You must show us the pix eg. chassis number, the box. Then you are officially A-2

Almost like a jet coz i got to meet my date!!

Anyways.. i built the front part. The CVDs and the metal hex nuts are from the MTX-3. The front Ti shaft of the 3 is longer then the one on the 4 (Bummer! ) The Ti steering rods are from the 3 too..

The other thing to note would be the pulleys. Mugen gave 2 sets of front pulleys. Seems that we are suppose to use the 24t side pulley...

Whoaa ..... this is not nice. Mtx4 front arms look shorter too.

From your observation what mtx3 parts that can be transfer to 4 ?
universals dog bones ?
belts ?
pulley set ?
spur gears ?
pinion gears ?
front and rear uprights ?
etc.

I din really compare the arms.. but yes i cant use the MTX3 's front ti shaft on the MTX4 coz its longer..

so far.. the front universals, the steering rods, the alu hex wheel nut.

The whole train is different from the 3.. so i guess we cant use them unless some guys like to try them..

I will post more when i am done.

Universals will transfer, belts are different, spurs are the same, pinions are different, front uprights are the same, but the rears are different.

Most important question for me would be. Does the 3's differential fit in the 4? No point for me in getting the car till they release a differential for the car.
