thank you!
it looks ok, but i like my serpent 960 design a little bit more.
it feels that the kysoho have some kind of "sharp" design.
hard to explain but

i like the nova engine

Default brake disc

Have any of you experienced the brake disk holes wallowing out? I'm referring to the holes the drive pins go through. It seems the disc spins out of round when this occurs, which causes it to hang up on the pads. Would the APP disc solve this? Is the metal better?

Thanks in advance.

-Steve

IMO the APP brake set is manditory for smooth brakes. I really dis like the three piece brake sets found stock in Mugen, Kyosho and Serpent and others as they promote run out which creates lock ups. I have been very impressed with the APP set from Kyosho. We sell very few pad set so I have to say the pad seem to hold up really well.

As for the pin problem, the one piece disc has a lot more area on it so pin wear will be reduced.

Agreed,

The APP brake set are the best brakes I have ever had.

Going from standard brakes to APP's the difference is night and day!! The cast steel rotor that comes with them is sure porky, but when you throw the anchor out the extra weight is worth it.

I recieved the new Kyosho Wide Offset axles today, they allow for 2mm of offset. The craftmanship and quatlity look very good. Also the new gears look great too, we'll see how well they wear.

Default Mugen MRX4-R Ver II versus Kyosho Evolva 2005

Can someone give me an unbiased opinion about the driveability of Mugen MRX4-R Ver II versus Kyosho Evolva 2005? Someone who has both cars can be very helpful to offer an opinion. I am buying a used one on the market to get in 1/8 and it seems like both are very competitive.

My biased opinion - Evolva
Go to: http://www.kyoshoamerica.com

Great parts availability. Strong parts. Flexible set-up. Loads of help from your future fellow Kyosho owners. Great right out of the box - optional parts aren't required to be competitve. But, loads of cool aftermarket stuff is waiting should you choose to add that extra sparkle!

Here is my biased opinion

Go with the Kyosho

First off, the 2 cars you are considering are the best 2 on the market.

I owned an MRX-3, not an MRX-4, I have driven a couple 4's at our track. The Mugen car is a really good car, I think the key difference between it and the Evolva is stability. The Mugen car seems to have a little more inherent turn in than the Evolva, but is usually not as stable. The sweetspot in terms of set-up on the Mugen car is narrower than the Evolva. Often when the Mugen cars fast, they look and feel loose. Almost like a dirt car around the track, sliding, double steering etc..

The Kyosho's sweet spot is much wider. You can throw just about anything at it and it's pretty hard to make in undriveable. Whereas the Serpent cars as well as the MRX-3 I had in the past you could completely dial it out of ballpark. When you watch a Kyosho car on the track, it looks like a 1.12th modified car, very balanced and well mannered, even in the hands of a intermediate driver.

The downside to inherent stability of the Kyosho is sometimes on parking lot tracks, finding the amount of turn in the Mugen cars can generate on the same tires is difficult. But, kyosho, empire and delta make some good upgrades that loosen the car up a bit, and get it to turn more, under those types of track conditions.

I think for some one just getting in 1/8 the Kyosho car is the better of the 2. I'm not reeally good at the set up thing yet but Aaron is wright about the car handling great with what ever kind of set up you put on it.

Aaron are the new short upper arms out yet and where can you get them at??
