MTX 2 owners.
It would appear that the MTX3 rear uprights will fit on the MTX2 giving it the rear bite and roll center it was always lacking in the rear. MTX2's arent dead yet you just could never jack the upper arm high enough to allow you not to have to run 4 degrees of camber from hell. I have a full kawahara car and hate to give up on it yet as it will make a good outlaw car.

It's easy, one side (inner) goes to the outer hole on the bulkhead and the other side goes to the unique hole that has the upright, the height is adjusted with more or less washers between the ball link and the upright.

For a camber amount, put the stock setup and test on your track and adjust as your personal likings.

motorman have you had any luck trying to lighten the drivetrain on your mtx-3?

is it true the mtx-3 is heavier than other touring cars?

i cant think of anywhere to save weight without spending a fortune on titanium
