I think the MTX4R was around the $550 range from memory. that was the full hopped up version
Those were the days.

Kindest regards,

Default aussie dollar

They saying the AU dollar could 1.10 US within the next month then back down to 95 US by the end of the year. The Serpent 733 with the DLS for 440 US about 400 AU at 1.10 US including post now. If the MTX5 comes out at 599 the same price as the Kyosho 4r and the dollar goes back down to 95 US. that would make the

I think I paid a preorder price of $469 or so for the MTX4 when it first came out several years ago. Even if the MTX5 is $550USD, I'll be preordering. I can not speak for the other touring cars out there but in the case of the Mugen, You have to pay for quality. These cars are tanks out there. (Especially after my horrible driving yesterday and getting t-boned by a 8th scale and GT car. Never broke a part.)

I have to say it...

How many people will be buzzing for the MTX, now that the MRX just blitzed the worlds!!!.

I feel like hassling Rob on facebook to work faster on it, but he needs at least a week to bathe in the glory of being WC...



Right now I don't even want to do any more nitro touring till the 5 comes out...

Looking forward to the new Sedan. I hope the new sedan will have the same performance as the 1/8th scale...

Sooner than we had hoped if it's true...

Given that I think I'll be selling my 4, don't really feel like spending anymore money on it before the 5 comes out, I never invested much into it (got it used), decided some time back I wanted something new to work with, glad I waited for the Mugen, just the CAD images sold me on it...
