Hi Guys,

Not sure how many MBX-5 owners known about this:

Mugen Molded Carbon Fiber Stone Guards for MBX-5

We have a few of these in stock, and from talking to the Mugen folks, they can't keep these things in stock it might seem a bit overkill, however, they are incredibly light and just looks awesome on the car.

I saw the carbon stone guards, VERY sweet!
I wounder how they will hold up to a hard hit from BIG jumps or a Tbone??
It seems to be a bling bling that can be no advantage other then breaking.

The 0 block is full kickup - use this when your track is bumpy. Go with the -2 if your track is less bumpy and same for the -1. May have to try and see which works best for you.

In general, the more kickup you have, the more weight gets transfered to the front off throttle or during braking. You get less steering response and your chassis will compress more off throttle or during braking. Handling is improved on rougher tracks.

Vice versa for less kickup.

hmmm if you r talking about the front blocks, they are the inboard toe blocks. just stick with the -1.

antisquat is adjusted by using the bushings.

Well whatever method the mbx5 uses, the information is still the same for kickup settings.
