Mugen announces a new tool line called ProSpec. Check my site or theirs for details.

I will check those situation out. I was begining to get a little fustrated with this car but what can i expect with some many changes at once. Is it possible to have a tweakin the chassis when it's new? How would that take place?
I need to clarify something. When I said chassis tweak, it doesn't always mean the chassis is bent. Sometimes it does but left and right shocks on one end of the car that are not built exactly the same or the weight in one corner of the car that is heavier/lighter and you can get "chassis tweak". You can see this when you do the lift test or use a tweak station. Sorry for the confusion. Your chassis could be perfectly straight but still show some chassis tweak.

To answer your question, yes you can. If the chassis is stamped the tweak or slight bend can be put in during the stamping process.

Default Mugen Oils and Greases

Do you use Mugen oil on your Air Filters? I have no other brands to compare to but it doesn't seem overly 'sticky'? The part # is B0302. And does anyone know what the empty bottle is for?!
How often are you supposed to re oil, or just with new filters? Thanks!

Since no one has answered....

Air filter oil is supposed to be 'sticky'. I use Air Filter oil made for Motor cross bikes, that stuff is sticky.

Don't apply too much grease (unless u run on a dirty track). Im pretty sure the empty bottle is to dip the airfilter into - ie soak it. I re-oil mine everytime I clean the filter.

I am currently using HPI Mercedes CLK GTR body, I used the following bodies before and I like the CLK GTR the most because it gives me really really good overall downforce, especially the front end. Initial turn in respond is fast.

BMW M3GT this one is pretty good but front end respond is not as good as CLK GTR.

CLK DTM this one has good front end respond compare with M3GT but still not as good as GTR.

S-Class, P.O.S. body but it looks good.

If I had to rank them then it would be 1. CLK GTR, 2. M3GT, 3. CLK DTM.

Currently I use the HPI Mercedes CLK GTR................BUT my favorite body by far is the HPI Honda Prelude. IMHO it's better than the Merc CLK GTR in all aspects especially in the steering department.

Another good one is the HPI Merc CLK DTM 2000. Neutral handling and "DTM Racer" good looks.

I like the Stratus... I personally have not been able to tell the differences between the makes (proline, hpi... ) For me it has good steering and neutral handling feel...


I want to try a different body, soon... has anybody had good results with the skyline??

treat this empty bottle as buy one get one free !!

you dont need to soak the foam with filter fuild, just apply the filter oil onto the foam and make sure you will not over do it. remove excessive oil with tissue and make sure no excessive filter oil running around.
