The mrx5 is the best car i drove to date . I have had no glitching and i use ko radio ko remote . although i did drill 2 big holes in the side of the receiver box when i built the car to let some air in to keep receiver cool , that was only modification i done . Car is box stock and was amazing to drive at preworlds in homestead .
I heard blue diamond will repave track and make bigger for 1/8th ? Also the brooklyn hobbies team has done countless hours of r& d on the car if you get one we are here to help as team mugen northeast representives.

I havent had any issues now that i changed to the smaller futaba reciever. Never had any problems with the savox servos they have been great.

Who's Hara? Only joking, I had a feeling when his name was on the entry list for the WC it had Mugen written all over it. Not sure why people tough he would be racing for Shepherd.

Anyone?

My friend who use to TQ most of the time with his MRX4X, nowdays he said " is having difficulties to keep up the fight with the 5 ".

So I guess only me and him still left with MRX4 cars

Guys which turnbuckles are recommended to use on the front uprights instead of the stock ones? Read somewhere that t2's are larger (more thread) therefore preventing stripping!!!! Anyone?
