MTX-4 is a Race car, if you have that many rock on the road, please go for HPI RS4RTR or maybe NTC3

Default fitting the Mazda 6

I have seen many people complaining about using a Mazda body on the new car. I spoke to Mugen about this problem, giving them some suggestions. I had not finished my car so I couldn't try it myself. Well, here is how to "fix the problem". Trim the foam front bumper so it doesn't stick out so far. If you don't shorten the front bumper, when you try and put the body on many of you know the rear body posts come up into the wing mounts. If you at it though you will see the tires are not in the wheel wells. Trim the front bumper down until you can slide the body back enough to get the wheels into the wheel wells. At that point, the rear body mounts will be in a useable spot. The layout of this car is different than the MTX3. If you still have your 3 and have a 4 as well, try laying them chassis to chassis. Match up the axles and you will see how the bumper of the 4 is farther forward. Easy fix. Thanks Robbie!!

You know guys this seems to be a no brainer! I always cut the bumper to fit every body That is different,.I keep several bodies marked in my box for different ones.......

my street and drivevay arent that rocky and pebely but every once in a while there are some little pebels(SP?)/gravel. but i am planing on racing next summer so if i can get away with it i would rather get a racer now rather than switch at the begining of the season and have to spand that much more money.

I don't see that a big problem to run a racer on street as long as you set the chassis to the safe ride hide. I don't suppose you need to adjust for performance since its just the feel the wheels and turns. Just watch out for curbs and poles, and keep the car clean after each run and it will stay with you to the entering the race. Hope this helps.

reversing the rear body posts is still needed with this suggestion?

In case anyone needs a blank setup sheet. Here it is. Mugen Seiki Japan has it on their site. Too bad Mugen USA is not keeping up with this stuff.
