Even if it is for fine tuning its no good. you try to adjust the left and it offsets the right. Give me a simple front droop so that i can make both the left and right side equal. I have been given so many ways to try and adjust it so that both sides are equal before you adjust the droop screws and it never works. Somehwere down the line it starts to effect the opposite side. Sometimes "fine tuning" is more trouble than its worth. give me a simple screw to adjust that will do its job and i'm happy.
The problem with the current front end of the MTX3 is that the droop screws come in contact on the front sway bar holder. People have a hard time getting the droop settings even from left to right while getting the sway bar evenly tweaked. The problem I have is that when you have it all set correctly-left and right droop and you tighten down on the cam screw, your droop settings change a little. It's almost impossible to get the front cam screw tightened so that it's perfect-left and right droop with the sway bar cam adjustment screw tight. It would be alot easier if the droop screws made contact on the suspension arms directly, independent of the sway bar holders (as on the older Serpent cars like the Vector and Veteq) It would then be alot easier to set up your front end:
1. Disconnect front sway bar and shocks.
2. Set left and right side droop equally.
3. Connect front sway bar and adjust cam screw so that left and right side are even (at same droop settings) by adjusting cam.
4. Re-connect shocks.
By the way, I am using the 3 Racing aluminum sway bar holders that have the cam adjustment on both sides. It makes it alot easier to adjust. And the fact that aluminum doesn't "squish" means that the settings don't change as much when you tighten down on the cam screws.
Whew! That whas alot of typing!
