from what i have been told they are not oil holes but there for cleaning you can oil races from the outside no probs.

The instructions state its possible to inject oil in the holes on pages 7 & 11. I think it seems odd. I wouldn't think of lubing them from there IMO. Maybe for a quick shot of oil with no time to tear it down I assume.

I see what you mean ez i have also just read the manual online and yeah it does state that strange really your still better to oil the bearings outer race than dropping oil through that hole, im sure a more detailed translation will appear soon

I'm early in the build, but I have to say it's evident that Mugen really took steps to lighten the car where it's possible.

Big changes vs. the 5R!

Thanks Tony. I'm trying to put together an order for Lundsford and am getting conflicting information. Can some confirm that the turnbuckles needed are: 2ea. 5mmX35mm(rear camber)
2ea. 4mmX44mm(steering)
1ea. 3mmX35mm(servo)
