I cut the foam bumper to match the contour of lola body.

You don't have to copy mine,..... I use the wide and foam bumper together.

Rainer,

When I ran the Lola body on the 710, I pretty much left the suspension setup the same as a tc body. Handled better, much more grip in the rear.

Didn't have a chance to dial it in when I got the MTX4 running and not much racers were running outlaw class recently.

For now, practice with the Lola body and go from there

The new front uprights get rid of bump steer, and the rear camber link mount will give you more grip in the rear.

I put the new front uprights on the other week. I'm thinking about going back to the standard ones. The new ones hit against the lower suspension arm and as a result I've had to limit my steerng throw. I couldnt feel any tangable difference on track with them but I havent run the car much in the last 12 months.

Its the steering arm bit that hits now that its much lower. It clears if I use less caster though.

By looking at both types, why wouldnt mounting the steering link on the underside of the stock upright do the same thing for bumpsteer?

Are you shimming the link back upwards some? I have not fitted mine yet so now sure how much clearance we are talking here..........

Fukada ran 1mm shim under the new blocks, mayby thats enuff to make the difference........

Edit: Bah clarified ignore my post.

Dave, the best place would be NitroHouse.com. Look under MTX-4 Option Parts list.
