I have even been running the short arms outdoors lately, FASTER!!
I 3rd that ...on carpet rubber anyways, was using the regular long arm on asphalt ...never tried the short arms.

Which suspension blocks do you use to run the short arms? All numbers for the blocks get confusing.

2.2mm Sway bar was a prototype and has never been made production. You can make you own. Good Luck with that

And when you ask for parts, you ALWAYS ask for "New-Type"

As for me...I get to run "Old-Type"

I just loaded my new ipod with some junk so I can be anti-social in Vegas! J/K...if anybody needs help, please introduce yourself. I promise that I am usually not as busy as I look.

I use the Stock MSX MRE blocks for the short arms, just widen the car out by 1.0mm shim on the hex front and rear.
The blocks are 1B - 1A in the front and 1XB - 1D in the rear....

Your welcome... I guess Japan will be fast. Since they are in our Asia Pac region.
