Correct, the U4256 would be the correct hub .. The biggest difference in this setup is that it uses a 3mm bearing on the inside to better accommodate the slightly longer shaft ..

The Peripheral Dampeners were just released today; those should work well on asphalt.. I wouldn't expect anything too huge -probably just some upgraded bits .. The current car is pretty good already ..

Anyone tried the peripheral dampers? How's it compared to the stock ones?

I have a shot at a good deal on an original MI5 (non Evo). I am looking for parts sources and don't see anyone having arms (wishbones) in stock, even Shumi site say's part number doesn't exist. Do the Evo arms and mounts work on a non Evo car?
Are most other consumable parts,Hub's, Knuckles, Arm mouldings the same?

Can a non Evo car be "updated" or not worth the cost?
