hmm... I picked Kawahara for the fact that both sides of the chassis are chamferred and more cooling vent for the engine and the fuel tank.

The mugen chassis does have a nice sharp edge to it. I have thought about taking care of that.

Picked it up wrong once.. not exactly finger friendly.

Cooling the low-end of a hot engine is one of the last 'do' if you want to have good performance on your engine, ever remember this (cold head - hot lowers). But if I need to choose, prefeer the Mugen ones with the sharp edges polished (some pics to come in short) and fingers safe.

The 4mm is much better machined than the crude 3mm stock chassis.

Here is your answer!

Check THIS out, Kawahara Delin rear lower arms. They are very strong, I had it on my mtx2 when I had the car, and it last forever!
