Mike,

I deal with Robert from Ashford. He said he talked to you a few weeks ago on the new style arms. He got the front lowers and that's it. Nothing else (a-arm wise) was filled. He should be placing another order tomorrow.

Thanks for the update!!

Corey

Appreciate the fast response! Let me ask you guys this. Since i broke a bulkhead last season, I figured i would go ahead and convert the car to the R. Is the R version that big of a noticble difference especially for it being only my second season racing?

I personally haven't had a belt stripping issue so I'm wondering about the new bulkheads. Although they are the same price so I said heck might as well get them. Other than that I run my stock MRX4 and am pretty happy with it.

Hi bmcallister,

You're quite welcome.

Now, I wont be an objective person if I say there will be a "big of a noticble difference" between the MRX4 and the 4R.. Afterall, they are both still basically the same car. But with the 4R performance changes, (for me) the car just got even better.

Personally, since I started using the MRX4, I've gotten more and more excited about 1:8th scale racing.... and that has now grown even more with my MRX4-R.

Default MRX 4 R ARMS

IS IT TRUE THAT THE MRX 4 R's FRONT UPPER ARMS ARE THE SAME AS THE MRX 3's UPPER ARMS, I HAVE A FREIND WHO SWEARS THAT THEY ARE THE SAME IN DIMENSION & LENGTH, THAT THEY ARE IDENTICAL, IS THIS TRUE OR NOT, I WANT TO SHUT THIS GUY UP, I HAVE AN MRX 4 R, BUT IV'E NEVER OWNED AN MRX 3, SO I DON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

When comparing one from the other, the MRX3 arms are wider (assuming you're looking at the car from it's side).

With the MRX4 (arched) or MRX4-R (not arched) arms, it allows the car to have more available caster settings.

Pollito,
This should clear things up.

Bmcallister & HarKonnenD

I wanted to add a couple of things:

The new bulkheads, FR & R, not only does it give you the ability to adjust the belt tensions, it lowers the Diffs ~2 MM for a lower CG as well.

As far as the 4R upgrade - lower CG, lower arm and shock angles to run lower bodies, and more adjustability, as Ron stated, made a great car even greater. The 4R has not met a track it didn't like!

bmcallister,

Here's the part number for your MRX4-R Front Upper Arms: H0135

Now as Mikey stated, it carries the same part number as the previous Front Upper Arms (of the MRX4), so since you want the same ones that come in the 4R kits, please mention that when you order them.
