I have the MTC1 , if you are willing to do the home work & find a setup that works for you and your track the car works you just have to put the time in and not look for the easy fix, if you do chose the MTC1 for carpet start with solid top deck.

The alu chassis is fine. But still the rest of the structure is very flexible.

Having recently switched from Xray to Mugen, I can add my 2c in here...

Simply put, the Mugen is a fresh platform, that hasn't had the years of development behind it that the others have. And that immaturity shows in how the setups are developing rapidly. It hasn't even had a full outdoor season yet!

However, in my eyes, Mugen have managed to get key points right. Shocks are great, and easy to build. Diff is smooth and leak free, and consistent over a run. Plastics are good too, stiff and strong. Durability has not been an issue for me.
There are a few areas I personally think need improvement, such as the chassis flex, but these are things that are (relatively) easy fixes.

It's not yet the complete article, but given where it is with the limited development, there is a lot of potential there. Not (yet) plug and play like a Yokomo or Xray, but if your willing to put the work in.. it will reward you.

In other words, I'm not regretting my choice at all
