Interesting!! Like the MBX-6 series, the MTX-5 joins their list of shortest run chassis vehicles (usually 4-7 years before they change designs). I wonder if they addressed the 2-speed gear stripping/chassis flex issues that have plagued the MTX-4 and somewhat the MTX-5.

Hmm brake from the back to the 2speed axle i see. Not sure it has to do with the stripping gears problem before. Generally i don't see any big differences, do you guys ?

Quoted from ENS fb:


Electric touring car ace Ronald Volker has just announced he is to contest next weekend's ENS encounter in Hockenheim. The Yokomo driver will race the Mugen MTX6 Prototype of Robert Pietsch who is returning the favour of Volker hooking him up with a BD7 for Round 4 of the ETS in Mattsee, Austria, last month. Ronald will have former 200mm European B Champion Freddy Sudhoff as his mechanic for the event and seems to be taking the outing serious as he has ordered himself a 'pit to driver' headset having noticed it did John Ermen no harm in Aigen where the Dutch driver took victory in the 1:8 class.

I dont think it will be a mtx6 if it was the car would be a complete new design not just changing the brakes to the 2 speed shaft

The brake disk is now placed back to the two speed shaft vs the MTX5 rear diff....

I was told reservation is accepted. From my decade experience, it usually launches the new car end of Sept.

Pre order reservation is accepted in Japan. From all previous models, they usually launch end of Sept.

They had to update the car because of the design mistake with the braking system on the MTX-5.
Always liked the MTX-5, now with a proper braking system the MTX-6 becomes really interesting.

Personally, If the MTX-6 is nothing more than a MTX-5 corrected for the 2nd gear stripping, I would be more than satisfied. Minus the gear stripping—the MTX-5 is a champion!

Hello guys,

The MTX-6 becomes very very interesting if the stripping gear problem is resolved.
Questions for you, guys :
You said "mistake with the current MTX-5 braking system", can you tell us the weak points of the current system ?
Why the braking system on the 2 speed axle will resolve the stripping gear problem ?
Please, your explanations are welcome. Thanks in advance.

See you.

If this photo by Mugen from RC Magazine July's edition in Japan was fake for MTX6, then no news from other source will be correct.
