What the best parts to use for rebuilding your diffs. Thrust bearing and diff balls.

Thanks,

Hmmm, why would they change that?

Lowering the outer pick up point lowers the Roll Centre, so that's pretty much whats happened there.

Jupp, know that, but you could just add a 0.5mm washer on the inside, same thing!!
But, if they lowered the the pin height, we would be able to even feel the difference

Less washers, less weight

Hi Guys,
Iam having a problem with my MSX steping the rear end out on initial turn in, I've tried various set ups and still have the same problem.

Any idea's ?

Paul.

Actually, got home and checked this. The axle IS 0.5mm lower, got my calipers out and measured from the bottom of the hub. This means rear droop settings will be different on the MRE to MSX. The MRE would have more droop if set off the same arm height. (ie 4 on a gauge of the MSX is about 3.5 on the MRE)

Might contribute to the extra steering...

Regards
Ed

Hey Ed,

Thats what I thought
Lowering the axle height would actually give more traction!!

Because the steering is moved back, the chassis will be slightly stiffer.... have you noticed that Ed?? (Harder to "twist the car" )

Also the new steering with the loooooong links and all, should give more steering as well.

Yup, I think it's all combination of the steering links and the changes to the rear. Have to admit though, hadn't noticed the car being any stiffer, but that does make sense.
