Just start reading from there. There is info on what the problem is and how to use offset bushings to fix it. If yours is off you should be able to see it with your eyes, or if you have calipers you can check it. Unless xray is sending revised mounts in the kits yours will be off too.

Mine is off. I'm waiting for for RC America to sent the new mount out.

Quick question: the '15 front shock tower has two holes, if it were compared to the '14 tower, which hole was eliminated? The bottom one?


While I'm at it, does anyone here run at OCRC with their Xray? What do you think of Martin Bayer's set up vs. your own? TV?

You may be waiting a while if you're just getting on the list. Might as well use offset bushings in the mean time so you can drive the car. The geometry will be the same as when the new mounts come out.

Looks like the lowest hole was eliminated.
