With the improvements TLR made to theirs, I think the TLR is easily the best damper on the market right now. Easy to build, inexpensive to maintain, and they work great. Would like to put a set on my B5.

[QUOTE=gticlay;13264919]I find it hard to believe they would take out that much side bite but the AE guys I've spoken with have told me that the hard rear arms do reduce rear traction enough to notice.[/QUOTE


Oman...

Just installed the pistons yesterday, only had time to do that & clean my gear box.

Tonight I get to try for first time.
How do I know how they effect performance ?

I ask my teammates.....

Guys over in the rear motor thread have been talking about raising the front hubs, figured I would share over here as well. Used a technique that Luke Smith used on his Centro to raise the hub 1mm. If you were looking for a basically free way to try out the raised hub here is the way to do it. If you dont like it then move the 1mm spacer to the top and you have the original hub position.

The rear motor arms are run reversed so it gives you more bone sweep. More rear grip.

Can you please explain this to me? I am totally out of the loop on running the rear motor arms on the mid in the first place. More so, are people really running them reversed?

Yes you have to reverse or flip them so you can mount the shocks to them. On the rm the shocks mount to the front of the arms. They look identical to the eye but the geometry is different and doing this locks the rear end down better.

It pushes the rear wheels forward a mm or two, possibly more, this creates more rear grip

READ!!! Or go talk to your "teammates" Your on this site all day I can't explain it any easier. It locks the rear end down when running on high to med grip. More rear traction. %25 more grip (sarcasm)

I hope people in this hobby can figure out what is upside down when installing the rm arms.
