Nice one.... Sorry i haven't got back to the replies, been a bit busy. Anyhow i find the Jap rubber is far and away the best. Not to say they are as good for somebody else. I find the wear rate much better and they seem more consistent. In high grip however, i find they can become quite a handfull simply because they do generate so much grip. The other thing is you would usually use corresponding compounds on the front and rear of the car. Just nice because the overdrive doesn't get all screwed up. If you haven't already tried Active, Zac Etc. then i suggest you get on the phone and give them a go. The week we all started using Jap rubber track records got broken.

P.S there were a lot of people on GRP's at the Aussie titles a couple of weeks ago, and they got around pretty good. The Moral of the story is they have to suit you to!

Can anyone tell me if the rear drive is a solid axle or a diff and can you fit a rear and front diff in it???

Judging on the picture of the MTX3, I can't figure out the location of the RX Batt. It seems to me that with the steering servo flat down, the only place to have the RX Batt installed is between the RX & fuel tank.............

It would be unbelievably foolish if Mugen did not at least offer diffs as a hop up, but I think we will see different cars with different drivetrain layouts like the MTX2.

I guess what he meant is the regular MTX2 with diffs and the prospec with the front one-way.

Doc J: The battery is located in the bottom center of the chassis, just like the trinity gas car. I also saw the car (Robbie Collins Mugen Driver)run yesterday at Crystal Park. The looks pretty good, runs flat, has good corner speed and transition well in the "S" secton of the track!

Since you've actually seen one, can you tell me how many parts are interchangeable with the MTX2?
