Doubt so much it can hold the pace, don't have rear wing and those cars need it as you need to breath to make the rear end planted. For a show car, could be ok, but not much more.

Thumbs up Almost finished of assembling.

And found many things have changed from the MTX-3 to the 4... Ones for good and others for bad.

Rear bulkheads on the 3 were their weak point (how many got a DNF after a rough take-off and the two nipples where the rear shock tower was attached went berserk). Now are much massive.

Brake rotor is almost a joke... Ditched (as I did with all the other Mugen cars I've assembled) and installed one, sorry, no digicam now but... you can see some pics of it there (posted by Manticore some time ago - sent it one rotor):

This rotor came 3 years ago on my MTX-3 and on the MRX-3 and still work great on all two cars. Anything capable of stopping 2800grams of car without breaking a sweat, not warping and not collecting dirt on their surface is great. Will be installed on all mine '4' cars too.

Pics in few days, when camera returns from Tech service.

Put some blue brake pads (my kit come with the black and the blue ones - those last are for the MBX-5). Normally I've found the black ones too grippy and made the brake too delicate for being used. I'll need to test them.... anyone did it?

Car is very light (at least, mine seems to be). So not much lightweight parts seems to be needed. I'm planning to order only the Ti screws for the upper side (Front CVD's are installed - had a spare pair from my '3').

I have a few questions for you lucky people that get to run your new cars (to cold to run here).

Is the 600 weight shock oil the same as 60 losi oil? When I hear guys say that they switched to 500 weight could I just use 50w that I have?

My kit only came with one side belt and a 24t and 25t side pulleys. What size are you starting out with on you front tire (how many mm's split front to rear)for each pulley?

What have you noticed when you put shims in and take them out on the front upper arm block?

The alloy could be of anykind of metals for example: Steel, aluminium, is another alloy, where the main component is bauxite.

Aluminum only is one pure element.
Alloy is usually mixture of different kinds of metals to create some desired characteristics.

the black pads seem to fade a bit, I have to add brake to the car after about 15 min of racing. This car I put the blue pads on, I will know more after I race it.
