I decided to be creative... 360 pictures in 1 degree increments cramed together into a 7.5MB AVI file.

I'll be making the thumbnail sheets later so you can see each individual picture in full detail. The movie kind of ruined the quality of the pictures but still cool to see.

Check the MRX3.com site, I should have some done by the end of the night.

Oh! The AVI file is at:

This isn't my car and the guy only gave me what you see, I did not assemble it, so there is a lot I don't know.

-The roll bar is the Kawahara one for the MTX-2.
-Front bumper is MTX-2 stuff, pics on my site show an after market carbon bumper plate.
-Kawahara Side belt tensioner will fit.
-Rear diff does NOT leak at all. (owner will not let me take it apart, LOL)
-The Kawahara brake disk for the MRX-3 will fit this car.

Pics are up on the MRX3.com site.

Very nice pics, Very clean... Nice job. What kind of camera and lighting did you use?? These pics are so much better than the pics on Mugen Japan's site (the one and only pic rather) or Mugen USA's site. The pics on Mugen USA's site are horrible (actully the whole site stinks, horribly designed, looks like a pile, they need to do something about that, maybe take some cues from Yokomo's site, sheeshh). The pics on Mugen USA's site are totally over exposed or something. You cant see any details. It's all washed out looking.

Anways, good job man.

P.S. the car looks sick!!!!!!

I cant wait to see it start thrashing the living heck out of NTC3's.

hmmmm.... thats the whole point. You have all the options. Experiment with them! The story about the World Champs sounds like there was a little bias to me!

It appears Mugen fever has hit home hard on the Kyosho nutty professor! Nice to see that like a fine wine, an RC fanatics taste matures with age

Default battery

what's up with the battery? I saw on starting grid where robbie said you can't use regular 5 cell pack. Where to get a pack for this car and which exactly do you need? I haven't got mine yet but I don't want any delays when I do get it.

"I thought Robbie Collins was a mugen employee who happens to race more so than a mugen factory driver i.e. osaka".

Hello patelladragger;
I raced for Mugen before I worked for Mugen, and to answer your question that really has nothing to do with nothing yes I am a what you consider a Factory Driver, I do travel allot to promote and race Mugen product, and I also work for mugen my title is marketing and sales.

For what it's worth here's what I ment in regards to the gearing thing, 17/48 1rst gear 22/42 this gear works better on this car than the MTX-2 because of the over all gear ratio.

MTX-2 5.717
MTX-3 5.431

To address the issue of me making the car out to be more than what it is or not telling the truth about how it really performs, just to sale kits, look at what I said about the top end performance on my first outing with the car.

I don't post things because I have to.
I post things because I am also a racer just like you guys, so if you have a problem with my observations or setups then I'll stop posting.

To address the comment about the pics on the MUGEN RACING web page those pics were taking by Tim and myself, all we were doing was trying to get the pics out as soon as possible, so sorry if our pics didn't meet some of your standards maybe next when something new comes out we'll weight and have a professional come in and take pics.
