Hey Oneway, The MTX-3 is not a copy of the Yok GT4. Actually the predescessor to the MTX-3, the MTX-2 is probably alot more like the Yok GT4 than the MTX-3, but even then, all these touring cars: VoneR, GT4, MTX-2 all emulated/evolved, so to speak, from Serpent, if im not mistaken. The things you listed that you say are similar (belt tensioner, sway bar, etc.) are typical on many cars and are not an indication that it was copied. A more accurate statement would be that the MTX-3 is an evolution of the MTX-2, though that may not even be so accurate cause the MTX-3 looks totally redesigned with the layed down servo etc. etc. Plus Mugen has been making gas cars alot longer than Yokomo, so suffice it to say, you're really wrong. The MTX-3 has nothing to do with the GT4 other than that they're both 1/10th touring sedans. I.E. The Honda Accord has wheels, shocks, and an engine; so does the Ford Taurus, but I'd hardly say one copied the other.

aahha, yeah, I didnt mean to sound so heated. Sorry One Way if I came off like I was slamming you're post. I give props to both cars, but I think most would agree the MTX-3 is obviously not a copy of the GT4.

So, RRanger, if you got the car, what's the packaging like? What exactly does the car come with? How is the manual? I heard the translation from the Japanese of previous Mugen manuals was horrible, how's this one? You starting to build it yet? So many questions.... Post some pics while ur at it! Thanks Cheif!

It's a black paper box looks cool, it come with the oneway, rear diff, new shoes type 2speed gear, new brake disk like the one in MRX, small centex, two rear bulkhead for changing the sus. pin position,and all other stuffs what you saw the photos before, but everything is new design except the front bumper, it's totally a new car from head to toe.

A friend of mi take away my digi cam haven't return , so I can't post the picture now, and yes I am starting to build it .

Don't worry about the manual, pictures tell everything.

I haven't said that I get the car from mugenusa.

Is that with or without the engine? Ace Hardware Hobbies has them listed for $280 w/o engine, $499 with engine.
