So true. But to give credit, the TC3 directions were awesome. The mugen directions are geared for experinced users i think, much like the serpent directions (cool pictures though. 3D like). I have only been doing this for a year and the TC3 was my first car built from scratch and the instructions were awesome. I had to have the mugen built for me so i could have it in time for a race. But I am going to get another kit and build it myself, but the instructions don't explain certain things. but thats why I have you all. To help a lost brother out

Viva la Mugen........

Yeap! I wish the manual would somewhat educate user, us, of if one makes certain thing like this, this is gonna happen; vice versa, if adjust the part like this, one wouldn't achieve this.

"cause and effect/take some and loose some" would be a great fundamental guideline for all of us.

best,

Thanks!. So, if they say that a rebound stop is 5mm. How do they calculate this? 5mm from the group up. Or 5mm from the ride height?

It is the dimension from the bottom of the chassis to the bottom of the uprights.

So usually. The rear has less droop than the front?

Wrong, it's all depends on track, driving style and the set up on your car.

different drivers have different set up!

Let put the driving style aside. Talk about only track condition, let say at Crystal Park. What is the droop then? Front and Rear.
