Actually, does Texas still have a factory drive?

I don't really know who drives for Mugen now, apart from Phil Woodbury.

McBride went to Durango, Kerr is having a break and I thought Texas was no longer a Mugen factory driver.

There is no 8th scale driver at the moment....Stick your hand up snow man.

They wouldn't an old bloke like me.

Maybe the test driver has been Ari. He is the importer and a damm good driver.

I don't think anyone has tested the car in Aus. Our spies would have found out already.

Yeah maybe, but its not like he would have lost his factory drive..lol

Maybe, the Xray site does say it was tested here but, could be just smoke and mirrors but.

I hope the community heart rate is going to come down to a reasonable level now

Nice, solid car.

After just having finished the new Motonica P81RS, it looks kinda familiar..

Not saying it's a copy of anything!

What I like is the fact that Hudy put a receiver box on the car.

Maybe this will make receiver boxes fashionable

When I put this box on my son's 966, I was told that this is completely un-cool.....

Car looks really nice ..... I'm sure it has some really nice features .... Xray has great precision and quality .... I saw Swauger flying around the track with his at the winternats .....are the shock bodies plastic? You can see plenty of other cars in this car but being xray quality is the difference. Good luck to the xray team.

Indeed I do see some Motonica P81 sumulairities but then again, I do think the MRX4 had stand model for the Motonica....

The tank mounted onther the radio tray... bad thing for a quick acces...
The short middle shaft is sticking out a lot from the bearing supporting it, can give unwanted vibrations
Nice to see that the throttle servo is mouted normally, not layed down. I do think a layed down servo does not do anything because the center of the servo is almost at the same place.
The flex system is easy to setup but is not a quick setting you can do at a pitstop.

But it would be a nice car to look at, now we have to wait for the price....
