awesome I am looking to get a new car. I just got back into the hobby and I got a smokin deal on Mtx3 prospec and its about time to upgrade to a newer car. I am either wanting a Capricorn or a Mtx4r. The Cap is a little expensive and I am just a weekend warrior just racing local races to have fun. But having the latest and greatest stuff is always cool. Cant wait to see one in person.

PLEASE keep in mind when looking at prices that the LAB comes with every hop up imaginable IN THE BOX! YOU WILL BE DRIVING THE SAME CAR TOSO IS!

Yeah thats what I have been reading that the Cap is the cat daddy as far as rc cars goes today. I for sure dont want to buy something and then a few months later there is a new and improved model which i have seen that has been a gripe about mugen. We will see I got to save up some cash first but if I do decide to go with the Cap then Drew I will be dropping you a line.

As far as the Mugen goes; typically they will up date a model every two to three years. Mugens hop up list for there cars would be considered short when compared to other brands. Now as far as after market "bling" I would agree, there is a whole lot of shiny stuff that does nothing for lap times.
Let me know and all P.M. ya a price...

At this point I know the kits are coming, not sure about parts etc. I do have pricing and they are pricey.
