Post FYI

Price and sale date has not yet been determined, but many r/c shops in Japan has already begun their "reserve lists".

From that view, it doesn't look any different from the MRX-3. Guess the differences are under the top deck and diff areas.

I agree with you on that one Jlock. It seems like the MRX3 on the photo. I guess we'll just have to wait & see when it comes out. I sure hope this car will be another killer.

True that. I am looking to move up to 1/8th scale racing. Been racing .12 touring for 4+ years and need a change. I run Mugen now (MTX2 and MTX3) and love the product. Long live the "Snake" killer.

I think there is a slight change in the rear upper arms... seems to be using the pillow ball design.

Looks like its going to be easier to adjust camber from now on

The car is a complete change. The only thing that is the same is the shocks, tires, pillow balls.

Mike- have you had a chance to drive it yet??? Any major differences in the handling between the MRX-3 and MRX-4?

BTW- Keep up the GREAT racing you've been doing.

The car feels about the same but carries way more corner speed.

Mugen Seiki, Japan has not yet released the DATE and PRICE of the car. Keep checking the thread, as I'll let you know when the info is available.
