Hey guys,

The car comes with shims for the front arms. We do offer them seperately also if needed. The car also comes with the whole IRS ride height adjuster set for the rear axle.

These are the little things that are very important that slower one and scottrik speak of. They are sometimes overlooked and do cause problems that are hard to find. This is all things that we find through experience in 1/12th. The nice part is, You can come up here and learn from the people who have the experience.

Thanks scottrik and slower one for your input. It is nice to have you guys here and helping people out.

wonder were they got the pattern from

I've since done an update so they look like these with ID holes and are a little easier to install

The hyper drive carbon fiber front bumper holes do not line up with the bmi 1/12 chassis. Should I drill holes in the bumper or the chassis???? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks again,

Scottrik
I will be running IRS arms from now on. They are much more accurate than the AE arms. They give the same castor both sides, and the plastic pivot balls fit every time - no slack!! Another quality product from the DiffDude at IRS!

These are the best and easiest to use adjusters on the planet! Flat, easy to install, clearance for the screw countersink (see posts above!!) and instantly identifiable. I'll be grabbing another set at our next National, if RCR is there!

Hey guys,

I have been giving it alot of thought today on the shims for the lower arms. I came up with real precise, 1 pc shims that will allow your to run Prism tires right out of the box with the IRS arms and they go thinner in .5mm increments. They are identified by a small spot drill on the side. 1 is the tallest and 6 is the thinnest. They allow you to run new tires and go all the way to the rim with no stacking of shims. I liked the idea of not stacking because of accumulated error that can occur with the tolerance of shims. These shims are identicle within .0002 and are dead flat. Let me know what you think

By the way, I took into account the countersink on the chassis mounting surface that we all discussed and incorperated it into the shims.

Jason,

Those shims are really sweet! Just when I thought I had all the parts needed for my DB12R. Are they ready to sell?

Ohhhh DANG!

Those are AWSOME!! I love how there of the cf too lol

But running out of the box tires would help me SOOOOO SOOO much.... And would be much easier....

More to add to the list lol
