I see a bunch of Ti parts out there. (Dogbones and main shaft... expensive, quite expensive). The Carlsen front outdrives are nice, but their machining quality, leaves a little to desire (seen a set of those and the machining wasn't as nice should be leaving sharp edges).

I prefeer a set of hollow steel main and front shafts (cheaper). Seems that Carlsen has some of those.
i wonder why my car like than. i need to buy some hop ups but to expensive

The '4-R' is the MRX4 with some different parts used at the past worlds at Messina (you maybe heard about Messina kit). Those parts range from the most subtle different (front a-arms) to the rear shocks and the new shock stay, rear a-arms, bulkheads, belt tensioners and other parts.

The 'old' rear shocks were identical the front ones on the 4-R, I've read something that indicated about the change of size was made for gaining some stability and better control of the rear suspension, but haven't heard or seen anything official about this point.

Look at this page and you'll see how was the MRX-4. The third photo shows the rear shocks. Compare them with the 4-R.

the new rear shock bodies are longer than the original, i know this cause i have both kits.
i believe they were made this way to accomodate the new rear shock tower as well.
its nice cause now you dont have to compress the spring by bringing the collar 3/4 of the way down the shock body.
the new "R" kit kicks ass.
i am very new to the racing scene, and still learning everytime i get out, but i have talked to many drivers which have switched from serpent or kyosho and said the mugen is a dream to drive......
i call it a rush!
i have also noticed that the changes made in the "R" kit are very minor, which is a good thing, it has been a solid car right from the start, so why change.
one thing, i would like to see however, is more aluminum, standard or option.
keep up the good work mugen seiki.
forever a customer.

i think that would be too small, i tend to race on larger tracks where taller gearing is needed. but then again, maybe i should try it out.my club is in hamilton, ontario, but i try to make it to cincy or toledo whenever i can.
usually i am running the 17,20 tooth combo
