Default MRX4

If the rear of the car is loose, tighten the car. If the car pushes and doesnt turn, loosen the car up.

Sorry, i meant adjusting the camber link on the rear arms. I find it a pain because the shocks are in the way.

Sweetness man What RB engine is that again the C5? I can't wait to get mine up and running again. Today was an oppertunity, but I dunno why I didn't go; it was so nice out! Maybe it's I had to sit on the ground to work on my car due to no real car or pit table. HEHE. Still no excuse as I've driven the R40 out there B4.

Rody C5 - Probably way too much power for my first time out

LOL, what I was thinking. My Nova top still for me may be quite powerful. It spits out power between that of a Race engine and a sport engine. It's old, but with proper tuning I'm sure it will hold its own. I'd like to run it today, but there is a high chance of thunderstorms so that's a no.

Yes. If that's a Protoform T530 body, use the Mugen wing and trim the edges slightly so it fits better and run it at about 5mm to start. The Protoform wing works, but not as well as the Mugen wing.

Tried it a few weeks ago at a new track with inconsistent traction. It seemed to give me a ton of steering but I never tried the original setup as a control. I used the "B" with 4.5 blocks with stock toe-in and droop.

That's pretty much what I'm going to try. If I have time after qualifiers I'll swap the stock arms back in and see what I like better. I made two complete sets, so it only takes 5 minutes to swap and my camber and toe are already set.

Trying it here- http://www.swayze.ca/O1-8ORRC/index.html

Traction is pretty consistent once the sun hits the entire track.

Lou-

It gives a little more rear bite. There are two settings to make the rear arms longer and allows a little more roll. Supposedly it's better for lower traction tracks.

I think the part number is H0147?? Gary might have one in stock.

The new arm set increases rear traction and side bite.
