They have made a tray to fit the servo's, receiver and transponder on, just like offroad, so with the removing of a couple of screws you are able to take out all the electronics. Could be very useful if you have to switch all the electronics in case of rain, no more dedicated radiotray just the bracket.
Also to me it looks like the entire radiotray has been lowered, which is always a good thing.
But I agree I'd rather put a low-profile servo in the car and achieve the same, then all the added links a laydown servo brings.

I only remember the 3 as a BRICKPOOPHOUSE. My kit came from the third shipment to the U.S.A. though?
I'm kinda suprized nobody is freaking out/bashing the laydown throttle servo...
AZZ KICKIN MUGEN SEIKI's
Laydown servo might also be optional in placement most other brands come with both mounts for either set up. I would think it will be a choice that's great to have. Front bumper is almost like the M3 bumper with cut outs.
Maybe Mikey will have his for the Winternats that will be awesome

Assuming this car is faster than the previous car. Mike will be breaking track records around the country this year...

I just hope the clutch system is as good as the MRX4-X...

The front and rear arms look inter changeable from left to right.

Ball raced rear anti-roll bar.

The only part that I don't like was body clips to hold the fuel tank.


Over all it looks good. I can't wait. All I need now is a new track.
