The stock setup is very good! I'd start with that and change what ever u don't like if anything at all.

Just like Pooh, stock is dialed. Maybe a spring change here or there will be all you need.

Default What springs?

What springs would you suggest I stock? Also, what pinions would you recommend?

Oh yeah, the most important question I have.....What kind of glue do you use to glue the pads to the metal on the brake pad??

Thanks!

...If you go to 6.5mm block in the rear you will get more side bite and if you want the car to rotate more in the corner you can go to the 4.5mm block.
Where is the Mugen Forum??

I'd start with the white springs all around. And as far as the glue, Shoe goo is the best thing 2 use. It only comes apart when u want it 2. Hope this helps

Nils: use the same 1mm shims used to adjust the rear upper arm geometry, H0180 position. The mugen kit comes with both 1mm and .5mm. You'll need to purchase extras to adjust the front roll center.

Simply remove the 4x 3mm screws which hold the mounting bracket for the upper arm and add a 1mm shim under the front upper mounting bracket. Hope this helps

Start with the kit set-up. If you need more steering, adjust the front upper arm roll centers first, as I describe above.

For parts, extra belts are a must have, especially if you run a on parking lots. Other than that the car is built very well. Good luck

No, on the MRX-4 for more steering, first adjust the upper roll center. When you adjust the front wheel base you will at the same time adjust the front castor.

Before shortening the wheel base, you need to be sure of you castor angle so to adjust the upper arm castor clips. Its easy, the lower arm wheel base clip is 3mm. So if you move the lower arm clip by 3mm you have t adjust the arm arm clip by 3mm to maintain the same castor angle.

The 6.5 rear block will increase rear side bite, which means the car will push more. going down to the 4.5 rear block will allow the rear-end to rotate more freely. The 4.5 is great for really high bite tracks. Fort Myers. I switched to the 5.5 in Vegas, made the car easier to drive.

Nils,

I stand corrected by Sir Carl Giordano. Carl is the set-up MASTER so please follow his lead! ( I have and it's made me a better driver.)

Thanks again for all your help Carl! You are THE man!

(I thought I read somewhere shortening the wheel base gave more steering.... whatever...)

Chavo, yes shortening the wheelbase does increase steering, however the order in which to improve steering should be roll center first wheel base 2nd. and keep in mind the upper castor clips have to be adjusted when you move the lower arm clips.

Loks like the weather is going to be nice this weekend Chavo. Enjoy the racing, still waiting from my equipment from Mugen.
