Nope, Mugens fault. It will hit with the steering links in the most forward position.

Thanks AMG racer

I thought it was mugens fault.
Do i just shave some plastic off the tie rod ends?.

Also , my front upper arms have some play , back to front where castor clips
are , is this normal, if not, how do you fix it, one side has more play than the other.

You can shave the tie rods down a little, or they get worn down by the diff naturally, your call.

My upper arms had play right from the box. I have a pack of shims laying around that I used to remove the play.

When you use the P-dub fibreglass disk break you only use the standard metal backing plates by themselves without any brake liner.

Mike Swager and another Mugen driver used this combo at the 200mm worlds in Brisbane with great results,
Good consistent breaking without break fade and the disk itself is very light, less than a 1/4 of the weight of a metal one!
Should do a great job of lowering rotaiting mass
If you're worried that it will wear out for that price you can always buy 2!

Maybe you can try to use B or C steering ackerman ( shorter and shortest respectively ).

However, the steering feel will be different. A steering ackerman ( longest throw ) will give more aggressive steering while C steering ( shortest throw ) is less aggressive.

Do you have the magazine? If so, could you scan it or take a picture of it?

I have Kawahara Front One Way / Spool All in One system.

What is the benefit for having one-way spool ? Does it increase steering ?

Currently I feel my car is understeering off throttle ( I'm still using original mtx4 one way ).

Thanks for your suggestion.

Were you running a one-way before? What diff oil do you have in the rear?
