Hello,
What is the difference in length between the normal arms and the graphite, short arms ?
Do you have to change anything if you want to switch from the regular arms to the graphite ones ? Do you need other parts ?
Does the rear arm work because the construction is a little different than that of the original arms ?
Thanks

The short arms are .150" shorter. All you need to do is flip your pivots to use the short arms on the car.

It was just a thought, as I hardly ever broke an arm on the XXX-S

Not sure if you remember my time with the xxxs. I caught the black marker on the diagonal at wlrc and took a rear arm straight off.

That cost me a new chassis, after I whacked the car across the wooden fence in frustration

That wasnt a good time for me

Hello Tod,

What do you mean with flip your pivots ? What partnumber should i change ?

And what is the effect on the car handling if you use the shorter arms ?

Thanks

You flip the roll center pivots and it even tells you in the manual which holes to use for which arms. I can't speak for the way it handles with short arms for I have not really been able to run my car at all really yet. Todd or others will have to answer that one.

reverse the side that your pivots are on... if you're running long arms, high roll center and want to run short arms, high roll center just swap the left and right side pivots and flip the front pivot over accordingly. imagine rotating them 180 degrees about the centerline of the car.

the handling effect of the shorter arms is a little less traction at the end you're running them on. i'm currently running long arms in the rear and short arms in the front. my setup started out that way because i broke a front long arm and didn't have any more. i kept it that way because with the long arms the front end was super aggressive on my local track. the shorter arm made the car feel more balanced.
