Hi, all

Thank you

They are the same. If you got a LeMans chassis, its a longer wheelbase and some parts are unique, so look for the LM designation for those parts.

All MR02 parts are compatable with the 2.4ghz cars. The main chassis is the same, the only difference on the LM chassis are the knuckles, and motormount/suspension.

Are the knuckles different? I didn't notice any difference...

I don't have a LM, but I seem to recall from the ASF chassis manual that the knuckle is the same, but the suspension limiter is installed upside down compared to the RM/MM. I'm sure EMU will correct me if I'm wrong.

yup the suspension limiter is upside down, is it safe to invert it?

I am pretty sure that the suspension limiters are installed the same on the MR02 RM/MM/LM. Only the knuckles are different on the front end. The LM knuckles lower the ride height a little while maintaining the same suspension travel. I used to install the suspension limiter above the spring for a few years, and recently reverted back to the normal method to get some "damping" effect as the limiter travels on the kingpin (no grease or fluid used). Honestly, I dont really notice any difference.
