if you can't get the parts BK have you tryed substituting it with v1r parts? yeah sounds weird but if you can't get the mugen stuff...

just take out the mugen hub and see if the v1r hub fits, then use the v1r cvd's...with the hubs

Paul, I think we should both go and jump the fence at Moorebank and have a look around for dogbones. Barry also lost one without knowing

I got some universals now anyway. Front was running 197mm and they still popped out!

Barry Walker would be your best bet. He mentioned he was going down to Eastern Creek this weekend.

Who won? The track isn't that bad (I was running 45s +40s...took the wrong tyres with me ) and still didn't feel that bad.

One thing I've noticed, the MTX3 seems to run softer tyres then the MTX2.

40 rears were too hard. Since nobody had a set of 37s 30mm rear I had to resort to running the softest Kyosho rear springs to get some grip on the 40 rears. Pretty funny as the car would bounce down the straight.

yes i knew that would haunt me! lol

i had never spoken to Barry until last weekend, and he seems to be a very genuine person, and seems to luv racing!!! just like the rest of us! i've had a change of heart! i'm not even going to buy spares from OS!

in the past i also remember saying... i'd never get beaten by a kyosho on the track let alone drive one! i also once said i'd never be seen refueling a mugen let alone drive one! LOL

i spoke to a "nameless" shop today that sold Mugen MTX3 kits and they have no parts! so no sale for them....
