For any of you guys using the blade type rear sway bar I have a question. What setting is closest to stock. I think the stiffest setting would be perpindicular to the ground. THanks for the help!

You're correct, when the Blades are perpendicular to the ground is when the Rear Blade Sway Bar is at it's stiffest setting. That is also when it is closest to the Stock Sway Bar.

Noted that the word "closest" is used because, the Stock Sway Bar would still be stiffer than the Blade S/B even when the Blade S/B would be at it's stiffest settting.

That was a Typographical error.

Ok thanks. I was about to get pissed. I'm about to upgrade to the "R" and then I see a "K" version. LOL

Hi guys, I am assembling my MRX-4R and I am lost on a few things. There was a single yellow page titled "supplement manual" that was included with the documentation in the kit. On that page were some assembly instructions which differed from the normal manual and I can't decide which way is correct.

Do you guys assemble your MRX-4R the way the supplement manual says or the way the original manual says? There are some small differences and I have never built one of these cars and I want to do it the right way.

Thanks.

build it to the yellow page, its referring to the new front uprights and the 1mm shim that must be installed under the steering rods i believe.

And two axle washers go on the front axle before you slide it into the up-rite bearings.

Hmm, I can't fit the pin through the hole in the universal when I add those two washers. Something isn't right. Any tips?

Don't put the shim on the other side. All the shims are put to wheel side.

Make sure the bearings are tucked in ( or plug in ) inside the steering upright correctly.

The wheel hub's pins for rear wheels and front wheels are different in length. Front is shorter.

Hey guys.. Is it possible that those are the older front uprights? That would explain why he can't use all the washers.

Well, here you can see the diagram on the supplement manual page I was talking about. I installed the washers every which way and it just wont work. I am stumped.

I dont have that car, and I have never looked at one closely, but its ovbious to me that the bearing is not pushed all the way in. Just lay the upright with the bearing facing down on a table and push on the hoe assembly, that should get the bearing all the way in.

Don't use too many shims. It will be too tight and it could damage the bearings. Use 1 shim on CVD side and 1 or 2 shims on outside.

im looking closely at the photo, it looks to me as if the bearing is not seated properly, try making it rest flush with the upright.
it seemed to fit ok on mine.
