As for the look, you can't really tell, since they come from the same factory, just different packaging material.

Only get what you need, don't dress it up too much like mines. I don't know what to call my cars now, Mugen MTX-3 PRO PRO PRO PRO PRO... maybe
gpm, is that a brand? whats imho?

yeah im trying to find the hop ups that will give me the performance, they seem to be the most $$$ such as the lightweight shafts.

POS=Prince of Straight-away...

That reminds me to change the Front Belt from MRX-3 back to MTX-3 one.

Don't know about others, but the MRX-3 one fits on the pulleys so well that it binds the whole front tranny.

save the money for needed things. Enjoy driving the car and appreciate what the Mugen has to offer. Get the thrill of seeing the car runs and a great sense of smell on the Nitro Fuel....

ahhh... 30% nitro...

In a race event, they even use 40%

30% is pretty common and widely used here at our track.
