2. I have to rebuild the car anyway.
3. With my weight placing which only works without the center battery brace and antenna mount I am now able to locate the battery 1.5mm closer to the center without touching the belt.
4. The battery now is better supported and has just a minimum space to move if the tape should detach.
5. I also hope this solution will be stronger in accidents than the oem part

Here some pics:





Are those the stock ball cups and ball joints or aftermarket? if aftermarket, what brand? thanks

Happy that the build went well. No issues with parts, fit or assembly. All systems are go.

Looking forward to following this thread.

why the camber link mount like that ???

No special reason. I tried all the opportunities for the camber link positions this car gives and couldn't make out differences on the clock. So I stayed with this option as it is easy to setup the link degree with shims (and with that an easy way of fine tuning the behaviour of the car) and you can use the long links.

The build does take some time if you want everything to be perfect. I spent about 3 weeks on mine.

But once it's on track the effort pays off, the car is fantastic. I've never driven anything that has as much high-speed steering as the TC6 while still remaining stable and predictable.

Run the car before selling it, otherwise you will regret it.

You can probably do it quicker if you spend more than 10minutes a day on it.

Your right Dalebur, I will stick with it! Everybody says how great of a car it is on the track. Rear camber links hit rear shock tower, hinge pins did not fit in arms ,steering knuckles or rear uprights. The instructions are the worst. Sorry to be ranting but I'm letting off a little steam guy's. I'm sure it will be fine thou.
