hoping to hear what u guys have to say about this... if i'm looking for more steering, and using the WOS front hubs... should i have the nipple facing up or down?

i know the only way to find out is to experiment... but i dont have the time... working saturday and have a race on sunday.

thanks in advance

sam
theoritically yes it should, BUT if your car wont turn doing this wont istantly give you steering, Itll help but wont be the cure all.....
I had nipples facing down at one point and a good steering, swaped it the other way, and got even more steering

the WOS front steering hubs comes with a #1 and #2.

So... if i buy 2 sets, theoretically, I could put a #1 on both left and right to havve more turn-in in both directions. or is my thinking too simplistic?

#1 and #2 got to be used together so that left and right are symmetrical...and it'll affect both directions.

If there is a EVO version coming out, it will probably just include the V2 rear end.

That will be nice!
But I would say as of now, it will be the same car, it's just the old saying "If it ain't, broke why Fix it!" they might be planning on some improvements and maybe there will be a something new in the near future, who knows!

Default Mugen Belts on 966?

Do any Mugen belts fit the 966? I just found a bag of MRX4 belts and wondered if any can be used before I get rid of them.

I'm still waiting on the part numbers of the bushings and connectors used with the new bulkheads. The ones that tie them together

Pass you soon...

Hey Marcos,

Merry Christmas,

I am selling Team Titan belts in my shop and according to TT, the front and the middle belt are the same for MRX4 and 966.

Take care..
