I have some setups but the files are too big to attach here. PM me your email address and I can send them to anyone who wants them.

Default 301 Raceway MRX4-X

Hope this helps. This setup is a combination of several other drivers but modified for my driving style. Easy to drive, the rear end is a little on the loose side depending on traction, so I'll probably go with a little more rear toe or raise the front swaybar a little, since it has plenty of steering.

Front Lower Arm Position = short wheelbase

Hopefully others can post so that we can share the info from track to track.

Normally 69/76 but I've also run 67/74 Depends on the traction and tire wear.

Thumbs up

Is mugen planning on releasing a new car next year or is MRX4X going to be the car to carry over into the next year or two. I am interested in the MRX4X but I will wait if they are going to produce a new car for 2008

Winternats should be a bit more entertaining this year!

Copy Mike's setup and you will be as fast as him....

I don't really understand why people like to copy the setup of the top drivers other then to have a good starting point (and I guess the Mugen has a standard setup to be used as a starting point)

If you don't use the exact same body (which is not mentioned in the setup sheet) the setup might be completely wrong for your body....

Also copying a setup from a driver who drove a race like the winternats, or a WC, is not wise. The grip level on a track increases a lot if drivers run there for a few days in a row, even tractionroll is not uncommon in 1/8th then!!!!
The setup they then have to put in there car, will give you very low grip under "normal" track conditions.... but still people want to copy these setup's......

M7H - To clarify: the set-up posted in RC Car is a base-line for those racers running or that have upgraded to the MRX4X. It is my understanding this is not Mike's exact race set-up for a specific track, but a proven starting point for MRX4X racers to build from.

Question for the all knowing M7H - where would you and your Serpent avatar suggest we look to find a recent and tested set-up for the Mugen MRX4X?

If you can't provide an answer beneficial to Mugen chassis owners, I suggest you try lurking in the "Serpent chassis of the week" thread.

Best regards,

madjack
