Whats the point of the black o-rings on the rear carbon pieces? More rear end flex? Less prone for tweak? Any ideas

O-rings let the rear end flex more by using the o-rings allowing them to squish before the link takes over. im trying it this weekend to see how much rear grip itll and

They had a thread about it on the Schumacher Forums. Chris used this at the Euros to get the rear of the car more flexible.

Yes they do fit, you need to fit a schui blade on them. I will check when I get home, I don't remember the length used.

I used the xray 52mm ECS's. I drilled out the schuie blades with a 1.98mm bit to fit over the ends. You have to enlarge the schuie caster blocks openings, so there is more room for movement. you also have to shim the ECS axle. It is a little longer than the stock schuie one. Also have use a clamp type wheel hex.

The ECS's are actually double-cardan joints, and basically it acts like two universals which are working together to create the same angle as one universal under full load, without either joint actually being under full load.

The benefit of these is that you get rid of almost all of the "chatter" that is associated with using a solid front axle.
