I've got Hardrace arms on mine (3 each side) and non of them adjust camber. Camber bolts only to adjust on mine.Oh yeah it's worth noting that the arms are already available but they are mega dollah, you're talking £200 for the toe arms and £240 for the camber arms!
Ahh that's interesting, I was under the impressing they did!!I've got Hardrace arms on mine (3 each side) and non of them adjust camber. Camber bolts only to adjust on mine.
That's right yeah that's the prices that I'm quoting. f**k thaaaaatWas gonna say hardrace make the arms. Always ridiculous prices for a bit of machined metal with some cheap rose joints
The MR2 looks fantastic there DanFew little changes and a nice new little project coming up
Used the new bearing press kit again to fit the caster bushes which was very helpful. I can definitely see me making the most out of this kit.

Yesterday I changed the driver side handbrake cable as it had fully siezed, changing it is a b*****d too and much easier than the clios as you have to drop the fuel tank to gain access. Used the milwaukee ratchet to my advantage though and just go in there and squeezed the trigger. Happy days
I applied a load of Acf50 using my favourite crack syringe so it'll be protected in the future

The up and coming project has been a convo between me and @Akay for a while, it started with another mate thinking of making them but he never fully got around to it so I figured I'll order some bits and go for it.
On the rear of the mr2 there are 3 suspension arms, one for toe, one for trailing and another one I can't remember what.
The standard toe arms are very limited as they use an eccentric washer that pushes up against a very shitly and deformed notch in the Subframe to adjust camber, this is not favourable and the adjustment level is s**t. If you hit anything large it comes out of track. So the idea is to not use that at all and instead use a traditional toe arm steering arm but with a rose joint on one end for the movement and a track rod end on the other, this will be separated by some steel rod that my mate is machining for us.
Because this will be threaded the adjustment will be much better!
The same goes for the camber arm, the standard one as you can see on the pic below (one with the u bracket on the end) is not adjustable at all so again using the same method camber can be adjusted. Rose joint on the other end too for extra race kar fels
To make the u bracket I have ordered some flat bar in the correct thickness and width so I'll be cutting that up and welding the pieces to make the u shape.
The threaded bar inbetween will be left hand threaded on one side and right on the other so to adjust it you need to undo the lock nuts on either end and simply screw the bar one way to lengthen, the other to shorten ace!! Can't wait to get stuck in

These are the new bits slowly starting to arrive. They're m14 ultra race spec ones from mcgill.
