Yes, it is quite abrasive.

In rubber class I run 10K. In mod I run 20K

The other MTX-3 racers use 30K and 50K.

I haven't tried anything else yet. Changing diff oil isn't one of my favorite things to do.

Return them back to where you got them and exchange them for another bag.
Hmmm... I don't think I have the luxury of returning them back. One was attached to a small molding runner, the other one was loose. If I return them, I'm affraid that the right parts will come back once the snow starts falling I just ordered new sets to make things right since I presently am running the MTX3 with a left rear arm from my MTX2. It didn't keep me from winning the A main last weekend but still, I would like my MTX3 to be ALL MTX3 Thanks.

Is there something being done about the Mugen parts availability issue in Canada? A few racers from Quebec and Ontario are very impressed with my MTX3s performance. Everyone seem to love the car but very few buy them because of the "issue". This is not a complaint here, it's just that there doesn't seem to be a Canadian distributor of MTX3 parts. At least I didn't find one. If it was easier for us Canadian to get Mugen parts, probably a lot more Canadians would buy Mugen cars.
If you're interested in hooking up with Canadian distributors, here's a couple you could contact.

Something like the Osaka version of the MRX3???

Planning to get a second MTX unit for only race next year like I did on the MRX3 (got it the Platinum version last week).... I expect to not hear about the MRX4 at least to the next year by this dates Those kittens are quite expensive and would hate to shell a lot of bucks in the middle of the season in a new car.

Don't know the Works version. Platinum one is the same as Osaka car without the serialized chassis no.

Borgfeldt Canada is not a Hobby store but a Canadian distributor. I'm pretty sure I got the number right. Here's their website http://www.borgfeldt.ca/default.htm They don't distribute Mugen products but maybe they would be interested to do so in the near future. Great Hobbies is a retail and mail order supplier of model related hobby supplies based in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Here's their website http://www.greathobbies.com/

Thank you for all your trouble
