Ahh I here ya. I need just like $800 cash on me now and I'd go ahead and buy a real car. I really don't want to sell the MRX4 even though I didn't drive it much. I never really had the time to sit down and run it. It only has about 7 or 8 tanks thru it.

Joe,

Does this mean you are concentrating on running sedan only?

You're not leaving the hobby are you?

Thanks racer x 1,

The MRX4 just ran exceptional over the weekend. And if anyone has a car like this, it makes it so much easier. I was impressed with the car myself. I got it on Wednesday, finished building it Thursday and ran qualifiers with on Saturday. Obviously, I have yet to learn more about the car but it has already established to be a more Worry Free Car (Top quality on the parts used) and how good it is out of the box. (everything on that car was stock - including the shock oil).

I love my MRX4 I mean I just started driving it and it is absolutly the strongest car I have ever owned. But if I had to choose between a MRX3 and any of the cars made by the other companies I would choose the MRX3. Mugen quality is just in a class of its own.

Default Long Upp Rear Arm

Hi

Can anyone comment on or has tested the new longer upp rear arm? With longer rear upp arm, wouldn't rear width need to be wider to keep the same camber? Wider rear means more stable and less steering?

Thanks.

Thanks.
The longer upper arm is created when you relocate the upper hinge in towards the inner hole. Therefore the overall length of the upper arm is increased yet there is no change in overall rear track width. The longer upper arm will generate less camber change as the rear wheel is compressed, great for low bite tracks.

What you mean to say is "wider track width = more stable and less steering."
