Yes, but why? It's good when the pavement is wet i.e. after raining. I used them on my Impulse before. No fun, though.

Better yet, Manticore, can you weigh the Kawahara's Solid Adaptor for kevink2 please?
Now this is getting interesting!

Kawahara did already release the Solid Axle adapter out. They even have the "Racing conversion" package if you're interested. Manticore should be able to tell us how much that thing cost. But, my educated guess it will cost somewhere between $5-$10.

By now, the Kawahara Neg. Diff should be released. I don't know if Manticore gets a hold of it yet, but I'm going to get one for myself pretty soon.

the Kawahara solid axle adaptor has listed price of YEN1,200. you should have an idea on how much it cost over there.

I am not interested at the negative diff anymore but if mugen has something like kyosho LSD would be great.

Default MTX3 Experts......

I'm planning on getting this car soon, like many others, and need to know a few tidbits:

Are the majority of you running the FAST tires that are made for the MTX3 or getting other brands and using the spacer for zero offset wheels? What needs adjusting(track width made wider?) or just adding a spacer will do? How do the Nitro Shoes(2 degree offset) fit and do you guys like these tires?

When using the 4mm Mugen chassis, are there any fitment problems when using the alumin deck braces or any other pieces?

Universals: Are the 3 Racing/RD Logics pieces just as good as the Mugen's? They are almost 2 times cheaper, just wondering if the, "you get what you pay for" statement holds true for these products?

Centax: Anyone running the Red shoe? Who makes them and where to get them? How about the Super Hard spring?

Droop: I noticed on the setup sheets some racers go 1 front and 8 rear? Are you using standard droop guages to set these up? 8 seems kinda high.

I have more questions, but can't think of them right now. Planning on putting the NTC3 on hiatus for now and getting a Moo-gen.

Thanks fellas.

1200 Japanese Yen is about $10 US according to my currency converter. That can't be right, is there a different "Yen"?

Bolisario--
I run either the FAST or Super G tires. The Super G 0 offset (which I think is actaully 1mm offset) fits the front fine, but won't fit the rear. You have to use the 2mm offset on the rear.

I believe someone had an issue with an aluminum deck mount not fitting correctly on the Mugen 4mm chassis. I don't remember which brand the mount was, but it was easily resolved with a grinding from a dremel. Nothing major.

There have been some breakage issues with the "off brand" universals. I run the Mugen universals & no problem so far.

I run the red shoe with the hard spring. The red shoe seems to give better grip than the Mugen gray shoe, but doesn't wear out as fast. I don't think you need the super hard spring. I doubt any .12 engines will really benefit from that hard of a spring. The red shoe is Racer's Choice (it's the same as the Delta shoe), and is available through Speedline Racing www.speedline-rc.com (as are all your Mugen parts). The website is extremely old, but just get the number and give Mike a call. He'll set you up.

I run 1 & 6 droop...seems to work better for me.

Good luck...you will not be disappointed with this car!!!!!!!

I loved the neg diff in my MTX-2!!!! So I was thinking about getting one for the MTX-3, but running either 30,000 or 50,000 weight oil in the rear seems to be doing just fine for now. I haven't tried the solid yet.
