Wow, what a car.
Robert Pietsch, sure, he is three tens of a second faster per Round, but he is World´s fastest TQ!
What brings the new car vor Hobby-Racers?
An expensive Change, and the feeling, to be faster. But, will Hobby-Driver be faster?
I think not, i think, there is an Edam for the half Price a good car...

Mugen is a racing company so it's safe to assume the new car is better + mugen has a history of holding off on new models not unless there is a significant improvement...
MRX4 is a whole lot better than the 3 so I'm guessing the new car will also have a noticable improvement over the 4....

An Adam might be half the price, but it’s half the quality of a Mugen.

The new MRX5 may only be a little faster then the 4, but if it is an easy car to drive at a faster pace, then that is fine by me. Until we get our hands on the MRX5, we will have to wait a few months.

Keep thinking.....

Well, the same designer did create the Velox, also based on the MRX4 and that car is still under construction and not as fast as they want it to be.

HUH, yeah and that same designer split and returned home to mother Mugen. There must be some reason? Next time we saw this same designer he was at the worlds driving a working dare I say prototype and the result was what?
Copies are never as good as the original.
It is a Mugen not anything else...focus

No car is ever as fast as you want it to be, but I am very happy with the car.
