Yeah Scott, having different bars is not a bad thing but when you want to make a quick adjustment in Qualifying or right before your race. You can adjust an Adjustable Swaybar faster than you can change one.

For consistency's sake, having different diameter swaybars is better BUT the adjustable kind definitely has its advantages.

everyone in the toronto area that has tryed the blads has stayed with them and this is not just the mugen car,wire is ok but it just changes to much.and its kinda a pain to change from one to another.

Buy it from Japan it's cheaper than to buy it from the link you gave that gets it from the US distributor

Got a new camera.

Here's a pic of my wiring, I think it looks a lot better and safer than craming and tucking everything under a cover. I hope this picture helps anyone wondering about how to route the wires.

I don't have a problem with switches unless they are put in bad positions like on the upperdeck close to the fuel tank cap and overly extended from the radio tray. Those just pu the switch in unneccesary danger. It's a little bit of a hassel switching the car on and off with the direct connection but it better aviods the problems I mentioned with switches.

I never said a blade was bad. I definitely agree that the blade is easier and definitely easier to adjust in short order. One thing I have found with blade sway bars is most people tend to only have 3 settings. Flat, 45deg, straight up and down. With the wire bars I have 5 (I think its five??) different choices and they are quite consistant. Really I got them because they were a lot cheaper to just get the wire bars.

Regarding making grey market purchases vs getting them from the US dist. It might be cheaper in some cases to get stuff from overseas. I just try whenever possible to support the networks setup to service my area. If a part is missing or bent etc.... it is always going to be easier to deal with someone here that you can just pick up the phone and deal with. Like I said I always try to support the people that are here to support me.

Default Mtx4 newbie

Hi Guys,
I have just finished building my new MTX4 and it was very easy to put together, instructions were easy to read, apart from the old bit of japanese english. I was looking at the mtx4 knowledge data base and it shows a mod you can do to the belt tensioner, as i was putting my mtx4 together i noticed that they have now made that mod from the factory with the countersunk holes in the right place using the original screws.
I dont know if it has been covered before just thought i would bring it up.
I am very impressed with the car and cant wait to get out there and race it.
