You have to get the gears for the rear diff, and build the fornt diff.

The Kawahara conversion belt didnt last very long though. Any tips on prolong it life span?.

does mugen make a diferential for the front of the car? on of the tracks i run on is very tight and calls out for a differential.
I'm sure that Mugen makes a front diff. I would go Kawahara diff. Can the Negative diff be put in the back???? I'm not sure but I bet the Fish does. Yeah the Prospec is worth it. Hop ups that you really want are the 4mm chasis and CVD's along are worth over $100. So if you can find and afford one go for it....

so I get a the stuff to build a rear diff and a just a box for the font? not one way or anything?

I though the negative diff was for the rear...

Is it hard to change diffs in case I want to try different oils for example?


another question, are the blue prospec spring any better than what comes with the mtx3?

go to the prospec on either site and it will have a list of included option parts, the cvds run $40 a set, the chassis is $80, thats makes up the diff right there, not to mention the $80 titanium pillow balls!

when using 16/19 conversion you have to cut down front tires 3-4mm smaller than rear is this correct/ if so what do you set droop at? with stock tires your suppose to set at 1 . cutting tires 3-4mm down would definitly change this setting correct. how do you calculatediffernt tire size into this setting

You will have to re-set your front ride height to accomodate the smaller fronts and then re-set the droop.

If you use 4 mm smaller diameter tires and reset your ride height to the original, use -1 for the front droop.
