I tried the yellow shoe, it seems very hard. I like the red shoe better, it seems to give harder acceleration.

Can someone please explain to me the exact benefits of the 1 piece engine mount? I've tried searching the thread, but there is to many pages to actually find exactly where the information was posted.

Thanks in advance..

It makes the chassis stiffer in that area. I milled away 2mm of my chassis so that my engine sits 2mm lower. I use the one piece engine mount to stiffen the area where so much material was removed. I think it is beneficial in my case. Some people say it also limits engine case deformation, giving more revs, not sure about this yet.

Yes sir. And few others. Planning on attending a lot of races this year...Vegas, GLC, Sedan Nats, Open Nats & T4T.

Hopefully you'll have your MRX4R up ready for April.
