The instructions on the MTX-2 and MRX-3 are not the greatest, but pictures tell a thousand words

Racing4Evo, where is exactly your LHS that has the "$150" NTC3's?

BTW, will the standard $290 MTX-3 still get the goodies like a Centax? Equipped with front and rear gear diffs? (It will be my rubber tire touring car. Foams and front one way only on my GT4R)

Thanks in advance!

Looks like there is a new GRP rim/tyre come out for the MTX-3. Haven't seen this style of GRP rim before.

Plastic wheel hubs

I got mine together and I'm not even a native English speaker.

Wait a minute, maybe that's the reason ...

LOL! You gus are just dying to know where to get these NTC3s huh? It is Busy Bee Hobbies in San Bernardino, CA. They don't do mail order but if you guys want one I can get one for you for $220, that includes shipping and the tax I have to pay. It is a really small hobby shop with outrageously high prices on all but a few things. I am not sure if they have anymore though.

does anybody know wether the weel hubs are standard or not? I hate GRP's, and the last thing i would want is a car that's restricted to them. And like Novarossi said, ooooh plastic drive hex's (shudder)...... I wonder if the MTX2 hex's would fit?

Racing4Evo- $70 for shipping and tax?? Either your out to rip people off, or the more likely possibility that your making the whole thing up...

so, if you hate GRP's which are about 99% of all available foams worldwide, what are you using?

Jaco, BSR, Speedmind?
These are the only three brands I can come up with, and they are still all using the same rubber as GRP.

What? Am I doing this as a favor to any joe that comes my way? I'll leave you to decide if I am a ripoff. besides, I have to pay the sales tax. Shipping is to anywhere in the continental US...and 2-3 day delivery! Sound like a ripoff now?

are you certain grp is 99% of all rubber used? I find it hard to believe jaco nitro shoes are grp since they feel totally different than ellegi's, fast tires, mugen, treadz, etc. The yokomo rubber feels very different, the kawahara rubber feels different, the CRC rubber feels different - you're saying all those are grp?

no, I'm saying they all use the same rubber.

There are only two kinds if foam, European and Japanese, and there are only a few company who produce these foam sheets.

All tire manufacturers are buying their foam from those few suppliers.

Think Sanyo, Panasonic , GP...
