Mugen has never released an all new car that wasn't a vast improvement on its predecessor. This statement alone gives me a lot of confidence that they were fully aware of the areas that needed to be addressed:
"Whilst on first glance there might not appear to be too many changes, we remind our readers Mugen are one of the very few out and out racing companies, with Ready-to-Runs or sport versions nowhere to be found, hence the car rather than a radical re-development is the culmination of year's of experience with the X6 which have now been used to create the new X7 platform. We'll save most of the details for tomorrow, but head designer Koji Sanada is said to have focused greatly on natural corner speeds, suspension and traction. Now enjoy this Sunday exclusive..."
