just out of curiosity, is this new car far better, just as good or not as good as the rrr? i have a rrr and was thinking about going for the mtx4, but just wondering how it performs.

Performance maybe the same like RRR. Durability maybe better on Mugen cars.

How come your name joemugen ?

I went to our local distributor here and saw s/parts for X4 arrived,suddenly shocked when a friend tell me not only side belt has 2 length option,front and rear too.. then he said d brake pulley and front layshaft centre pulley got option too..start to do investigation and found it is rubbish,d 2 front and rear belt came with urethane and rubber which i think good for track differetiate and option pulleys..

I think urethane better on plastic pulleys and rubber best on aluminium pulleys..what do you think?

joemugen, The RRR is a great car, ( the best ) sedan in 1/10th racing today. The mtx 4 might be better,we will have to wait and see. For now stay with your RRR and just change your name to joekyosho!

The last time I went to KL, I couldn't find real RC shop ( shops which have wide range of good stuff ). Do you know where ? Hopefully near Bukit Bintang area ?

You talking about aerodynamics. In order to have a good handling on your car. you must learn about aerodynamics,downforce,center of gravity and the right things to set up of your car. Thats basic important things you must learn.

I think the RRR and MTX4 are going to be very close in terms of performance.
An example of this was the recently held Australian National Titles........9 MTX 4`s in the A main, 1 RRR in the A main. The RRR went on to win.
The 2006 Worlds are going to be very very interesting

Yep different bodies will provide different handling characteristics to the car.
I ran a Protoform Mazda 6 for most of this year and it was very good....i did however try the Protoform Dodge Stratus 3.1 a couple of months ago at a local track and was most impressed with its handling....it had great turn-in, and was very stable on the fast sweepers.

I think the new Kawahara IS250 body is cool.

I ran the car with the 3.1 body today and it handles really well.
