That's awesome... After 6 years?? Wow! Let us know when you have designed and manufactured one for nitro cars... Or when you have adapted one from Awesomatix...

Yeah, dont forget to video it.

MTX5 and R4 new users need to re-fill diff oils sooner than "old" versions MTX4 and RRR because diffs are smaller.

Just land mine yesterday and it's already feel-faster than my old NT1. It's much more agile with better acceleration (same engine).

I'm running following:
Tire: front 32 / rear 37
Spring: front Mugen blue / rear Mugen purple
Damper oil: front 500 1hole / rear 500 2holes
Damper pos: front 2nd from bottom / rear 2nd from bottom
Bar: i-forgot
Diff: front 300K / rear 60K

The car is super agile right now at entry, but a bit lack of consistent steering in mid. My friend say I drive way-too-fast than the corner should be so I don't know if it's driver or car. But I'm VERY happy with my new car

mugen mtx-5

alot of people speak of these issues in this forum, i will let you know that you dont need to worry, mine havent leaked let alone broken... i think these people dont pay attention to assembly.. or they dont do a criss-cross screw pattern when assembling diffs ect..it would help if you have build a mugen before
