Dude, all these little issuse that we face are fixed easier with experience. Nothing more. The more you learn your car, you will be able to pin point a problem without even looking at the car. You will eventually know what is wrong by feeling it on the track. However we always run into a wierd situation as you just faced. This in the long run helps you to learn your car very well though. And this in return will help you out at the track when facing wierd problems. Your just getting experience here is all. We all have to go through what you are now facing. You got it fixed and all ready to rumble my friend. You did a great job! Good work my friend!

Also Gansei can you please post pics of your front end, and if possible can you see if your front right wheel as you press the left rear suspension down that the front right wheel does not lift off the ground!!!

i am stumped why its doing, i even changed the postiion of the shock tower hole form B4 bottom hole, now at the 2nd from bottom hole!

tried a softer spring and still that dread wheel lifts when the sway bars in the front is installed!!

i should take a video of it to showcase it or pictures mmh - me scatches head

its late, i need sleep and will attack tomorrow
if you any guys out there got ideas then pics, info is a pot of gold!!! cheers

Dude, I think all he installed was the Mugen ball ends on the end of the shocks and steering turnbuckles I think. All the places that the regular TM ball cups are located. I don't think that he put on Mugen arms. This would just be a big no no IMO. I might be wrong, but not too sure what is up with his car. I do think he needs to take that Mugen crap off for starters and try the original equipment. This would be a good starting point.

Kodak,

I had a similar problem but with the old chasis. I ultimately found the problem to be the sway bars. They may have gotten misaligned during a crash. I put in a new set and the problem went away.

Are the hinge pins still straight?
