The car will do everything a little bit quicker. Makes the front end of the car more aggressive with no set up changes. Cut your arms, space out the rear shocks, don't change your set up and go run it. Test and tune.

281 CI ?? destroke a 289 ?? Trying to give the chevy's a fightin' chance

Shortening the rear of the car will make the car twitchy nervous ...
try just shortening the front with the removable clip. Of course try it long and then shorten it in the front and see if you want more ??

HELL NO I'M NOT DE-STROYING anything with push rods. 4.6 modular engine, 04 GT PONY. Stopped racin Chevy's when I found out the "bow tie" on the grill was really the "BAND-AID" holding it together.

Anybody else's opinion on the extra short wheelbase mod? TEST and TUNE.

Default Race set up info...

Good morning,

We recently raced at the Kamikaze Invitational held in Crystal Park last May 16-17th. Lots of fun, with guys flying in from other states for this event. I believe the 120 entry limit was reached.

Mugen TQd both the 1:10th touring car and 1:8th open class, thanks to Mike Swauger. Mugen also took top honors in both classes after 45 minute mains. Results and more race info can be found here:

Kamikaze Invitational Race May 16 and 17 2009

and

Anyway, for our local guys who run the Mugen MRX4-X, here is the set up I ran that weekend. The car was fast and so much fun to drive. Enjoy and see you all at the track.

Hello guys,

what is your experience with the eccentric hubs on the bulkheads when turned up or down? I know there were already a few posts on this board concerning this but I can't imagine why the mounting position of the one-way/solid axle should change the car's driving behavior.

So what does the car in your opinion, when:

- the one-way is mounted up
- the one-way is mounted low

- the solid axle is mounted up
- the solid axle is mounted low

And WHY does it chance the feeling of the car (if it does change anything at all)?


Greets,
Michl

I think it means "Constant Pressure Device." Probably some sort of regulator on the pressure line.
