Greyscale Racing have released their new 1/28 competition pan chassis, the MRCG1.1. The MRCG1.1 is the highly-anticipated successor to the original MRCG, a car that helped revolutionize the 1/28 racing scene. Built on the same proven layout as the original car, the 1.1 features a 1.5mm woven graphite chassis, geometry updates throughout the car and a refined version of the original Virtual centre Pivot rear suspension that makes the car even stronger, faster, and easier to drive and tune.
Greyscale Racing have announced the upcoming release of the MRCG, their new 1/28 pan chassis conversion kit. Based on Kyosho’s venerable Mini-Z MR-02, the MRCG adds 1.5mm quasi-isotropic graphite throughout, a new rear suspension design, an extremely low CG and polar moment of inertia, as well as a 15% weight reduction over the MR-02 to bring 1/12 performance to a class less than half the size! The chassis also features several other small innovations, such as a quick-release battery system and true Mini-Z body compatability to preserve the aesthetic appeal of the Mini-Z series. The MRCG is compatible with both Mini-Z electronics or modular electronics, and requires 4 AAA batteries and a 130-can motor.
Back in July we showed you a CAD image of the Greyscale Racing MRCG project which was intended from the very beginning to create the most effective chassis to ever compete in 1/28 RC car racing as well as to be a user-friendly, versatile machine that maximizes the driver’s potential on any given track. Greyscale have now released the first images of the prototype which is based on Kyosho’s proven Mini-Z MR02 platform, and it is a completely new chassis from the ground up that combines smart engineering with specially-chosen materials to gain an edge in the budding market of 1/28 open-class competition.

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.
