No roll center adjustment on the front?
No adjustable ackermann setting on the servo saver?

closeup of new front upper arm and bulkhead. notice the new front upper arms now pivot on more traditional hingepins and have caster adjustments, close inspection and you may notice there are 2 mounting positions for the shock standoff

opposite side bulkhead is the older style, notice the seperate shock mount and standoff

closeup of steering ackerman, the ackerman pieces and the servo holder are from the current mugen kit. you have the ability to use the o.e.m mugen ackerman here or you can use the kawahara ackerman in aluminum for the mrx4

closeup of what the fast front belt replacement system is al about.

the front bulkheads have a large circlip that keeps the 12x21 bearings in place and you can actually remove these and the oneway will slide out in either direction to give you quick access to removing the front belt if it strips.

you will need to loosen the front top arm and remove the dogbone and outdrive to access and then remove one of the steering tie rod ends from the servo saver, but this will make changing the belt much easier once you figure out the most efficent way to remove the pieces.
