Anyone have shopping experience with Mugen Direct ?
I ordered from them before and didn't receive any emails either. I was waiting for some kind of confirmation but didn't get any. I wasn't in a rush so I just thought i'd wait. From what I remember, it didn't take long. But the lack of communication was frustrating.

new options from Mugen

P/N Description
T0161 Rear Upper Arm Mount MTX4


The positions of hole for the attachment of rear upper arm were moved
2mm toward to chassis center side compare with T0144 kit standard.
The rear of the car will sliding smoothly at the entrance of small corner
compare with T0144.

P/N Description
T0162 Rear Adjustable Anti-Roll Bar Set MTX4
T0163 Rear Adjustable Anti-Roll Bar (2pcs.) MTX4


This adjustable type of anti-roll bar can control the roll of car in the beginning,
so that it will be useful for very high grip tracks.

From testing last season, I found the Kawa sway in the neutral setting to be the same as the stock sway. Rotating it to the the next index was about as stiff as the next stiffest Mugen wire sway bar. But at most tracks I never go more than 1/2 an index, unless you have a track with lots of nice flowing turns and lots of traction. If you need softer for loose parking lot/club racing, then you may want to just remove all your sway bars to get more roll or work around the stock setup with a looser rear diff.

Thunder, not sure if the new Mugen one is indexed, but if someone could measure it out, I'll measure my Kawa and hopefully you can swap them out. Otherwise, I like the quality of the Kawahara sway. Feels like their alum. is harder then Mugen's 7075 too.

I just finished building my Mtx-4 and decided to start the engine. I then notice it looks liked my clutch bell somewhat wobbles. Well after investigating I found that the inner two bearings in the clutch are migrating out of the clutch bell so when the clutch engages the only bearing holding the clutch bell centered is the out most bearing. Just looking for any ideas or if some one has seen this. I might swab the inner race of the clutch bell with just a little lock tight and then install the inner two bearings to try to keep them inside the clutch bell when the clutch ingages. This might attribute to stripped gears if the clutch bell is allowed to wobble.
