Just installed my Titanium 3.5MM FIN Turnbuckle kit into my 22 2.0 . All my cars I install the reference line on the Left drivers side and when I did so I noticed it's reverse. So when I pull back it goes short . Its completely opposite of each and every car I own. Just a heads up and if you do correct this please put me in for an updated set. Please let me know.[/B]

Yeah, that tower would be pretty hard to make...

I'd definitely be up for one.....
In the mean time I had to settle for a carbon fiber pimp strap on the rear tower.

...........

The 22, Jcon'd out....
Gonna probably get the 22 specific fin turnbuckles as opposed to the b4/b5 ones I got on it now, being that the that they're a lil thicker which will probably look a lil better on this particular car......plus, the fin turnbuckles look so nice, the bigger the better.
Motor plate added the final touch.

I would think it would be a little on the expensive side.

But i have to ask...why would the standoff's need to be aluminum? the front carbon tower with the stock steel standoff's seem to work fine.

From my understanding it's industry standard that the reference line is to mark the left-hand thread of a turnbuckle, unfortunately it appears TLR decided to go against industry standard . We went with industry standard on ours across the board and there is no plan of making any changes.

Thumbs up There must be a warning then

All TLR cars are the same Please have a WARNING THAT YOURS NEED TO BE MOUNTED THE OPPOSITE! Otherwise we mount them as normal and get an surprise and have to pop the ball cups off. Please understand I'm looking out for my TLR Brothers and Sisters. we all mount the line on the Left Drives side. If we are not told..... we don't know, until its too late!

I dont understand the relationship between which side the line is on and if it pops off.

There's no popping off problem; it's just the direction you turn your turnbuckle wrench to make an adjustment. On Traxxas, Associated, Kyosho, Mugen, Hot Bodies, etc you put the line on the driver side and when making an adjustment, you push to shorten and pull to lengthen. When you put the line on the drivers side of TLR vehicles, it's opposite. I understand XXXdad's position and can see were it can be a nuisance. Ryan Maifield actually puts the line on the right side of his TLR's because he is so accustom to the push and pull being a certain way .

No, they haven't officially been announced or released. There was a press release for another JC product and the new tires happen to be on the buggy. Some keen eyes noticed them and began discussion about them . They were also discussed a little bit in Jason's JConcepts Garage video for the B5 - Click Here

What's the status on the B5M steering racks release? I'd rather run JC than the FT

The alloy bell-cranks have been ordered and in production, but I don't have an ETA yet.
