Yeh they all looked the same to me at first but, then I got my car out to see if an upgrade was possible ( not worth it !! )

Yeah I noticed the pipe on the graphite. Spose you could screw it to the chassis anyway.

I can't believe even the rear diff is different !!

Looks like the flywheel is smaller and the engine mounts lower too !

The liner is a 5 port mod - think it was j-tech.

I think you could call it a 3 port now

My Pet hate - notice where the pipe mounts to the car...... It mounts to the upper deck. I've seen a V-One-S car (that have the same mounting style) damage an upper deck on a side hit because the pipe is pushed it. If the upper deck is graphite (which looks like its is) then one good hit and it will possible snap. Im not sure why they didn't leave it and mount it to the chassis, the room is there.
Different.

I feel kind of stupid for asking this, but i'm setting my ProSpec up for its first race and I need to know how to adjust the front camber. How do you do it?

put an allen key through the wheel and turn the pivot ball in or out
tip if you turn top in 1/2 thurn bottom out 1/2 this will keep tracking the same so do both the same amount but opposite.
your bset using a Hudy set up system

Actually, your better off only adjusting the top pivot ball on the front, and the inside pivot ball on the rear. Adjusting these will not alter the track width (unless you make huge huge changes in camber)

Back to the original question, turning the pivot ball in will add more camber (ie more camber +2, +3). Turning the screw out will remove camber.

Camber is fairly simply to understand, you need to aim for even tyre wear. If the front tyres are wearing on the outside add more camber so it wears down the middle and vice versa. Camber should be used to obtain even tyre wear front and rear only.

On the subject of camber, intresting article in Magizine by Australia's Top Driver Mugen/Novarossi driver with the setup tips on the MTX-2. He has to run 5 degree negative camber on the rear to get even tyre wear - And I thought I was the only one!! This is also running stiff springs (whites)

Alright, I turned out the bottom ball, but now there is slop in the wheels. Are the balls suppose to lock into the hubs, or is the loose play just the way it is?
