Thanks for the info.

I don't know all the details, but it will have the same stuff as the Grainger Edition, with a different shock tower, and other goodies.

Do they change the drive train in Masami edition?

Thanks mike, i will, but right now our LHS doesn't have the sdw arms in stock...

could you clarify "steer better"? like more initial steering? or more mid to exit?



thanks - jason

I add extra thick washer (4mm) on the steering knuckle because I want to limit the the angle (up and down) movement on the turnbuckle to minimum. Use your imagination and creativity

On the carbon fibre steering plate I suggest to sandwich it with thin washers to avoid cracking.

I use Mugen MTX4 connectors and ball link connectors.

soz I've been away from my computer for a fww days, here are the (summarised ) grainger tips:
1. due to using the lower hole on the c-hub, the kit now comes with a 0.5mm spacer and a 1mm spacer to go on top of the steering block, to remove play. He also explains the handling differences witht he holes, "the upper hole gives more aggresive steering mid-corner"
2 THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! This regards the shocks. To put in a nutshell, trim 50% off the stem of the triangle piece, and put it in upside down. This allows more oil under the piston, and more grip (according to him!)
3. kit comes with RS-14 (3x1.2mm) pistons
4. rear hubs are built with a spacer that slots in before the inner bearing, this is because the rear driveshafts are different.
5. remove material from SDW arms
6. explains the ackerman differences, also whether to mount the links above or below the plate. Doesn't matter, but when running more than 1mm under susp. blocks, put them on top otherwise they will hit the susp. mount
7. removing play from steering plate: line bearing holes with thin glue
8.belt tension, firmer belt=more traction, looser causes drag
9. explains why battery strap isn't included
10. explains 0 offset hubs, give more steering

That's the included grainger booklet summarised a lot, it then includes all of his BRCA setups.
The car is great, comes with 2 spools etc but there are a few problems
1. in the diff/pulley building bag, which have 2 pulley bearings and 2 diff bearings. I was given 4 pulley bearings, which have a smaller hole. With these the diff can't be built, luckily I have old diffs around and used some old bearings.
2. The instruction book isn't any different, and it's only through experience I knew how to build the locked centre for example.
But it's great!
