You've just described someone who wants to do something just for the $$$$.
David will make it work for him no matter what... Look at JQ - he got his own car into the worlds final but we all know theres alot of driver in that moment.

1evo RRR Driver: I've owned and driven every JQ car including his new JQ buggy, mayako. The JQ cars always lacked in some area of General feel on track, the stupid high diff thickness made the car kinda grab and lunge - go lower and have no drive... there was no middle ground in diff setup and that used to annoy the hell out of Max.
While i honestly havnt had a chance to drive the Prototype, its going to be better than the black edition as gone to a more traditional diff/driveline setup, i expect it to drive more neutral and not have to drive it on throttle like the black edition and below.
But in comparision to the d819 i had where you could use any kind of theory setup and the car worked well. i believe the JQ buggys are still awhile off being on the level of HB, kyosho, mugen etc.ie atleast 5 years.

Will happily report back when i get a chance to drive my prototype

Can the people who tried the car give some inputs on how it stacks up against other cars for a happy weekend warrior?
Iím pretty sure Microracing will carry HB now since Jessica signed with HB.
Iíve never seen them run anything they donít sellÖ

Oh you mean , or what you should have said was ďJQ cars donít work FOR MEĒ cause news flash not everyone likes the HB, Mugen or Losi. Iíve seen people sale a brand new MBX8 cause it wasnít a good fit ďFOR THEMĒ

let me get this strait, your a member of Mayako, and admit to not having driven the car yet? So you have nothing to base your opinions on. Iíll admit I havenít driven mine yet, but if far better driver than me say itís good then Iím inclined to trust them and only after Iíve driven it then Iíll have my own opinion. And I find it hard to believe someone would spend the money to become a member if they donít believe in Joseph or the car. Let see your car?

i was very confused also! When he said “none of JQ cars have worked for 12yrs , so why should this one”. But then you say you have one, (Mayako) make little sense

And to say David did this just for money is a little insulting to him. If youíve been paying attention and listened to him talk about his decision, this was clearly not a money grab. I donít doubt money was an important factor, but Iím sure it wasnít the sole reason and Iím sure heís not making hundreds of thousands more than he was at HB. Heís mentioned there are other things he has in the works other than Mayako and the timing was just right for him. And to be honest, they can pay him what ever they want,
I donít care. But the fact that one of the worlds top drivers believes in this speaks volumes to me.

This approach is interesting and all, but one thing I donít understandÖ If their goal was to be different, particularly with this ďcommunityĒ approach, then I donít quite understand sponsoring drivers all of a sudden. I thought they were going to avoid that with this brand? Granted, it was also the 2nd shot heard Ďround the World of Silly Season 2021-2022. I think everyone will agree that he and Adrien abruptly leaving HB was the 1stÖ I also want to say that him additionally signing with Awesomatix to drive touring cars was a 3rd shot, lol.

if you listened to the pod cast announcing david as a driver you would of heard it was meant to happen next year but things just kind of fell into place to have it happen this year so thats why the speedy signing.

There was always a plan to have a pro driver, just not sponsoring ďanyoneĒ looking for sponsorship. But as was already said, things just fell into place earlier than planned and the chance to get David presented itself perfectly. I think all of the members were pretty excited and surprised when we found out. This is definitely going to be an exciting Silly Season for sure.

Pro driver sponsorships only. The brand need those drivers to prove the car and compete at a Worlds level. Us regular plebs wont prove much at our local club races

And the MbX8 was not a great car. The 8r will because they have gone back to narrow pivot rear c and d block.

only the pros made them good and even Maifiled, Drake ++ did go back to narrow pivot rear end. The new R has no other geometry change..

The black edition JQ with 2020 option KPI front end was a very good and fast car. T

Was anyone able to go back to the narrow rear pivot? Or was that something made just for them?

MBX6 C&D blocks. Not sure which arms they used. I have seen a few pics with what looked like MBX6 arms, and other pics that had some arms with the carbon plates which was never an option with the MBX6. Might have been Mugen prototype parts, or maybe something from an SWorkz that had a narrow pivot design.

Hello MX304,

The C&D Blocks are custom made for them. And They are using MBX6 Rear Arm.

Cheers..
