Thats the standard MRX-4 sticker. It has been out since the first MRX-4 was released.

I ran the MSR body this weekend...AWESOME! Simply, it makes the car more stable, responsive and it fits perfect.

BTW:
Front and rear body mounts to the back
Mugen spoiler at 10mm high
Cut out the sides behind the front wheels
Cut out the top behind the front body mounts

Huh... weird: 10mm of rear spoiler needed?, the most high I put my spoiler was 7mm over the body. Seems that 'whip' body setup gives a lot of steering and so little rear grip. What kind of front body posts you used? the short or the long ones?

Gonna test it (going to order a pair for testing), but from some weeks to now found a great gem on the Kyosho Dome (here, the starting grids are very 'boring' with the PF 530...).

The track had low grip so I needed a little more wing to settle it. It would have worked with 4-7mm if the track had medium grip. And I used the short front body posts. I ran it back-to-back with the T530 and it had over 12mm of wing.

Sounds on the line with the Ky Dome, the main tradeoff with that body were the horrendous trim lines for the Mugen and the fact that needed to shave the long body posts up to 16mm high (measured height of the thickest part of the body post) to place it correctly and not catching air on the front. Has any homologation number? At this side of the pond, things about bodies are really picky regarding this.

You can get them from Serpent or Mugen. The most commonly used is the Serpent one.

Look at this:

Just starting to put my 4-R together, where should I start out on the belt tensioner, front, mid, or rear slot?

Are you using the kevlar or rubber belts? The rubber belts wear better if run looser (standard position) and the kevlar's in the middle or standard position. I haven't run any belts in the rear postion...they felt too tight. The side belt should have about 8-10mm of play on the bottom with rubber belts and a little less for kevlar.

I'll see you down at 301 soon with my R.
