I have a question for you about the carbon discs inside the wheels, what kind of functionality? And most importantly, when to use them? Obviously I'm a happy owner of Mugen MRX5
Thank you very much!

The Biggest plus is they aid in the AEro-Dynamics of the car when used on frt and rear". They are nice to have.

The stuff was made by dna of europe. I have had zero luck of finding anything about the company or where to buy there stuff....

Any one seen my home made Mugen clutch?

Default Nice clutch

We had made a few magnesium flywheels that were super lite.

We don't make steel motor mounts, but have had brass ones for awhile now. (they weigh 75grams).

We have brass battery trays and a few copper trays left for the 5 as well.

Default loose side belt

I just finished building my Mrx5 WC the side belt seems to be a little loose I have the tensioner at the tightest position Is this normal. The front and rear belts have nice tension is this normal for this kit.

Yes, its normal. He tighter you set your front belt, the looser your middle belt will be (because you are moving the middle bracket). It is not a problem.

You can run the MBL side belt (ie. tough racing) which are a much better (tighter) fit.
