I've got both also, but I think the Kyosho is actually sturdier. The plastic isn't as brittle, but at the same time is not as light.

Works awesome, but you must setup the car around it IMO. You just can't drop it in with your diff setup and expect it to work. Can't wait until someone releases a solid spool.

Yeah I saw the AIP one, but I'd rather have one solid piece. Has the Kawahara already been release stateside?

oh, you want one solid piece. the Kawahara and AIP solid axial is base on the same design, utilizing the existing gear/diff. housing. i haven't seen one solid piece yet.

since Mugen integrated the gear with the diff. housing, it is kind of hard to do a one piece solid unless you make the gear also. but looking at the neg. diff. released by Kawahara, looks like they have made their owe gear, so i bet Kawahara will come out with a solid one piece, hopefully soon.

Default Solid Axial

just want to know how many people want to use a one piece solid axial on their MTX-3. maybe we can get together and have some made.

what brake discs is a direct fit on the MTX-3?
any third party (eg Eagle Racing/ Kawahara/ 3 Racing..) vented disc for RR/ MTX-2 will fit on the 3?

Mitch,

i know, it sounds insane to read all the almost 100 pages of this thead but "if you have some time" do it.... it has a lot of useful information (well it also has some things that are not useful at al hahahaha) I am in the page 49 so far.
