I wanna see how tough my Mugen MTX3 during 4 hours race .

Why not MTX4 ?...... maybe later when my LHS have MTX4 spare parts.
4 hours !!! thats way too long... is this with just one driver only or is there a team of drivers?

2 cars, 2 drivers, 1 new painted body, 1 transponder.

No restriction on how long a driver is driving. Drivers can drive his own car or drive his partner car if the partner is okay.

Team that completed 600 laps finish first, just like in Formula 1 .

Last time my friend enter 6 hours endurance race

about 2 years ago, I drove a 500 lap race in Montgomery, AL. Did all the driving by myself with 1 pit person. I only used 1 set of tires, I went to BSR rubber cap tires for endurance, and used over a gallon of fuel. After awhile, my eyes felt like they were stuck open, I got tired on the drivers stand, and it was like being hipnotized.

I won that race by only 1 min 30 seconds ahead of second. The way they did it was everybody that was still running had to complete the 500 laps, unless you withdrew. It was a race sponsored by Sidewinder, and it was a money race. You got paid by the number of laps you ran, and by the place you finnished.

Hahaha, I have to drink vitamins for my eyes and my partner must drink too

Yours 500 laps = how many hours ?

Mine 1 hour = 190 laps for average group A drivers

BTW, you did all the driving by yourself for 500 laps ?? Wow !!! Great stamina !!

Thanks gfd2726 !

Anyway, if i were to install the post the other way, the rear top arm will be touching the rear post which i don't think is healthy and probably got to dremel down the rear top arm ball end or the rear body post.

Thanks once again !

All laps driven by myself. 2 battery packs. 3 in the car. Team was alowed 3 drivers and 1 pit person. the three drivers could have been used as pit people, but my budy and I traveled 12 hours to get there and race. He also had a 500 lap race too, driven all by him.

i would think it probably won't fit perfectly because of the different chassis design. but i'm not 100% sure....

Technically, it has been released in the US...

However, unless you already have one, you can expect to wait another month or so to get one.

Price? Your guess is as good as any. They are going anywhere from 400 - 600 dollars. Hope they go down!
