Eric Dankel already broke the news in June to RedRC that new Mugen would be released this year two months before the World Championship held in Florida in late October. At a guess it maybe very soon

Well, I have just bought MTX6R Anyway - my first racing with Mugen is finished. I used stock setup, oils and springs. I am amazed how well it handles, grips and brakes like hell. I used untreated Matrix tires. Had some unscrewed screws, some minor clutch problems. Final A - lost due to broken front belt Probably to aggressive driving or something has been catched between belt and diff...
I am very satisified with my first laps/racing. I was able to keep pace in top 3 which was impossible with my previous Tamiya chassis.
Still struggling to have full 5 minutes on my T1202 even with lean setup @ 120C

Looking for thoughts about the mtx6 and mtx6r. I'm about to purchase a mtx6r but also have a new original kit. Is there any reason to keep the first release kit? Did mugen change anything in the R version that ended up being a step back in any area? How about the materials and construction, are they still the same quality and made in Japan?

The biggest change with the R is the hard plastics imo. I haven’t had any issues with durability with them and the car seems more responsive to changes. I would say build your kit but with the hard parts and you will be plenty happy with it. The hard parts are the front lower arms, rear arms and rear uprights.

So, there's no obvious advantage in the original Mtx6 after all these years? Is the R version solid without any known issues due to the changes?

Does anyone know if Mugen still manufacture their kits and parts in Japan?

I haven’t had any issues with my R. It’s a solid car.

I’ve hrard talks about a 7, but nothing has been announced. I believe everything is still manufactured in japan. Mugen’s plastics are second to none I don’t think there is a more durable car on the market.

3rd Final A! For the first time podium in nitro racing.
Qucik question - have you tried different springs than stock ones? Any thoughts on that?

I have tested and went back to the black springs. Better to try different rollbars.

Amain, absolutehobbyz and nitro house are where I usually get stuff here in the states if I don’t get it from Mugen racing. Not sure if they ship overseas though. Try rcmart. I think they’re in Hong Kong.

Where are you located?

In Europe RMV is the way to go.

And here in the US there are a ton of retailers, my go to for years has been Ashford Hobbies, they have a great parts inventory.
