I think the MTX4r also won the Italian nationals this year... I know sedan racing is very active in europe.. IMO the car is more than capable, the only difference with new cars are the owners state of mind... They try set ups they haven't tried before and do so much testing in the first week to beat their time from their prev car.....lol

I've tried some setup tips given to me this week and I can tell you I've gained a lot from my current time.. It feels like a whole new car to me....
I've got alot different ideas I want to try the only problem is It's 19 degrees with about a foot of snow on the ground.

I've always tuned my chassis for an abundant amont of rear traction. Now I've come the point where the added rear traction has caused the car not to rotate. I need to raise the rear roll center to help the car to rotate better. So I have a bout 4 setups I want to try next season.

Race you later....Pass you soon...

I'm gonna test it one more time to make sure it works in differnt conditions...
I can tell you this much, It didn't sound right when I was told to try it..... but it transformed the MTX4-r into another level IMO

What I heard is that there will not be a new kit. There is going to be an upgrade to the current car with different materials in plastics.

Making them stiffer for a better performance car.

thats a good thing. We dont need a new car. The 4r is still plenty fast. They Just need to address a few small issues. Mainly to make the car not strip gears so much
