And if you can get one of the handful made they demand a pretty penny, last one I was offered was more then an Mi5 kit was worth. Seems semi rare unobtainable pieces are very collectible.

Check with some of the smaller/ custom aftermarket companies. I know there was a place that will make one but I can't remember who it is right now.

Camber links are at the outermost hole. (shortest) Probably stock setup
Arms looks like triangles.. Probably stock setup
I have the latest generation steering rack. Lets call it the traditional one.

I've attached a copy of my current setup for the Mi5 Evo...it doesn't actually stray too far from the kit carpet setup. I added the 1mm shims behind the front wheels to help combat traction rolling but you could remove them and gain a bit more steering, especially going into corners. I'd also recommend the 2.5 degree rear arms unless you are running on a truly low-grip surface. 3 degrees will really lock in the rear of the car and not allow it to rotate, especially coming out of corners on-power.

Let me know if you need any clarification on anything!

Cheers!

They are 1mm shims that go between the wheel hex and the wheel..

http://www.racing-cars.com/pp/Produc...ist/U4321.html

You will see them highlighted on the setup sheet to the left of the front shock tower "box" and are called wheel washers.. it shows the Hex and front hub in the diagram.
