I want to know if they are using a AA pack in stead of the AAA pack,They dont mention anything about adjustable roll centers either.Will the old kawahara rear sway bar fit it? Are the steering knuckles the same or will I have to buy all new parts.Are the pullys the same size, what about belts?

Mike S. any insite?

I was hoping the car would have a means of quickly removing the fuel tank. I hate removing the top plate to clean the tank.

By the look of the lower battery plate....it is a 2/3A batteries instead of AAA (I actually prefer that over AAA)......

The lower portion of the tank is much larger then the top part...so the tank cannot be remove unless you remove the top radio deck.....(all according from the CAD pictures, you can see it yourself)

Is the longer rear lower arm/narrow rear bulkhead - something new on the MTX series..? I don't recall any other 200mm TC used that yet... I don't own any Mugen before......but this design seems to be used on most of the 1/8th car like MRX4, Evolva 05 and 960.............MTX4 looks like the first one to adapte that.....good work.

I think its 5 AA, since when you look it from bottom, the plastic part where it goes is a bit long. With this, the problem with dead battery packs is solved.

Double A's...? The same one that we use for the radio...? If that is the case...that is another NEW for 200mm TC.
I still think those are for 2/3A........but on the S-960 (sorry about the S-word)...the battery bracket can fit AAA, AA and 2/3As.......

Well, im just trying to infer. If they made the tank that much longer, it was to make the height less so it would fit under there. Maybe its just 4 AAs, we will just have to wait and see.
