Yep, including Mike Swauger and Robert Pietsch. When even the pros who always have new, fresh equipment that's built right are continuing to have the problem, you know something is up.

With Robert and Mike it's probably the power of their works engines that make the gears strip

But seriously, I had 4 MTX4's and I never ran into that gear stripping problem.
Sure, I've stripped a gear every once in a while, but nothing out of the ordinary.

With the 733 I've been running this season, I stripped plenty of gears though.

It's a bit of a mystery, why some people have this problem so heavily and others don't.

side track a bit: some 733's pre-production spur gears with different composite plastic material were tested because of the stripping(durability issue)as well.

It has cost me wins/top 5 finishes in races with a ton of witnesses to prove it. I always check my gear meshes and motor mount screws but it is something that happens sometimes. Again, just trying to patiently wait on the new car but will experiment with the competition until then. Oh, and I don't hit a bunch of walls and stuff.


I hear ya and i understand that it seemed to be a problem with alot of people i just think its time to move on

As has been said earlier, look to a simular release of the 8th scale that happened last year, so October-December for launch and release, we may get some CAD shots mid year with any luck.

It's my best guess but it seems likely that is how it will go.

Hi Senna!

In my opinion (just gessing) the new MTX5 will folow the steps of it's bigger brother, the MRX5. Features luke aluminium bulkheads, carbon reinforced uprights and maybe even a floating radio plate can be expected. Overal weight reduction compared to the MTX4 would be nice too.

But basicaly i hope that Mugen keeps it's "simple but fast" tradition!

And a car that is fully developed out of the box. Not like other brands that are still launching "extras" one week before the launching of a new car. You know what brands i'm talking about... That's what i never expect from Mugen. Probably what differs mugen seiki from the rest.

after seeing the mtx5, i have the instant hype that i want to buy one when it is available. I almost quite playing 1/10. My 4 has only played 4 times.
Hope this solves the issue on the front easy breaking knuckle.
