Sorry to bother everyone, but I've got a quick question. Does ANYONE have a front spool available yet? I know HPI was supposed to release one, but I've yet to hear anything more. I was also told that Speedtech carried one, but Steve told me no. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Ron Meloni

....Or you could order from the UK, either direct from Titanium Racing, or any decent model shop will be able to get it for you and ship worldwide.

If you are making changes to the roll centre at the pivot blocks than by making it higher (more spacers), that will give you more grip. If you are changing it at the inner camber link then less spacers = more grip. Jonathan

I thought by adding spacers at the pivot block, you are making the car roll less thus less grip.
But reducing inner camber washer will increase camber change thus more grip.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

But the last time I checked with Japan Mugen Factory, as our MRX3 comes with 2 type of rear pivot blocks one higher, one lower. The Factory told me using higher will reduce roll and if the track has high traction, the performace will increase. But on low grip tracks, you want the car to roll more to generate more grip so better to use the lower ones.

Did I interpret what they tell me wrongly

Help
