Greyscale Racing MRCG

Greyscale Racing MRCG

Coming soon from Greyscale Racing is the MRCG, a pan chassis aimed at open-class racers who need a lower CG, more responsive handling, and more tuning options than a standard Mini-Z. Based on the Mini-Z MR02, the car features a mid motor layout and narrow battery configuration for more responsive handling as well as dual flex plate suspension, similar to that seen in the Mini-Z F1 cars. This is a true race car, with the ability to adjust the weight bias by adjusting the placement of the cells, while the front end of the car allows adjustment of the ride height, independant of the spring preload.
