I have chosen to use the counter sunk screw with the Al washer on the underside of the engine mount this means no lateral adjustment.
I have found the Al washer lock up well and done mark the chassis.
But that does means I need to get the fly wheel shimmed spot on.
I prefer this because when set the mesh I know the engine is not floating in both directions.

Also the one piece has the engine mount screws in a slightly different position.
When using the one piece it will put the engine ~ 0.4mm to 0.5mm more to the left of the car this does help to get the gears to line up.
If using the two piece, you will need to shim out your fly wheel a bit more.
For a one piece I use 0.3mm shims
Two piece I use 0.8mm shims
This will give you much better gear mesh.

Iím fitting a Virtus.

Guys this is looking like a really good car, lets see what some club racing does for it, my prediction its going to be a much better club car. All the area the 5 had weakness the 6 has strength in spades.

It looks like Mugen has had a good hard look at the 1/10 tourer and put their best foot forward.
Any issues fitting the Virtus with the offset carb? Fuel tank clearance?

Hi mate,
i just fits.
you need to grind the face of ther throlle linkage until it is flush with the idel screw'

Take the throttle ball link off the engine.
find something the right diameter to fix it to and grind or linish the face off.
i will post a pic later.
it just fits..

You shouldn't have to do anything. If it doesnt open fully then just turn the carby a little, you shouldn't be grinding anything! Look at the photo of the car, it has a Virtus in it.

I have a Virtus in my 1/8th scale and all I did was turn the carby a little and it's perfect, I couldn't get one for my tourer but you should be just turning the carby

Exclamation A tip when building the mtx6

The screws holding the rear lower roll center are to big in diameter.

Hey John,

NO matey, can't fault the red chassis.

I was just wondering how much changed betwee 5 and 6 and seems it's quite a lot even though it doesnt look it at a glance.

I'm happy when we all have a good time racing and perform without stripping gearrs, been there and done that!

Thumbs up New mtx6 is good for weight

I was courious to see if the new car was much heavier then the 5.
So I pulled the engines out do both my cars and set them up with all the same hardware. Using my kitchen scales both cars wher almost exactly the same weight.
I use the aluminium rear brace from trackside RC on the 5 so that would add a few grams.
The 6 still has the steel balls etc. so it's a good apples for apples comparison.
So with all the extra strength added to the 6 it looks like they have kept the weight under control.
It will be interesting so see how much the aluminium ball contribute to weight saving.

What aluminum balls are you talking about?? The pivot balls in the hubs or the ones in the shock ends??
