I just checked my front upper arms to see what all this slop is about. I just replaced my arms last week and there is some slop on the left arm. Pulling out the caster clips I noticed that the slop comes from a manufacturing problem. The injection mold process is not that great. The slop is more noticeable towards the front than the back of the arm. So perhaps the hole at the front is bigger than the rear or what is it suppose to be.

Any comments?

Yes, I believe using delrin arms is the best way,expensive but worth it as long as quality is good!

Wow, lots of good suggestions on the upper arm slop, I have looked at those delrin arms with the bearing before. I just looked at my car and the arms that came with it (3 months ago) have so mush slop that when I turn the wheels I can see them move quite a bit. This must affect handling for the caster is always changing... hmm maybe time for delrin after all.

I agree. Sadly, the quality of the mtx-3 is not as good as the previous mtx-2


But you cant have everything.

for some reasons I like the MTX2 better, I can push the car more to the limit but it takes some serious set up and fine tuning. On the other hand the MTX3 is much easier to drive and works great with stock set up out of the box!
