The pins come in part # T0802. Have you tried Speedline, NitroHouse, or Ace Hardware Hobbies? I can usually find anything I need at one of the 3. As for the 2.6mm screws, forget it. I've called Mugen directly and asked for them and was told "we don't sell them seperately". After MUCH looking & measuring, I found some 2.8x 14 mm screws at a hardware store (by accident too) about 20 miles from me. They fit, but were VERY tight. Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

www.nitrohouse.com
www.ace-hobbies.com

You have to call these guys. MANY parts are not listed on the sites.

You might try MR METRIC in San Jose... they might have the screws you're looking for.

Default Re: ride height

Adjust the collars on the shocks to adjust ride height.

use the upstops and down stops to adjust the limits of suspension travel..... (I dont use them, some peeps do)

Hmmm push!!! that means your understeer.... try to position your front shocks to the highest or should i say the first hole on top! to get more front grip

thanks SioKoy

Tried that but not alot off diferance. i thought you lot called understeer push!!
What dff set ups do you all use on rubber tyres. just wondering if my front diff is too tight the TC3 nitro lads run loose set ups here and they turn alot better than me!!
Other thing i might try is less rear toe in got 2.5mm at moment but by go to 1.5!!

I run 10,000 in the front diff versus the 30,000 stock and silicone in the negitive diff. Removed the 1 way, prospec kit. Right at the moment I have oversteer or loose. Back loves to visit the front on off power conditions I am running rubber tires (tyres ) Treadz3B . I will post my setup if you want.

Ok have you tried positioning your rear shocks to the lowest hole? Try Front Shocks at the top of the hole and the rear shocks to the lowest.... Positioning your Rear shocks to the lowest hole will cause less traction so i guess you'll loose that understeer push!

I used to have the same problem. MTX-2 has this problem oversteer!

To remove oversteer.... Use front diff oil at 100T in weight then position your front shocks to the lowest hole then the front droop should be +2 and the rear +6. Rear diff use 7T in weight and position your rear shocks to the mid whole or until there's no oversteer

The best way to setup your ride height is adjust your droop!

Use Hudy droop gauge then setup your droop to +2 in front and +6 at the rear. Shock positioning should not affect the ride height bec. it tends to pressure the springs which is not a good one.

To setup your droop:

1. Remove the shocks and your stabilizers
2. Suspension arms should be free from binding
3. Put your car at the Setup block or HUDY block or Droop Block
4. Check your chasis if there's a sway movement (If there is that means you need to replace the chasis and it means your chasis has a bent portion
5. Adjust your droop using droop gauge.
6. Set your front droop to +2 and the Rear +6
7. Install the stabilizers then check your droop again (It should be +2 front and +6 rear. If there's any changes in your droop adjust the stabilizer bars until it reaches the desired droop)
8. Install your shocks. Set the tension of the springs to the normal tension.... Setting up springs with pressure will cause no good dumping!
9. Check your droop again! it still should be the same setup +2 Front and +6 at the rear.

I hope this will help and once you've done it the right way you'll find your car with the best movement. More power on turnings and it will loose oversteer or understeer.
