Pilot Shaft

Then it needs to be a 3 port - rear exhaust with slide carb.

Here is an example.

Thanks Tommy. I'll contact the company and see if I can find out more about the parts themselves. We might be missing out on some good stuff!

Thats not the same. Mid-Mugen just offer for the European Market a MTX-4 with the new parts. Itīt not a R or Prospec!

Yes it does, if your going to race. 5 port is illegal. He said "hes going to be getting into nitro touring". Sounds like hes going to be racing.

Either way its worth noting it to him because hes also wondering what crankshaft to use so I decided to make sure I gave him all the info he needed to get into nitro touring.
