Just been listening to an interview with David Spashett from the euros, gave a very informative chat about the MSX.
Basically, David explained the differences between the MS and MSX, which ammounts to easy access bulkheads (which most of us could tell already), and a lower CoG (probably less well realised). He went onto explain differences between the MS and MSX setups, which mainly centred around making the suspension softer to allow the car to roll more, generating more grip. For this, most setups run in hole 2 on the wishbones, and softer springs... This also gives better balance
Interestingly, he mentions that all the suspension components are the same as the MS (all the LWT), but so are the shock towers... I thought that the kit would come with a new front tower.
Also, he mentioned how that most of the team drivers prefer this over the MS, with it possible to feel small adjustments better. David himself definitely seems to like it... to quote
"I do believe they've made a step forward"
So not just been done just to allow easier access to diffs, but a step forward in performance too.
The interview is deffiently worth listening too... it's on the orion site.
