The car looks good!!
I especially like that they have moved the engine mounts back and away from the flywheel slot this should stop the chassis from warping through the centre.
I know now what I want for Xmas

I'm not sure it is. The lower rear suspension pivots are much wider than before. The space between the diff case and the rear arm might be making it look small but the shock towers appear to mount in roughly the same spots on the case. MBX 6 below.

What I really like to read is something like 'new tougher yet flexible plastics for the arms'...but then again they make a lot of money selling parts. Anyways, I'm positive it will be on my shopping cart.

Softer flexible plastic will slop out more. I Think if mugen thought the arms were a issue, they would make a change. The front arms do look to have some changes, more beefy I might add.

Ill be sure to post a list of parts that can be used from the X6 to the X7 (there is a few but not as many as most would think). Plastic looks to be the same, which I feel is the best plastic material I have used (I ran the X6 all year and never broke anything plastic, knock on wood) lol. I have pics of my car with setup sheet and all that stuff. The car may be here sooner than expected!

Default Nice!!

Car looks great as usual!! Mugen is a top notch company !! When Tyler drove for them, they were great to us. I am with Chad on the plastics. Tyler was 10 when he started racing and wrecked hard and alot!! Car and truggy took it!! The arms that he broke, would have broke on any car or truck. He cracked a couple upper arms on buggy and broke 3 lower fronts on truggy in 2 years of racing. I did see guys break arm after arm too. So, if they are even stronger now, great too.

Wish nothing but the best to Mugen and all their drivers!!!

Its the same with everything in life...

This will not make your driving unsuck if you suck already.

You will however have nerd lust over your pit area for a while. The question is if 300 (give or take) is worth it to you.

For me it is.
