Default Mugen MTC2

Finally out, no link to Mugen EU yet, but shut up and take my money... Great Job Robert!

New Features
Transmission:
– Centre drive layout and motor position makes the MTC2 more stable and has a more balanced feeling on the track.
– New rear differential without shims between 18T and diff case has smoother diff action and more consistent handling.
– New lightweight front spool and Centre pulley assembly.
– New inner drive ratio 1.9

Suspension:
– New extra long carbon lower arms with new pivot inserts to eliminate slop.
– Lightweight lower shock and anti roll bar mount with adjustable ARB links.
– Easy caster and camber adjustment on upper arms.
– Low Centre of Gravity shock mounting position.
– New shock design provides maximum range of spring pre-tension adjustment and easy assembly.
– New shock towers provide finer adjustment of shock position and offer the possibility to keep the front bulkhead unconnected.
– Low Centre of Gravity anti roll bar mounting position.
– Adjustable body height stoppers mounted to the front uprights prevent the body from touching the tires when suspension is fully compressed.

Steering:
– New zero slop steering system.

Chassis/Upperdeck:
– New curved main chassis design provides a more consistent touching with the track surface.
– Additional weight distribution hole provide easy adjustment not only for left to right balance, but also for front and rear weight distribution.
– Multiple flex options.
– 1 pc. upper deck included and 2pc. upper deck available as an option.
– Cooling fan mount included.
– Aluminium or Carbon Fibre chassis material options for the MTC2 kit.

Battery mount:
New tapeless battery mount secures the battery and decreases the chance of chassis tweak for more consistent handling.

Good to see something original, especially the shock towers. It's clear a lot of thought was put into this car.

... to be honest they took a page out of Corallys book (HMX) But I agree the direction they took with this is awesome, and well thought-out.

The upper suspension, with its mounts to the bulkhead looks very awesomatix, recently I made such mounts...




But to me most suprising is going back to pivot ball steer system while that dit not work in the MTC1 and finally C-hubs were introduced as all 1/10 tourer cars are using.
Also interesting to see the variable toe-in system on the rear, not as an option as with many other brands. Yes, with the right position of the ball link it will stay steady but still supprising to see.....

I think the AMX is going to be the new layout standard, ala what happened with Tamiya, XRAY & Yokomo....

... they are trying a page out of Infinity and AE's book (when the respective parties cloned the MRX5 & MBX-7)

This car has been in development for a looonnnngggg time. Getting information about it was tough, I spoke to factory drivers and the feedback was very good. Robert Pietsch did a great job of taking inspiration from many other cars but copying none of them. I appreciate what little information I could get and I am not disappointed!!

Hopefully RC Market negotiates a good deal because this is not a cheap car
