Chassis Focus – Takaaki Shimo


Chassis – Mugen MTX-6 (R)
Engine – OS Speed 1202
Fuel – MLC
Tires (handout) – Hotrace
Radio/Servo – Sanwa
Body – SRC Spark

Remarks – OS Speed and Mugen Seiki development driver Takaaki Shimo is running a pre production version of what could be an upcoming “R” version of the Japanese car, that features the same chassis seen on Robert Pietsch’s car, prototype low friction pulleys, hard suspension arms and rear hubs, a lower front shock tower and a 15g front weight designed to be fitted on the front bumper. Despite carrying a head from the 1201 OS Speed engine, his car is powered by the all new version 1202 that only shares the crankcase with the previous version.
