MRX6 X 1/8TH 4wd Nitro RC Race Car
Mugen Seiki is proud to introduce the new MRX6X 1/8th nitro on-road kit. The MRX6X is inspired and based off the products used by Mugen Seiki driver Shoki Takahata to capture the 2019 IFMAR 1:8 On-Road World Champion hosted by Steel City R/C Speedway. The features of the MRX6X help improve steering, rear traction, drivetrain efficiency, and drivability.
History of the MRX6X started with ideas and improvements from Robert Pietsch. Robert proposed his ideas to Mr. Sanada and the two worked together in preparation for the 2019 IFMAR World Championship. Prototype parts were made and testing began with Robert and Shoki on a number of differentt tracks and conditions. Testing with Robert and Shoki provided promising results! Shoki’s comments to Sanada were very clear and precise about the new parts. This created a lot of excitement for the Mugen Seiki Team heading into the IFMAR World Championship. Confidents in the new parts was high because of the improved the handling of the already competitive MRX6R platform.
Mugen Seiki made the trip to Steel City Raceway for the 2019 IFMAR World Championship with the new parts and prototype MRX6X. The results speak for themselves with Shoki, Robert, and JJ showing amazing pace throughout practice, qualifying, and the finals. In the one hour final Shoki drove the MRX6X to become the 2019 IFMAR World Champion!!
After winning the World Championship, we continued testing to finalize the production MRX6X. Mr. Sanada, Robert Pietsch, and Shoki Takahata did more testing and made modifications to the prototype parts with various materials and thickness to make the production MRX6X even better then the prototype vehicle used at Steel City Raceway. Each part was tested one at a time on various tracks with different characteristics to make sure it worked well for all track conditions. In the end, the features of the MRX6X help improve steering, rear traction, drivetrain efficiency, and drivability.
Front suspension improvements:
– New front suspension geometry includes new front uprights and aluminum-bearing holders give you more overall steering and have a more precise steering feel.
The shape of the upper front arm also changed to accommodate the current bodies on the market.
– The new front shock tower and lower shock mounts have new geometry that increase steering in the middle to the exit of the turn.
– New front drive shaft allows increase steering angles and more overall steering.
– The front wheel lever (H2231) is standard on the MRX6X and allows easier installing/removing wheels.
Rear suspension improvements:
– New rear suspension geometry includes new rear upper A-arms and rear upper arm plate help improve rear traction.
– The rear wheel lever (H2232) is standard equipment on the MRX6X and allow easier installing/removing wheels.
0.8 pinion & spur gears:
– 0.8M pinion & spur gear.
The new 0.8M pinions and spur gears use a finer pitch that will increase drive train efficiency.
On track you’ll notice increased acceleration as well as increased run-time.
