I bought a FC about 4 months ago with a lot of parts. The owner of the FC focused his build on N/A drifting. I didnt know anything about FC's when I bought the car so I didnt know about the dtss. How can I tell if the car already has toe elim bushings installed in it. I wouldnt want to go through the hassle of buying the bushings and installing it if its already installed. Can someone descriptively describe how the car would feel with the toe elim bushings installed or how the bushings would look and feel compared to a stock one?

Pull the rear wheels out and look at the bushings. IF you see rubber, that's stock. If you see and fell hard material you have the Eliminators.

Look at http://www.mazdatrix.com/faq/rrsteer.htm

When you drive the car and try to turn the way side to side sortal ike you are warming your tires at the track, just be careful with cops around, they might you are drug.

If you have the bushings you will feel the rear end sway or turn. Is unique feeling unless you driving 4 wheel steering cars..

The new bushings also might feel and look like hard plastic (not necessarily metal).
