I recently brought my Mini Z up to college after not using it for at least a year. Anyways it spun a lug nut off and I can't find it, and I would like to put some new bearings in it. Where can I find this stuff? MR1 stuff seems to be hard to find.

In the case of bearings and wheel nuts, you can use the MR02 parts.

Get locking nuts too if you're gonna be shopping, they won't just come off on you. PN bearings will do too and they're like 7-8$.

I bought bearings, lock wheel nuts, and a xspeed motor off ebay the other day...I can't wait the only problem is the wheel nuts are coming from china and could take a while to get here.

I got my locking nuts at the local hardware store , they're not a nice as the ones you can get online but they do the trick.

Also for future refrence atomicmods sells a good bit of stuff.

If you can't get locking wheel nuts you can always put a tiny drop of LOCTITE on them.

On atomics website it says the only difference from mr01 to 02 is the size of the outter flange on the locking nuts .

I got the wheel nuts, bearings, and and XSpeed motor today and WOW what a difference it flys. Definetly worth the money spent. It kind of makes me want to upgrade it some more. Any suggestions on what to do next. I have the stuff already mentioned a rear damper spring and a carbon fiber H plate not sure what the stiffness is though I bought shorty after I got the car...about six years ago.

I recommend the Reflex bearings. Best bang for the buck. I have never really liked the PN or Atomic bearings much. They are better than the bushings, but after running ceramics and the Reflex bearings, there is a huge difference.

MR02 wheelnuts are 4.5mm, MR01 wheelnuts are 5.5mm. You need different nut tool.
