We are all patiently waiting. If it performs like its big brother, the MRX5, there will definitely be one in my stable.

havent noticed before but by looking at this pics! the side pulleys look like directly
placed over the shafts, no more pulley adapters (perhaps less rotating mass), no rear
chasis brace due to alum bulkeads so no need for that, and the radio tray is open in the back so to go give space to the fuel tank and also providing maximum flex to the chasis, also by looking at the chasis i see two holes, perhaps that is to use screws when flex is not desired!
finally if it goes like the mrx series, i see the first upgrade the turnbuckle in the front uprights to be replaced for a longer one, stock is 22mm, in the mrx series 30mm is used, but i will say
maybe 27mm is enought, anyway lets wait and see

will keep it posted

btw just ordered RPM tires, which are now imported by mugen racing in the US, rpm tires are manufactured by matrix in italy! so now you have ennety and rpm tires to choose from!
Seems that site is down. Anywhere else to see pics?

If that is the case, that would be great. Now, if we can get some pricing so that I can get the funds together (if it is not too much more than the MTX4R pricing).

Care to share those concerns, we've got a month or so for some chit chat prior to release.

I know a few have raised eyebrows about no bracing between the back end and the deck, I'm not sure anything else has gotten away with dropping a brace there somewhere?.

I think another brand did try it, but then had to come up with a brace after release?, can't remember what brand it was though.

What worries me is I can't even see on the CAD pics where you would brace it, having said that maybe Mugen can make a chassis without it, first time for everything I guess.
