Yes, but I would use the rear MTX3 universals on the front of the MTX4.

It will fit, but your gearing will be way off as they can't use the same size pinions. They also use different bearings and one other piece is different. Like I said, if you use all the MTX4 parts (the flywheel, and clutch stuff is the same) it will fit, but your car will be way undergeared.

Hey, I remember reading on a different top plate some guy made to reposition the servo/gast tank in the MTX-3.... is he making them for others too? Or is it not worth it so he didn't...

Raced the car for the first time this weekend. Dident get any time to practice(rained). Raced a old Sirio(older than evo 2).
The parts supply for mugen in Norway is crapy so i had to raced two left uprights, thus right turns were hard to get right.
But there is potetntials here. Finiehed second, and there were rrr's in the race
Will put the bibel asside to night and start reading these pages instead

hi..i'm still suffering the lack of "punch" in the starting...after changin the clutch shoes the difference is to little to notice...after doing checking to all dept i am suspecting the clutch bell ( a fren of mine had the same problem,after changin the clutch bell it was back to normal ) it seems the place in the bell where the bearing sits in has "worn out" which means a little free play/gap from its original condition...

has anyone encountered such exp., thanks .. i'll be trying my fren clutch bell first to see if it really works...

It's either the clutch shoe is still new and need sometime to match the contour of the bell, OR inside surface of the bell is glazed, OR you need to reduce the front shims ( too many will bog down the engine. Assuming you have set the clutch spring correctly ). OR, you could change to yellow clutch shoe for more punch.
