Anyone have any suggestions...

I'm thinking about putting a mugen adapter and pulley. I checked the mugen manual, and it looks the same. Does anyone know if the 2 speed shaft diameter is the same as shepherd's?? if it is, it should work.


Thanks
So you know Shepherd has revised the molds and are using different plastic now to fix the problem. The new pulleys are going to be out in a week. So the problems with this have been fixed.

Swaybars were in and on the way to the dealers now. The rear conversion kits are on the next order they were back ordered and the transponder mounts are also on the next order I believe along with the new gray clutch shoe.

No problem Nelson..You look comfortable with the car already.

I tried the new rear swaybar this past weekend and it worked pretty well. The car responds well to minor changes in the angles of the blades.
