If they have spare part, they need to start driving more aggresively and risk breaking stuff so they can use up the parts. Or start selling 'em trackside

OK OK, I'll admit, there are a few things that I'd like to be able to take over from the 3 to the 4. Not expendables like uprights and arms. But those stupid little Titanium turnbuckle rods that I have all over my car. I upgraded those from my standard kit when I got it. AND i'm praying the Kawahara rear sway bar will fit. I just got that thing like 2 months ago. Other than that, I can live with changes as long as they're for the better.

That's pretty funny. But If I remember correctly, I wasn't the repairing my car first thing in the morning on race day this weekend.

Yeah it's done. I just need your radio. Drop it off tonight and I'll have everything programmed, charged and ready to race on Wed night.

@Mike, what about roll-center adjustments? Is the front adjustable, i also see some color change on the rear like the s710 has inserts there..?
I think the description on the Mugen website is a little 'limited', how come?
How are the shocks mounted, the same way as the serpent cars have or the mugen way with the screw thru the boll?
When will there be more information about the car like exact release dates? Prices? Manual maybe?
The front roll center is adjustable. It is just like the MRX-4. The shock will also mount like a MRX-4. Sorry but I do not know how the Serpent shocks mount or how they change the roll center.

Are the shocks the same as the mtx-3 or are they using the MRX 1/8th scale shocks ?

Hi Mike,

You looked awesome at the ROAR Nats - too bad about the batt. problem.

I think a big question is, what parts if any from the 3 will work on the 4?

Great to hear the rollcenter is adjustable, nice

The s710 works with these things: http://shop.the-border.nl/product.ph...&cat=81&page=7



What type of receivers will fit? I have an old sanwa receiver (the big one) will that fit?

Thanks Mike.

Just a point - a lot of the 710 and RRR drivers have seen the CAD drawings of the MTX4 and have said that there is nothing really new from what they already have - I Hope the MTX4 will really live up to the Mugen name and shut these guys up!! Go Mugen!!

Alot of them also said that about the CAD drawings when the MRX-4 came out. Truth and behold, both the MRX-3 and the MRX-4 are two TOTALLY different cars. A picture can say a thousand words, but owning a mugen product is a lifetime of commentment to excellence. Go Mugen !!!

When saw the CAD drawing, it's Serpent 710 & V1RRR concept. Hope MTX4 has something new and special on design. Or just wait for the serpent new car on next year.
