Use a 1mm shim where the steering arm is screwed into the upright!!

Its not the drag link that hits. Its the arm on the actual knuckle.

Does anybody know who makes this sway blade and brake bracket for the MTX-4? It came with the car.

Rainer,
You're better off getting yourself the Kawahara swaybar and using the standard bracket as the Kawahara one mounts up in the same position as the stock swaybar
The other advantage is that the CG will be a little lower and the car will be a little lighter also

BTW... Is Mono Tuning still making parts for the MTX-4? I went to the Mono Tuning and Skyline Web sites and didn't see anything listed...

Got a question regarding Mugen Rear Universal Joint Set (MU-T0274)..

How much play should there be between the rear upright and the universal shaft after installing it? I noticed I had less play before. Besides, it seems that it sits right at the edge of the joint cup. Shouldn't it be tucked in a bit more? Should I add an O-ring between the universal shaft and the joint cup in the upright? Any help on this matter would be highly appreciated..

By the way, I have my track width set at 200mm

Thank you..

Universal is fixed length, as long as it don't pop up from the joint cup while driving, it will be fine, O-ring has no effect in preventing pop out of Universal from the Diff cup.

Also make sure you have screwed in the pillow balls enough,if not you will be wider than you should be.
Screwing the pillow balls in more will push the shaft in further.

Hope this helps?

Screwing in the pivot balls more than enough will defenitely mess up my track width and camber settings. I don't think that's an option..

Thanks anyways for your input..
