The bulk shipment of kits and parts arrived at Mugen USA. They are starting to ship orders to distributors and hobby shops even as I type this.

Hopefully Revelations will ge their shipment before the race. I have heard nothing but good so far about the car. How are all of the new adjustments working out? Is anyone exploiting all of them yet?

Jea3: YOU are correct. and the for JustRace: TQ was won by a serpent, I will admit that. However I might add that we are in Snake Country, so we have to let them have something....ha ha..

I'm not positive who had TQ, but I know Maxy was running strong.

As for the MTX-4. I'll run mine at Superior this weekend. I've got the diff built and setting up the second car for it. See you guys there.

The Track in Hudson is smaller than others, so I don't think the 1/8th scale cars would be a good fit to the track, but if someone wants to come to the track and check it out, I'll let them be the judge. I know that it will make a good track for the electric, but if running nitro, it would be nice to add a short track to the Forgas events.
Anybody running 1/8th scale want to comment?
I know the track owner would be interested.

Question for everyone. When running a front solid axle do you run thick or thin lube in the rear? Thanks.

Are there any more building tips? I was planing on building mine tomorrow. Also, what's with the quick-dry glue? I went through the directions and did not notice anything that need a super type glue bond.

The glue is for the brake pads.

For the building tips? Well here is one for ya. When I built my MTX3 Prospec, and the new MTX4, I will make sure all the lower A-Arms drop with there own weight. In other words, make sure to take the time to shave all the little burrs off the plastic. Put the lower suspension together, and lift the A-Arms. When you let go, they should drop with there own weight.

Also, I didn't like the bearings in the kit. They seemed to be lub'ed with grease. I cleaned them up, like you would do maintenance on your current car. Re-oil them, and you'll get a free rolling car right from the start.

For servos, I'm using the Futaba 9451 digital for steering, and futaba 9550 digital for the throttle.

Love the car, and plenty of people wanted to look it over at the races.

RC, thanks for the help, and I'll see you at Superior, but I'm running my MTX3 Prospec there.

The front and rear arms also wont drop on their own if the hex screw is tighten too much. If it doesnt drop on their own, say good bye to your suspension and say hello to the corner boards.

The mrx-4 has a lot of steering. I had these a month ago. And somebody set up "AL" 1 degree out, And after my tire and caster swap, I was cuttung through the turns carrying a lots of speed. What impresses me most about these car is watching body react to the suspension movements keeping downforce in the car. Its really cool.
