Moon, ever heard of the '3 Racing Brand'. They seem to have alot of cool goodies for the MTX3. This looks intresting, 0mm offset universals for front/rear....

Can someone tell me whats the difference between the rear and front Mugen universals? i don't know why the universals would have a front and rear(2 diff. parts number) when the dog bones are for both front and rear(1 part number for fr and rr). im asking because we ran out of the front universals so i got the rear ones and put them up front, i dont know if this is good or not.

Where do you place those o-rings that are in the universal package?

We are going to carry 3 racing products pretty soon. RD Logics are also coming out with goodies for the mtx-3 at the end of this month, you can check it out at www.rdlogics.com

they are the same !!

the front CVD pack comes with o-rings for the front oneway outdrive.

you can use the rear CVD pack for front but you need to source your own 0-ring for the front outdrive.
