seeing a lot of great ideas from mrx5 and this is pretty much all you can expect from 1/10 these days. I never liked 200mm class, but this would be the one and I'll get it as soon as it is released

I'm very surprised!I've never had a Mugen but my expectations for the 5 where high and Mugen came up with something new,exotic,advanced and beautiful.For me both the 5 and the R4 shout speed even stationary.I'm in total awe.

i like a very white fuel tank(if this is going to be a production model). it makes the car more beautiful.
and please make the throttle direction more linear with the linkage and easy to adjust from the front.

opps! every car gets 4 wheels. at least the shape is not majority the same(shame).
that is called refinement and re-engineering.

Things i like! Smaller diffs and centax! Interesting i see no chasis brace? Will it help avoid stripping like on the 4? Well see! Anyway kudos to mugen for finally releasing it! My 6 year old 4 still kicks ass but it is time to let it rip!!

Well, it is about time. Mugen doesn't need to wait until the fall to get this to market. They have been dragging their feet long enough. What will be the street price on this model? Looks like not much carryover of parts from the MTX4/4R so hopefully when this car is released, there will be a release of a good number of replacement parts.
