Hopefully there will be other places with a lower cost... For that price there are many other options that don't have a "plain" car.

$430 is too expansive consider it is 1/10th scale and yet having option parts
Is it teh real price or they just jack it up for profit

MTX3 straight from the box without any options is already perfect. I have mine putting on everything Kawahara, waste a lot of money, used so long, i can only tell the neg diff which will give different handling. Other than that I regret to pay for the options, except the Genuine front CVT.
Well, i may suggest, just try out the original no no option MTX4 first. Options, most of the time, cosmetic more than performance.

You still need options parts like CVDs front and rear. And aluminum hexes. That alone will be $75 [If the CVDs are $32 like the MTX-3 ones]. Do the math... thats more than $500 for a car. Hopefully this is just a jacked up price and not a real one.

I don't know where you are located, but if you are here in the states, don't get worked up until Mugen USA releases the price.

My LHS give me $350 - $360 right away without question ask. I said keep one for me, so I wait until 3rd week of October.

Just walk away if your LHS jack up the price. LHS need early adopter customers to attract other customers.

Car breaker : I submit novarossi LL5 with Novarossi pipe.

I will probably get the similar price like you for MTX-4, but LL5 or LL3 with nova pipe is probably beyond my budget (US 320).
my outlaw choice is 18TZ(P) with whatever pipe like RD logics

I think US price will be around $470.00? Maybe I should say between $450.00 & $500.00. Do I think it is a good price, absolutely not.
