Default MTX 5

Mugen has done it again, With the design of MTX 5, I remember how we were in such a hurry to get the MTX 4 when we had MTX 3's, But this time it's worse For now I will continue to put it down with my 4 while jonesing for the 5

I remember very well when the 4 was released.
I had a fully loaded MTX3 and I couldn't imagine the 4 to be that much faster.
I decided to stick with the 3, until the first MTX4 showed up at the Sugar Bowl in Atlanta.
I think it was Uriah who drove it, and he was a lap faster in qualifying. With the same cars we were a pretty even match.

He let me test drive the 4 and a week later I had one too.

That's what I always loved about Mugen. When they release a new car, you can be pretty sure, that it will clearly out-perform it's predecessor.

I spoke to Mugen at the toy fair yesterday and they are aiming for mid summer as release date for the MTX5.

Sorry, but that depends on where you life.

In Australia that would be February, here in Europe it's July.

I remember that Stefan!!! That was a long time ago. I had a similar experience when the MRX4 came out. I must agree that when they release a car it will be better than the one before. Now let me get out of here before someone notices!!
