Email Josh Cyrul. He sells Jaco's and has pretty good prices. If you're going to the WinterNats he would probably bring them and save you shipping.

Most shops average between $32-$35 for a set of four tires + shipping.

Personally I think the Jaco's are the best bang for the buck- quality/price. You can surely spend more.

i tried Jaco tyres before, the rear rim got "free-play". But on Evolva, it was OK.
MRX4 and Evolva offset(rear wheel) are not the same.

The new Jaco rims are MUCH tighter. As a matter of fact, you'll need a reamer to get them to fit easier (especially in cold weather), or else your palm will go numb from pressing them over the axles. At the Nat's in Cincy the reamer was a highly sought out tool for the Jacos- it was cold there

That is good news. But the bad thing is the distributor doesn't carry it.
I remember the old rim was a little bit too brittle. Hope it changes too.

Default Red Box

I drive an MRX4R, and will be using the Kyosho Red Box tires at the Nats. From what I heard the quality of the rims are top notch, and they are made with GRP rubber, which is crem dela crem when it comes to tires. They are 5-7 dollars more then the Jacos. I can also agree that the Jacos are very tight when using them. I hate to have to ream out rims. If it is made for the car, it should fit. I hope this is not the case with the Red Box.

Default Setups

Hi there!


Does anybody know where I can find setup sheets for the R?
The Mugenseiki site seems to be a little outdated in that matter.

I would like to see what the pro drivers run on Euro style tracks like:

Melzo or Fiorano in Italy. Fast, flowing and medium traction.

My EP car is a x-ray and they post all team driver setps on the x-ray website. This is very helpful because you can see the latest tricks...

In regard to the R I would like to see how the new bump steer and steering offset options are used (for example)

Any ideas?

Thx!

First of all excuses for my english which is not very good! I`m posting from spain. I've been reading this phorum quite a long time ago and I decided to start writing also

I`m mugen team driver in Spain, I started racing mugen chasis in 2003, but since 1989 have been racing bmt, picco (genesis,rs600, compact,integra), serpent (vector98, vector 2000). Switched to mugen with mrx3 works in 2003, and in 2005 became mugen team driver with mrx4, and I must say its the best chasis i`ve had in 20 years of 1:8th racing.

I enjoy reading your posts about the mrx4 and mrx4-R and would like also to start posting about technical matters regarding the chasis , asking and answering info in order to feedback the most info for everybody.

Here the tracks are completely different to the states tracks. I've been in the winternats 04 just to see and pit and like a lot the good feeling at the track and the pits. You really know how to have fun racing! Although I prefer European tracks I have to admit the feeling, the friendship and the show its much much better in usa.

Im looking forward to attend the winters again, not in 07 because this season is very busy here as I have European Championship 2.000 miles from home by car this summer and the national champ in my country is 4 races, plus a couple of regional races it too much.

In 04winternats I met Ron a very nice guy and great driver form usa at the nats, he raced mugen in 04, afterwards switched to kyosho and came back to mugen as team driver, I suppose some would know him. Also met Ritchey, Rasheed, Gary, Chris from NY (Brooklyn hobbies) and have nice remember of all them.

Maybe this is not the most suitable post to write this but as its about mrx4 I thought to introduce myself here in this post would be OK, sorry for the long speech!

I enclose some photos of my 06 season with MRX4-R

Kindest regards form Spain.
Greetings Alberto!

Please send me a PM on your email address again and so we may keep in touch..
Nice pictures by the way.
