you may also try www.rakuseimodel.co.jp, they have an email contact [email protected]
these shops are located mostly in akihabara, where very famous in buying electronics stuff in tokyo. they are quite well in scale and set up.
or there is a hk's called rcmodel.com.hk
remember, these are FOR INFO only.
Man you must surf the net alot what type of search engine are you using?

yeah, that is the exact same question about stopping me buying a MUGEN for the first time.....can MTX4 use regular offset foam (0 degree) instead of those more expensive Ellegi or mugen foams...? Someone already mentioned MTX3 need to dial the pillow balls out to offset the "offset"....does MTX4 took care of that design..?

They do/did offer 2 deg offset. I still have some. Either way I ended up having to use the 0 offset to get the car to pass tech.

Offestis measured in "mm", unless you have a warped wheel, then you can have degrees.

i don't use any offset tires. all i use is zero for my mtx-3 and no problem at all. i always set the car width around 198 to 199 just to be safe from tech. the threaded part of the pillow ball is pretty long. so you may pull it out to make the car wider and it will still be safe and the car will still be a tank (durable). and besides, you won't be legal anyways if you pull it too much as your car will be very wide.

yeah it's not that big of deal. because i've tried both zero and the offset fast tires. as long as you set the car to the same width then you'll be ok.

I got around the offset problem by using 28mm tires of certain brands when their 30mm did not work. Many of the tire companies make 28mm for the electric carpet scene, so, if I couldn't find the offset in 30mm that worked, I went with their 28mm and rolled with it.

That is a bummer... Looks like the same rims on the CAD drawings. So I went ahead and restock... I have 200 pairs of the 2mm offset sitting at home now!

Who is going to build MTX4 and post some photos FIRST in this forum ? The race still on except anyone who live in Japan, especially neighborhood in Chiba !!!

I suspect somebody from America is going to build and post it here first.

My LHS in Jakarta, Indonesia have ordered 8 units from Japan, but I don't know when it is coming exactly. LHS owner said October.

as you say not such a big deal but just wondering will the pillow balls screw in enough to get 200mm on the rear so we can still use our 2mm offset wheels,especially since the rear arms are so much longer than the mtx-3
