Hi!

What's the difference between the old and the new front upper arms? How can we tell witch one's are?

What size do you guys use for trimming the tires? 67/74?

Regards!

The older ball link (H0136 B) had an outside diameter of 6mm on the shank. The part the turn buckle threads into. The new ball link (H2119B) has an outside diameter of 7mm. The new upper arms have a slight hump on the top and bottom of the a arm where the ball link seats into.

The newer front upper arm camber link is bigger than the older arm. The part number is the same, but the letter 'B' is at the end. As far as tire size, this may vary. If the track has a high tire wear then cut bigger, i.e (67 front, 74 rear). If the tire wear is low, then 65 front / 72 rear may be the ideal size.

Anybody know where I can find availability of the WC edition?

Any news on an upgrade kit being available (MRX-5R/X)?

Thanks!

I am just wondering how long the bearings on the front wheels should last on a MRX5.
I changed every bearing on the hole car before this season started, i have been driving 2 days at my track (almost 1gal of fuel) and now it feels like the bearings are worn out already.
Anybody had problems with this. Is there a fix for this problem?

Agreed, but sometimes OEM's release a new kit containing additional option parts...

Thanks!

And with that you think all thos OEM's make the car better? It does make the car look different but better? I can not see what a CSO chassis, Gears, carbon or nice colored aluminium damper stay can improve to the car.

Hmm. Bearings are Mugen, and track is not that dirty. No trouble with the other bearings on the car.

Initially i thought this was happening from the bearings being exposed to the rush of dirty air under the body when the wheels were turned, either left or right. So i made little Shields out of Lexan and bolted them to the front uprites. It continued to happen. Turns out it was me. When your blowing off the car keep the compressed air away from the uprite bearings, both front and rear...
