if you're talking castor blocks, the advantage is durability and the opportunity to get some angles that aren't offered by the factory.

if you're referring to the suspension upgrade, it is mainly intended to provide durability. the upper camber link mounts won't bend, and the whole system provides you with female threaded pivot balls, which makes shimming the camber gain a bit easier since you don't have to take the mounts off the bulkheads. the lower end of things offers tool steel hingepins, which are polished a bit better, and should never bend.

if you haven't had any issues thus far, it's probably not a worthwhile investment. if you have, it will pay for itself in a few months. not to mention the idea that you won't have to keep checking to see if the car is bent up.

i think it's a must have for carpet guys. i've seen too many bent pieces this past year to think otherwise.

OK, I can't remember the last time I ran a NiMh pack in my car, so here's a queston for y'all.

Is there a standard, or more common configuration for batteries in Sedans? (Mi3 in particular) Do most people put the pos or the neg at the back? I gave in and ordered packs for nats and don't want to be the odd ball incase my homies forget to charge a pack for their race and then were running around trying to swap the bars at the ends! (More likely it would be me)
