The front one way bearing insert can be locked down by adding a wipe or two of super glue to the area of the front upper bulkhead where the two pieces make contact. Just be sure you let the glue dry before you put it on.
Tweak. Check the stuff Ralph mentioned, in addition clearence the radio box with a dremel and make sure your battery is not making contact with the back of the fuel tank sump.
Radio stuff Ive found. Remove your radio/servo bracket and look very closely at the head of the front lower steering servo mounting screw and the rear edge of the front lower bulk head. There may not be contact with the car at rest, but I keep finding "glitching cars" with these area's polished from contact. The other issue I have seen is the screw that runs thru the brake linkage slider that threads thru the deck mounted throttle/brake horn gets set up corectly with play to allow smooth movement. However when the link to the servo horn gets attached the piviot ball is over tightened and while running it will pull the threads in the deck mounted arm and put the hole enchilada in a bind, servo amp draw goes thru the roof and the reciever freaks out...

Thumbs up

When I assembled mine back in October before the Regionals, I noticed the slack in
the side belt and just added an additional Addjustable Belt Tensioner / YBSlow!
Worked just fine with no issues....

Nice , I still believe the original set-up without another tensioner will work. After I built mine, the tension on my belts seem fine. It took a little time to adjust it to the way I like my belts to feel. Nevertheless, I'm sure when I take it out for an official spin everything will hold up .

your not kidding, You might have well said that about your MRX-5 that probably won't hit the track at least until next year 2012, LMAO. I guess that's why you call yourself be smooth, until you hit the track, then we can call you bruff.......LMAO

Who on here is going to the world? Did anyone whom post on here regularly raced at the pre-worlds? I have some questions?

1. How is the tire wear on the homestead circuit. What shores where mainly used?

2. Did anyone get a chance to see if, Pietsch, Swauger, Fukuda, Rick V or anyone else use the floating or fixed radio option.

3. Did anyone get the setup sheets from the front running Mugen drivers.

P.S Any inside will be a great help for us drivers going to Homestead for the first time. Thanks.
