Mugen Seiki Rules




Check out the new Nitro Rally car. I want to see how it is compared to the Kyosho DRX. I love WRC and I am planning to get one as a fun car.

http://www.hpieurope.com/kit-info.php?lang=de&partNo=106950

Some of the Key points that scores over the Kyosho are:

1. Hex hardware, Kyosho has philips screws, I hate that. So wrenching is easier.
2. Water proof servos and battery tray, must for Rally car, to get some realistic running
3. Sway bars, to handle well on a proper RC track
4. Rear mud gaurds to keep off small stones. My Mugen has it and I love that, keeps the rear drive shafts relatively clean
5. Licensed body and tires, for that scale realism. Kyosho body looks nice, but its not the real one. This Abu Dhabi ford is the real body and Michelin tires. I am not a great fan of the Ford, but its almost real. I love Subaru, but sadly they are no longer in WRC. Would love to see a Citroen body soon.
6. Most importanty based on a tough MT/ST platform.
7. Aluminium shock towers, Kyosho has plastics.

Hope the price is also great. Above the Bullet and lesser than Trophy will be great.

And I believe the Bullet line's driveline will drop in with ease.... That'll make E- conversions possible. I'm not sure rally cars should be electric though....

I like electric too, but love that realism in Rally because they resemble the real thing. So I prefer nitro in Rally.
