Don't tell me that they are going to be an option.
Do you need them to go faster?

Well it look like a key stroke removed them to me. Are you going to be giving a set to everyone that buys a kit?

Wrong about the plastic stuff only. Bearing and screws are done too.

And more....

Any mechanical grip is better then horsepower, but what would I know? I don't waste my time on swapping engine internals for that extra power that I can't handle.

a few $$$ on c/f plates or hundreds of $$$ playing with engine. Let me think now, what would the average driver buy first???????

Boz, LMAO. The ti screw kit is not done yet. That plate is small and the boards over here are very strong. Maybe we will see them as an option, you know like the carbon front body mount that EVERYONE runs...

From what i was told in 1/8 JMRCA Championship 3 weeks ago, the 5 was having too much rear grid. Those who had the 5 to race didn't perform well due to that. Some were even saying the 5 is not better than the 4.
But we may find out after the car is out.

and the flywheel on 5 seems to be smaller than 4 too.

I'm amazed at the amount of weights that the drivers are already placing in the chassis. It must be a light chassis straight out of the box.

If it's like the Shepherd, it will need a freakin ton of weight.

These guys are running lightweigt bodies and lightweight rims which can save up to 100 gram of weight.

If your not already sitting on a pile of money with MRX-5 written on the money clip, you better start saving. Time is drawing near. Jimmy not sure how much test time we will have, gonna be a little tight...
