That's right !!! MRX4-RR. ...... yeah..... RR is more elegant and cooler than X.

Again, it was for Mugendude his reaction....

But actually, if Mugen really comes with an upgrade (lets call it that because it is still called MRX4) they upgraded more this year then Serpent did, or am I wrong?
MRX4 WC edition, then MRX4-R, and now MRX4-X....

But hey, I don't mind, as I said also to people bashing Serpent for doing so, "you don't HAVE to buy the upgrades"
In fact they could slow you down on your particular track.....

But if a manufacturer does nothing in development, they slowly get behind, so they have to to stay ahead of the competition....... and last but not least, they also have to earn money, or not?

ok so when is the MTX4RX coming out...you know it is, don't lie

i was going to get a xray NT1, but we all know the new mugen will just be a evolution of the 4R as oposed to a revolution...so basically it will have all the low CG parts design of the NT1 right?

M7H,

What is the MRX4 WC Edition? There is no such thing that I know of (as well as Mugen Japan / USA websites).

Also whats with the company you use so highly..... 960....then 960 FD....and then 960 '07???

Upgrades are ok to improve products. Being that Mugen is releasing an upgrade as the first in 2 years fo 8th on road would mean only one thing to me.....they produce good products!

Good question....
I've seen it on a thread here somewhere, it was a link to a website or something...
Could well be the MRX4-R, but with a wrong name or something...
never mind...

They do, I never said they don't......
They were the car to beat, so other manufacturers needed to upgrade to there level...
Maybe Mugen does a step forward now again....

The kit should be available in about two to three weeks. The new name for the car is the MRX4-X


Hey Mike,

Just curious. Is there any pictures on the new kit yet? Also, will the MRX-4R parts useable in the new kit?

Thanks

Nope.... you're just wrong, let's see if we can straighten this because a catfight is just on order....

In the not so old days, Mugen released the MRX-4, some time after (after 2005 worlds) they released the 'Messina Kit' aka MRX4-R (the Myth about the -R suffix points to Mike Swauger as the originator of the new name).

Some time after, it won the the JMRCA championship, so they released the what so called MRX4-R v2. Was like the -R with the optional hard chassis and new uprights nothing more, nothing less... for those wasn't spared a name change so many coincide on saying that running changes from Mugen showed on the new version with stiffer chassis.

Now... seems that before Worlds, Mugen wants to release a new car (this is the car they patterned for the worlds or something more is on their hats?) and they calls MRX4-X.

Until today and unless someone gives a proof of that 'kit' is for sale NOW only two versions have been on the market, the third version is a running change, just because you cannot get the 'old' 4-R and the unique they sell is the one with harder chassis and updated front uprights.

BTW: Forget about french guys, they love to turn mad people launching 'special' named versions for their own local market, they did with the MTX4 selling the MTX4-SP who was a plain MTX4 kit with front diff and front CVD's no more, no less. And what seems to be 'MRX4 WC'... I bet that was the so badly called v2.
