I'm pretty sure they are 1mm offset at least the ones that I used this past weekend were.

Why is it that neither Mugen site (Japan, USA, Europe) has ANY MTX4 setups posted??????

It's horrible, it always was with Mugen.

Every other manufacturer has PLENTY of support information online, just not Mugen.


Are they too lazy?
Are they afraid they could get beat by a customer with their own setup?

I know that Robbie C is probably gonna come on here and give me some BS, but they should probably spend that time putting some useful information about their products online.

Is the any problems using a zero offset wheel ? and
which tyres are best in low grip situations.

Thank you
I'm using the 1 mm alu shims that came with the MTX3 prospec and it works fine.

I've used basically the stock setup on MTX4 for the last three races and it was good. I changed tire shores and the car it got even better. Sometimes the stock setup is the best place.

Give Mugen USA a call or email them, I'm sure they will help you out. Everyone's needs are different. I once tried Swauger's setup from the Winter Nats (posted on their website) and nearly drove my car off the track in every corner. What works for them may not work for us.

Try the one below.

I like it a lot. Smooth power curve and uses less gas than my FXs. It's an off-the-shelf EB Mod. Don't know enough about it yet to judge it against other modded OSs, but it rocks. Keeps a tune too.

you can run the mazda, but i find that the mazdas are a bit more edgy with alittle more downforce, ive converted to a stratus on both my RDX and mtx4 and found the cars alot easier to drive with the stratus, a very clean looking body that works well and is very stable

Not a huge fan of the Mazda 6. I would use either the Stratus 3.1 or the Parma Type-M.

I was running the Mazda 6, but switched to the 3.1 stratus, and I won't be going back.

@stefan: let me know if you need setups...
Attached the one from the "SM-Lauf Süd" in Amberg (Germany), car was fantastic. This is a medium size track with average traction.

Forgive me if this has been asked before but does anyone have an editable MTX -4 setup sheet?
