The crew over at Mugen Seiki have just announced their latest 8th scale on-road car, the MRX5 WC-Spec edition. The WC-Spec edition comes with a bunch of upgrades to not only improve durability, but to also make it even more of an animal on the track. New chassis, rear arm mounts, front arms and bulkheads lead the list of changes.
Mugen Seiki are known for producing some of the most elite 8th scale off-roaders on the market, and today they have officially announced their new MBX7 Kit.

* 3mm A7075 hard anodized aluminum chassis

* Lightweight conical gears
* 5mm A7075 aluminum front shock tower
