Really, the car is fantastic in its current form but,
I would like to see these items in an MTX6R:
1. Extended rear camber link that attaches to the rear upper bulkheads
2. Larger front outer bearings at the axles
3. Stronger front steering knuckle (upright).
4. Include 4 2-hole pistons, and 4 1-hole pistons.
5. 2.0mm front & rear sway bars.
6. a looser fit between the clutch thrust bearing stopper and small hole thrust washer.

Default Weight distribution tuning

I am looking for some feedback from on track experience using:
1. chassis tuning with the sliding weight
2. adding weight to the chassis in the area in front of the engine mount.

The BLS551 are discontinued. I moved to the BLS571SV. This is the replacement.

Pass you soon...

Hereby I would like to offer two MTX-6 kits.



The one on the left was my racecar and is still in good condition.
The one on the right is brand new and was bought as a spare kit.
Never needed a part from the spare kit so only assembled the kit in order to sell it.

Here you can find the complete listing: http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...l#post14365752

Located in Europe, will ship worldwide.

For info please contact me!.

OI... You're quitting?

Pack it up, put it away, find a wife, have a son, wait 10 years and enjoy it with him. Sad to see this Daan, you're an awesome RC racer, selling up everything?

No quitting here Harry!. Just a 2-3 year break from active racing while I finish up my house I bought a few months ago.
It's a waste letting the cars sit and collect dust, hopefully I can sell them to someone who will race them hard.

I will stay active in the RC stuff by helping a local, 13 year old, talent to the top. We will be running Capricorn from 2016 on.

Btw, sale topic for everything is online: http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...l#post14365752

You can use the stock rear for the front. I'm sure you know that already. As far a 3 hole, I've never seen them for a Mugen car. Is there a reason why you want them?

I used the stock 2-hole pistons for the front.
For a 3-hole piston you can use the Capricorn standard bore pistons, these are a perfect fit.

However, most of the time I ran two holes all around with 600-700 oils.
