Billy probably has them, but I think he is closed the rest of the week because he is going to the NORRCA Nats.
I've been taking a little time off racing. Time for some golfing and other stuff. The next big race I go to probably won't be until Cleveland. I want to check that out this year. Should be a lot of fun.

I've got some of the anti roll bar ballstuds for the front camber mod, how exactly are people doing it?.

Cut the lugs off the top of the castor block, putting some washers under the head of the screw then fitting?

I like the look of the little plates that were used at the worlds to, I assume, replicate the rear camber mod. I'll try and make some up, as opposed to hacking the top off the toe in block(which I'd no doubt make a hash of).

If someone can please explain in detail, what they've done, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks.

Simon, I have never heard of doing the camber mods with the anti-roll bar ends. Does anywhere in NZ import Tamiya parts? If so, tamiya makes a kingpin/ballstud for the 414M that works. You just need to widen the top hole in the castor block with a drill, and use tamiya ballcups, which you will have to file a bit of the top off of.

Sorry Josh,
I mean the metal ballstud that has a long smooth shank, then is threaded.
The SP kits have them to mount the front shocks to the lower A arm, then clip the upper anti roll bar onto the ball.

Default Rear Arms

I've read on some numerous sites that people are using the old pro rear arms instead of the new ones on the special. How does changing the new arms to the pro arm affect handling? What are the charactaristics that i should expect?

The old rear arms give the car more traction and make it more consistent on bumpy track.

Oh I see what you mean. Is that long smooth shank the right diameter?

Looking at the inside of the shock pivot balls, it looks as thought the diameter would fall quite a bit short, hence alot of play in the steering.

Sorry Chris, I don't think anyone who posts regularly here has the regular MR-4. It depends alot on electronics etc. You want to aim for just over 1500 grams to be safe.

Het Steve do you have any of the King Pins with the ball ends on top? I believe the part number is ZR-007.
