Greg, We are still racing over here. Seems like I have the only mugen now. A lot of people dropped it for the X. Also seems like I had the only one that works, everyone I know was still fighting with gear stripping. I really don't see what the problem is. I can run with or without a brace.

I don't get it either. I stripped my second gear the first day out after building the car 4 months ago. I then read horror stories on the forums. So I bought 4 extra 2nd gears, reinstalled the engine carefully and haven't stripped a gear since. And I too, run without a brace. So I'm not sure if some of us "me included" are not careful in assembling the car or maybe some faulty manufacturing went on at mugen. Either way, I like the car a lot

A lot of people are not paying attention to detail. The chassis will bend if you have too much throw on the brake lever especially without a brace. But I only need enough brake to slow the car , not lock the wheels. It's a great car!

We really didn't have a summer, 10 days of 90 degree weather and that was it. Port Jervis will feel like an ice box come time for the regionals. But I'll do my best to represent !!
