My local shop is currently taking deposits on them (run by the chap who is the top works driver over here...). I think the current release date is sometime around Christmas...

Inferno, sorry, can't find the link. Too many Mugen threads and too many replies to search through.

Kind of sucks for me because I just bought my XR 4 months ago! Oh well, I don't plan to replace my XR soon. I still think its very capable once you work out the problems.

I got mine two months ago and find it to be excellent against even the Kanai 2.I have been right there with this buggy tho I would like to know how to stop blowing clutch bearings.I went from the white shoes to the aluminum and still they blow.I fixxed the shock problem by getting the big bores.Now I need to find the right set up for bumpy medium grip tracks with tight turns.

I heard there's really no way around it. I may try some Boca bearings since I've heard they're the best.

Best tip I know is that most of the XR guys at my track just maintain their clutch bearings more often by flushing them out and relubing them after a day of running. Seems to work for them but slightly more of a hassle.

What engine are you running? If you have a particularly powerful engine then you are just going to have to put up with it.

I run the RB Worlds S7 and I figure I can find a way to stop them from going.It could be a matter of to hard a clutch spring.

It's all in the shimming of the bell. To tight and they bind, to loose and they move to much and eat up the bearing from moving back and forth.

The C5 is insane!!!

I've tried one in the Crono, it's like going into warp speed when you accelerate!!!

I thought my Picco was quick...
