They are good to have cause they give you one more tuning option. With the new arm set you have three different setting to get more rear traction. You have the original rear arm set and the new set gives you two options to choose from.

Ill be there next week for the Midwest Series race. Look me up if your there and Ill try and give you some help. Starting with stock setup and change it from there depending on track conditions. I hear that the traction is going to be pretty high. If you dont make it I can give you the setup I ran when I get back.

There are some setups here on Mugen's site. No Joyse park but perhaps another similar track?

Look up Eli Ezrow when you get to Cincy. He is one of the Midwest's top wheels. He runs a MRX4 and Cincy is his home track. I believe there is a club race this weekend so his set-up should be pretty good by next week on the fresh sealer.

I'd start with Swauger's setup from the WinterNat's or something like that- a good high traction setup.

The Parma guys like them. I hear they handle pretty well. We run nothing but the Protoform bodies right now. We feel they give the best downforce with good steering as well. If you can pick up both, try them, everyone has there own opinion when it comes to stuff like that. Im sure theres guys that will disagree with me.

Try the Blitz body too. I think it provides more down force than the Protoform. Quite a few people ran it at the worlds in the final.

What do you think about upgrade chassis? I noticed there are people selling a after market chassis for the mrx-4 made by rd logics that looks pretty sweet. I was also told i need to put the blade type rear sway bar on the car instead of the conventional swaybar.
