Question for anyone that wants to answer. How are you setting up the cam on the front arms for the sway bar? Are you doing it with the shocks not hooked up or with them hooked up? Are you looking at the through of the arms? Let me hear the process you go thru. Thanks

This is how I set my droop.
1. Take of shocks from bottom arm mount.
2. Remove one of the sway bars but leave the holder.
3. Set the cams to the bottom of its range of movement.
4. Set the droop on the Hudy droop guage giving it 1 mm less droop than I intend.
5. Install and set the sway bars to the desire angle.
6. Connect the shocks.
7. Re-measure droop on guage and use the cams to adjust to the originally desired setting. Snug down the screws on the cams.

As I run throughout the day and suffer from chassis tweak, I'll simply use the cams to eqaualize my droop. The 1 mm allowance in step 4 comes in handy during these times.

If the cams aren't giving me the correction I need, I'll redo it from step 1 but not before I check the chassis' flatness.

I hope this helps

I can see how you can do that with the double cams but I can't see how I could set the droop on both sides with only one cam like the stock set up. I use the cam more for setting the swaybar in the neutral position.

In your case, I'd use the droop grub screws as the primary means to get neutral setting, and use the cam for fine tuning. The issue here is that the side with the cam is reliant on the one without, assuming the side with the cam hasn't lost it's setting, I'll adjust the other side using its grub screw.

Thats why a swaybar with the cams on bith sides is SOOO important. Hello MUGEN, what were you thinking? I definatly will be making that addition to my car.

I don't think there is any choice in crankshaft. It has to be an SG type. Slide carbs are the way to go for onroad due to the linear response it gives to user input.

rear exhaust slide carb - yes
the shaft has to be pilot also know as SG shaft. the threaded like those used mostly for gas trucks will not work.
the car is designed to use slide carb. rotary will not work. it may with some modification but the linkages included with the kit as well as the placement of servos only accepts slide carbs.
