Funny thing, I've never had to ream the inner suspension holes out on my K cars but I have had to on my T3'11 and T3'12.

mine moves <0.5mm. Probably around 0.3.

If you're worried, you could shim it.

Japanese setup, except .5 rear carriers and running in saddle config. Totally hard to gauge the traction as the track was slicker than snot(everyone had trouble). Car jumps/lands like a dream. Had lots of steering once I found the right fronts in the 2nd heat. I could take The triple that is normally a double single much more consistently(as long as I felt like I had the traction) and was lined up and clear the table top/single more consistently.

I think I'm going to try full stick pack as the japanese setup next time and maybe play with shorty and use foams for placement.

I made the strap and brace at work last night. I would make them if I knew the CNC would be open, but I never know how much work I will walk into each day.

Yes they are the same size length and use the same springs. The RB6 has new single piece aluminum caps which you can buy if you want them to be exactly the same...

Here is a pic of my thumb screw down. I scribed a line on the under side of my battery strap and cut there with a strong razor knife. about 1~2mm of drilling the hole for the screw to go in it got really easy as it gets hollow from the bottom for the M3 screw. I cut the heads off of 2 15 or 16mm M4 screws, so about 7mm is on each side.
