Might have been black roll-bars available but you can always spray them

FWIW, A certain somebody at the Reedy Race would paint our springs with Tamiya PC White or Pactra White Spray paint. He was so dialed we thought, why stop at springs, sway bars, etc...heck why not paint our own white pulleys, shock bodies, tires, esc, wires, etc...ah heck, let's just spray paint the whole thing white and call it "UBER FACTORY"

Yes, but they are actually for the TA05 but fit the MSX just fine.

Lovely black colour - I sold my set last month with my MSX.

This will raise the roll center. Typically, as a rule of thumb, adjusting spacers on your upper links is more for fine tuning as opposed to spacers under the toe blocks which will cause a bigger change. Having said that, I haven't really adjusted roll centers too much on the car to experiment myself.

They've been released; Jason Reid had 10 sets for sale a few weeks ago, I didn't buy any though. Looked really good - nicer than the white I think

Yes, they were available at http://stores.ebay.com/jasons-store but it appears that they have all been sold.

Ok I found out where to setup the swaybars and how to measure the droop, Jun method. But I assume I measure from the top of treaded part closet to the wheel hub? Thanks.

Default Tamiya 630 flanged bearings

G'Day all,

What is the size of the 630 flanged bearings as I am having difficulty finding them downunder. They are from a steering linkage on a 415MS.
Thanks
