If you have the stock brake pads they're very "on/off" compared to the teflon ones that are more progressive.

I've never had a problem like that with the shocks.

With dremel + thin disc : cut the lips of ball end connectors ( so you can insert negative screw ).

For making a perfect cut : make sure the ball end connectors are securely tight to something flat and solid like chassis.

If Mugen Seiki really make ball end connector with hexagonal at the end : Thank God !!!

Yes, they come standard with the MRX-4 kit, so I'm guessing they will come with the MTX-4 kit when released eventually. One more thing for us to wish for.

Pulley Questions:

Now if I am correct (please correct me); the two pulleys closest to the exhaust pipe is what everyone is talking about? (16/19 conversion)

Right now these two pulleys on my car are the Kawahara 19T in the rear and the Kawahara 24T in the front.

What is the difference between the 16/19 and the 19/24? How will the car need to be set-up to work proper for each? What set-up works best for certain conditions, etc.?

Please explain.

Do a search on the thread. if you really want to understand why & how it works, it's been explained, but it's not a quick explanation. if you just want the quick and dirty:
Make the 19t the front pulley and get the 16t for the back pulley, get the short belt and then true your fronts 4mm smaller than the rear and that's it.

Default pulley

i changed my 24t gear with a serpent 23t, that gives you a little more front bite, your tires also wear more evenly.
