What about the Mugen 4mm chassis? I find that I've stiffened enough the rear portion of the car, but planning to put on the track a second chassis with Lola body and wanted to know about the optional chassis.

Any throughts if Mugen plan to release a floating rear body mount or need to do some bricolage like the photo that posted Manticore on the past days?
The option chasis is milled out for lower cg's, by having lower center of gravity stability of the car should be good less chance of rolling over.

I don't think Mugen will be coming out with a floating rear pod, this type of rear end usually only works on large high bite tracks, floating rear pods takes the roll out of the rear end thus taking away traction, on the other hand if you are using a Lola body this type of rear end would be great do to the fact Lola bodies have so much down force.

Hi Robbie,

Hope you can answer these 3 questions I have regarding your WinterNats setup ;

1. Yourself/Kenji/Tim all opted for the optional H0767 Super Hard clutch spring over the standard kit spring - What was the reason for this? Any input on feedback on this would be great

2. I noticed you and Tim were using Red Clutch shoes - I take it these are harder than the standard black shoes - Are these Mugen products?

3. Did you guys play around with the different ackerman and rear block adjustments? Any info on how the other ones felt?

Thanks
1. The sliver spring gives you more snap off the corners.

2. The red shoe is a hard material power is smoother and consistent, it also last alot longer than the other soes.

3.When the bite came up we changed to the B ack in front and the A A blocks in the rear = less steering lower CG's.

So.... with the addition of 4mm chasis and the blocks, and dirty tricks like throttle servo under the radio plate, CG should be about a pair of inches under the track...

Seems that i'm not the only that doesn't likes the stock shoes... I change it almost each race on the MRX3, they glaze and don't grip correctly.

Wanted to test the Red shoe, but found some that went real good and the best of all, doesn't glazes nor wears anormally.
