I'm now using new style Xray cluch. So I can tell the mod instruction.

- bore the Mugen 2 speed adaptor pin area to fit original 3mm pin, remember don't over-bore that area. Buy any 3mm pin to cut and fit to Mugen adaptor
- shim the 2nd gear around 1mm between the 2 speed housing and the gear
- buy some 8mm x 0.1mm shim to shim between 1st and 2nd gear if any free play
- All are MRX5 parts

Hello friends,

What car handling effects do i get :

when i install wheel axle shims ( 1mm + 1mm + 1mm ) on the outside, ie. wider front track width

and

when i install wheel axle shims on the inside, ie. narrower front track width.

My goal : I need more steering off throttle...... undesteering problem off throttle

Thank you friends

More shims outside will give more on-throttle steer.

You can also add caster for more mid to exit steering.

Hi erock,

Thanks for the advice .

My problem is off power understeering... It turns wider than another rx8.

( I think because I use 2mm longer screws to make my car stronger, the downsides are stiffer and heavier car, it weights 2450 grams race ready )

ON power steering is fine.

I am using mugen mrx4 front shock damper. Fit very nicely in rx8. Don't forget to replace / enlarge the piston hole. 1.5 or 1.3 mm. I also replaced the membrane with tamiya low profile membrane. Low profile membrane don't collapse and produce minimum rebound.
