Hi Mike, does this mean that the internal gears and shafts are the same as the MTX-3 for the front diff. Thanks Chris

Mike, what are the other differences between Mugen USA kit and the kit from other countries? My LHS is asking for $475 + tax.

You will only need a T0261 and T0215 to build the front spool that comes with the kit.

the mtx-3 uses a gasket also. but i don't use the gasket alone. i always glaze it with RTV black (oil and heat resistant) first. just make sure you don't use too much... no leaks!

Thats interesting that some of the kits have (US and EU) tires included. That would explain some of the price differnce. I am going to be thrashing to get my 4 together for the last few races of the TSRCAR club series. I raced there this past weekend with my prospec (first time out for the car) and it just handled so well. I really couldn't believe it. Anyway, here is my question. This track is BIG and super high bite. What motor regardless of cost would be good for big tracks and what gear would someone suggest.

Thanks

The only place the kits are really cheap are Asia. Mugen produces there kits in Asia. Europe and the U.S have allot more involved with getting there cars to there Countries (Shipping & Tax). In the U.S we (Mugen USA) only sell to shops with a store front and not to internet only stores. There overhead is higher then a shop that is only internet only, so the price for the kit is going to be higher. If you buy your kit from a internet store and you need help or have a problem with it are you going drive to the internet store for help?

"If you buy your kit from a internet store and you need help or have a problem with it are you going drive to the internet store for help?"

1) What could be a help?

2) What could be a problem?

If $475 + tax is so, I belive the guy has a mark-up approx. between $150-$200.
