The mount with the 2 positions looks nice. I wouldn't mind having the option to lengthen the upper arm for more steering.

I'm curious how it will work with the optional outer pin position.....
It's gotta weigh more than the plastic counter part.

The other aftermarket part I want to try out is the KM brake pads, mainly for the carbon fiber look...

These type of options might be worth a try if you go to a lot of different tracks which I don't. I pretty much go to 1 to 2 tracks on a regular basis..
the inner hole is for more aggressive steering the outer is for the opposite effect

Although the MTX-4 is already good but I always get curios when things like this pop up....
Sorry, I don't own that ...., I was using the word "I" only for an example.

Everything in my car are still original except these items:

Is that on power or off power?
Or is it an all round steering gain?

Inside pins should have more over all traction but the outer pin should be more responsive I think.....Sometimes it's better to just try it since some of these adjustments does not react like you would expect.....
