something to show by then but most likely this car wont show up for another good 3 months or most likely more.

But it is "in the process" and I personally think maybe 6 months we could see something , maybe earlier , maybe later. Theyve got to mass produce the parts so I think that would take a little after they get the car prototype ready then of course a few months of testing beforehand. So Id say 6 months or more. The price drop is just to keep it competitive and to probably move stock of the current model to prepare for the new one.

Also from the sounds of it , this car might be more than a few option parts. Could entail some different parts or thinking alltogether. That would be nice , but thats just my thoughts due to what I was told. Normally a new car if its just option parts is pretty ready available. Sounds like this is on the drawing board so hopefully something fresh comes out.
