First of all excuses for my english which is not very good! I`m posting from spain. I've been reading this phorum quite a long time ago and I decided to start writing also
I`m mugen team driver in Spain, I started racing mugen chasis in 2003, but since 1989 have been racing bmt, picco (genesis,rs600, compact,integra), serpent (vector98, vector 2000). Switched to mugen with mrx3 works in 2003, and in 2005 became mugen team driver with mrx4, and I must say it´s the best chasis i`ve had in 20 years of 1:8th racing.
I enjoy reading your posts about the mrx4 and mrx4-R and would like also to start posting about technical matters regarding the chasis , asking and answering info in order to feedback the most info for everybody.
Here the tracks are completely different to the states tracks. I've been in the winternats 04 just to see and pit and like a lot the good feeling at the track and the pits. You really know how to have fun racing! Although I prefer European tracks I have to admit the feeling, the friendship and the show its much much better in usa.
I´m looking forward to attend the winters again, not in 07 because this season is very busy here as I have European Championship 2.000 miles from home by car this summer and the national champ in my country is 4 races, plus a couple of regional races it too much.
In 04winternats I met Ron a very nice guy and great driver form usa at the nats, he raced mugen in 04, afterwards switched to kyosho and came back to mugen as team driver, I suppose some would know him. Also met Ritchey, Rasheed, Gary, Chris from NY (Brooklyn hobbies) and have nice remember of all them.
Maybe this is not the most suitable post to write this but as its about mrx4 I thought to introduce myself here in this post would be OK, sorry for the long speech!
I enclose some photos of my 06 season with MRX4-R
Kindest regards form Spain.
