Not shure I like the upper outer link on the rear. But it looks good. Let us know how it runs,tunes and lasts.

There is already a thread about the car, and since very very few people run this car I think we should choose the most popular one to write on.

It has excellent quality plastic and aluminum parts and it is very light - mine with tires and everything on weights 3305gr. It has amazing (at least) steering and acceleration is impressive but it is quite unstable or just demanding in driving - in order to be honest I only drove my car once with the standard setup, which is not very popular, so I will try more setups and see how it works.

Mugen has had this same design for a few generations now, it allows for better travel without the wheel striking the link. Works very well and I have never seen one break.

Does anybody else thing the front body mount is strangely very tall?

Yes, no braces, but the chassis is 4mm and (it looks) wider than other current cars - plus ~290gr!
I think there is an optonal front (and rear?) brace but I have not see anyone using it...perhaps in very (?) high bite tracks?
