To my knowledge the WC had from the start the front swaybar. You are sure it is a WC? To me it sounds it is a normal 5.

I think this is what he has, the WC Limited Edition that was released after Pietsch won the worlds.

The WC-Spec was released before the 2013 Worlds with the updated chassis and front wire rollbar.

Just installed the new Pitsea rear upper arm assembly and lower arms that are expected to make their way onto the new mrx 6. Can't say what it is like compared to before as I have only recently started running my Mugen and only with the modification installed. But boy is it a great handling car... Tool me a while to realise!

Yes I have the Wc limited Edition. Is it worth converting over to the sway bar front end? What is the word on The MRX6

the lwr arms flex quite a bit with that mod so just be aware things might snap or be inconsistent, im sure when the new lwr arms come out it'll be better

You do need the new front bulkheads (lower and upper part), front body plate, the wire with linkages and bearings and the new front lower wishbones. I think this can be up to 70 dollar I think and I am not sure if it is that much better than the old 5 anti roll bar.

By new lower arms do you mean these was actually very lucky to score a set. Comparison to the original arms I'd as you say much thicker and beefier than the original items.

Powder, dust substance on a new shoe is normal for the first initial run in of the clutch shoe...when its thicker almost like wood shavings thats bad. Polish the bell with a dremel and polishing drum if needed to

Seen on Pietch's car during last round of ENS in Fiorano...I think they will soon available for everyone.... I tested a camberlink with the old brackets and i didn't like the feeling with the car, i felt it like to have more rear grip but also it will loose more drastically...
