i ment the installed length, like caliper in between the inside of the ball cups to get the measurement for camber

i just placed an order and im kicking myself for not ponying up for the ti, wanted to freshen up the car, i think the ti stuff is like a 10 dollar difference between ends and the steel rods...

Got ya, I understand now but I don't do my setup that way but maybe some do.. If I had my car handy I would measure mine for you but I don't.. sorry.
IMO, The CF front shock tower, Rear CF tower and Crp wing mount, Ti kit and front lower shock ends and the crp race shock bladders are very nice upgrade..

can these be geared for 13.5 racing? if so, what do you need to buy (spur, etc).

Where all sells these other than caster direct and who are the top team drivers right now signed for 2017?

Buggy does look nice, are there plans to update the turnbuckles to have a hex driver pass thru for the ball studs?

I believe so BUT I only run mod myself

Where all sells these other than caster direct.
TSRproducts.com
CKRC Hobbies is a dealer as well.

No, not at this time and I would NOT myself want to change anything with them as one thing for sure Caster is known for NOT having pooping off ball cups

i do it that way so i know everything is even and if i get lost, i just wind them back to whatever number i started at... i just go by turns until the car feels good or gets worse.. i screw everything up with a camber gauge... i despise those things with a passion

figured i might be able to cheat a base number, the old manual doesnt even give you a number...

i have the cf diggity towers, i was running the old wing mount using the bottom holes in the tower and a brace between them, pretty solid, but i have the screw down mounts coming... i hate to say, but i run 22-4 shocks emulsion style and they are the shizzzle!

Default Center diff?

Has anyone tried a center diff conversion on the v4 buggy? I think I saw a xray diff in a v3.5 on a form once.

It's been a while since I've ran the s10b but getting my v4 ready for the local summer turf series . Wondering how everything is going for all you v4 drivers this year. Been working on some parts right now to change geometry which should help on the turf. Wondering if anyone has a turf or carpet setup for the car I can review. here are some pics of the towers ive made for testing .dont pay attention to the wheels on the car my actual tires are Schumacher turf tires and haven't shown up yet.
