well,as much as I love my tc3 nitro,I found a reason to buy a Mugen if I ever wanted to go back to a belt drive car.......


I was looking to buy a Mugen MR 12 engine,and gave Mugen a call.....I figure they would know who had 'em..etc...

well,I talked to robbie....and I have to tell you....just a great guy to talk to....he knew I needed it for a tc3,and without any malice or hesitation,we launched into a great converation about different cars,different engines,racing 'em,and the hobby in general...and even after I told him who I was on teh forums,(he laughed),we had a great time..

we both have mutual freinds in the business,so we had fun discussing that also.....

I also congratulated him on his win......this hobby needs different cars,interesting competition between brands and plilosophies,and great people to represent it....

and as far as I'm concerned,he's one of em....(dare I say equal to the guys at associated?......ya know what?...maybe a shade ahead..try getting one of associateds racers on the phone )


all in all a good job by Team Mugen....

Default What tuned pipe for me next...?

my X12 Turbo pipe was badly sandwiched at its stinger section after hit by another car...
tried to prise out the dent through the stinger but to no avail its getting worse that the stinger joint almost break!!! Would this affect the performance of my engine dramatically?
any good pipe to recommend?
BTW, the front and rear belts start to wear out rather fast...some stretches were torn...

Try the RDLogics Turbo pipe. Inexpensive and efficient.

So are the majority of you guys running the mugen-spec FAST tires or the standard zero offset wheels with the adapter? What are the pros and cons?

Cartman is right, no more than 1 amp for a fast charge. I actually prefer to trickle charge the pack the night before with a standard wall charger. To me, the packs seem to have a longer life, and hold the charge longer. However, I have come to realize that if you do any serious racing and extended length mains, then you will most definetly have to do a fast charge right before the main, or buy a 2nd rx pack. I've only had the car in 2 races so far (car's only been in service about a month), and the rx pack died about 2 min into the the main-- REALLY pissed me off. So I guess I'm going to have to buy another rx pack until somebody comes up with 1100ma AAA nimh cells.

Or, if you have power at your track, bring or buy a charger. I usually charge my rx pack right after my last qualifier. Or if you don't have power at your track, buy a 2nd rx pack and charge it the night before the race.

The instructions that came with my battery (mugen) recommend to charge at 0.5 to 1 A. 0.5 A is what I am using.

Anyone?

Also, do the 730 Rx packs have good enough run time or will it fall short in long mains?
