novarossi that's the mtx-2. The mtx-3 will be packaged with the MR-12. You just were looking at the in-house stock # they were using for the car, which is why the last one said mtx-3.

I can garantuee you from my experience with ANY Mugen product I've owned so far that it will live up to it's reputation (because I don't see any hype yet) much better than for example the NTC3.

what are you guys talking about - 439 for this car with engine is a great price. That's around 270ish for the car which is a steal for what all is coming on this car. The mtx-2 pro went for 480 with mt12 engine, and a yokomo gt4R and the kyosho V1rr are more than 270. The el cheapo ntc3 is at the least 240. The mtx3 car seems fairly priced to me.

i mean 289 for a MTX-3 without engine is too low.... how can they sell at a lower price here than in Japan? haha....


499 with engine is reasonable though....

Guys, think!

Car with engine, header and pipe = $499

Engine $170
Header $15
Pipe $50
----------------
=$ 235

Car w/o engine pipe and header = $499 - $235 = $264


So, if you need an engine and exhaust, the first kit is a slightly better deal, but if you are set on these items, $289 make it a much easier desicion to get the new car.


Patelladragger, we were discussing Ace Hobbies prices, not the Japanese prices.
