Droop is the distance the chassis has to travel from its at rest position (ride height) to the point when the up travel screws hit the chassis and lift the wheels off of the surface the car is resting on.
So lets say your ride height was 7mm at rest and the chassis up travel screws were set to allow a droop movement of 6mm before the wheels are lifted from the surface.
If we raised ride height to 9mm and did not adjust the up travel screws your droop would now be 4mm.

Default Ball Links

Hi,

I'm looking for longer shock ball links to fit on the MRX5. Any ideas on which ones I can use - are these longer than stock - H0855?

Yes the H0855 are the longest offered for that ball size. If you want to see it for yourself it's the same ball ends that are on your steering rods.

Chasing a set of steel engine mounts, does anyone have any they may sell? I know that i can buy brass engine mounts, but i am a little worried about the heat transfer or lack there of that the brass mounts may cause.

i really think after alluminium, brass is the next best material to transfer heat.
Many old Soldering Irons used to repair radiators were big brass ended Irons, heated by an Oxy torch. i never saw Cast iron ones, so just maybe something in that. not so much how long it takes to heat up, but more so the transfer of heat to melt the Silver Solder ? so maybe Brass is the way to go.

Agreed - brass conducts heat much better than steel.

I'm wondering which kind of cars is pointing my choice:

- Serpent 966 TE v2
- Mugen MRX5

I'd like to know pros and cons, an honest and open discussion.

Thanks for your help.
