Its an alloy/carbon version of the Mugen MTX3. Car is real sweet and doing very well in Italy. There is a very detailed instruction manual on the technokit website.

Whether the MTX4 rumor is true or not; this kit would be a bad decision since it is based on the MTX3 (IF the the new MTX rumor is true), BUT it does use a LiPo battery underneath the fuel tank and I am sure there may be a few more revisions.

The car is an absolute work of art, it's a shelf piece in my book. Something to brag and look about.

There are a few differences between the bulkheads at the rear. The bulkheads are wider apart and run parallel to each other due to the carbon plates. The chassis is slightly wider at the rear too to allow for this.

From what I can see the front is the same but you need to buy all the main parts to fit together (bulkheads, top braces for shocks, wishbones and accessories and the front bumper set).

There will be a complete MTX3 conversion set appearing later in the year from what I hear. Not sure what the price will be. Most of the alloy parts will be made from carbon based plastic for strength and lightness.

I wonder how those carbon fiber arms would hold up in a collision.

I wondered the same thing but after running tests on CAD (Autodesk Inventor 9) they are actually a lot stronger than plastic arms.

I think they would be stronger but more brittle. I also wonder if they flex and has an effect on how the suspension works. I think the track is the real test and hopefully I will see one soon.

very true, the FEA that one can do with Inventor on a part is static load, not impact. i think how a part disburse energy upon impact depends mostly on the material characterstics, the geometry of the part and the point of impact.

modeller, show us how you do the analysis if you don't mind.

Alloy knuckle is a bad idea since the bearing can become hot. I also already looking at this car, wow there is so much screw in there!! The number one which is not good I think is the ball diff and the tank but you replace to MTX3's

I will strip off all the suspension arms and replace them with MTX3 parts IF I buy this car.

How heavy is this car out of the box ? 2 kg ?

Put a 0 behind that 2, and change your number into pounds.
