In general, the Caster cars were based on the Mugen... starting 3-4 years ago, and some parts have been updated like the 5 and 5r. BUT... Caster has small things that are different and we have "86'd" a couple of parts that were made to be like the 5r because they don't work as well on the Caster car. (nitro)
New changes are in the works for Caster and it has nothing to do with what Mugen is doing... and small things are being tweaked and improved whenever possible.
One of the cool things about the car is that you can get a full upgrade to a C-hub front end VERY cheap, if that's what you like. A future version may well come with the C-hub as standard.
Doc's car was dialed. With out the gremlins he had a fantastic run going. I think you need holes in the body or a fan. I had both and was at 127 all day. Any way for those of you waiting this car it will be worth it.
Thanks Jenkins... I agree that I should have at least put some holes in the body, and a fan would have been a wise choice in hindsight. I guess I was torture testing the poor MM.
btw, Jenkins 8ight was running good too.
