And one thing: It is not from AE. I measured every part several times and build it in 3D. Took some time and wasn't fun in the end, but after the TC5 had so many design failures when using LiPo I want to be prepared...
Wow...you must have over 60 hours into that. Did you use a CMM to measure or just layout on a rock with height gage and calipers?

If they are still effective down to 1mm thick you could keep width the same in most cases, except for fwd. rear where most use zero shim.

Not if they were made in a T shape with flange sticking out on block side and the bulkhead side.

Sorry guys made a mistake in the first design... (multitasking is not my strength...)

This one will work, but can be just a help not a final solution.



The best solution for us right now will be to drill a hole in the arm mount where the second unused hole is in the bulkhead and hold the armmount with a screw or pin. Only possible with the long one dot or zero dot mounts I think.

Keeping the prutruding tang down low only prevents pivot in 1 direction. Make it full length up past C/L of the screw, and now it cannot pivot either direction. Also T shape it to lock block and bulkhead and it doesn't have to come in from backside, just front. As you have it now it only prevents pivot in the direction it already cannot move, bottoms pivot out away from wheel.

Default Arm Mounts.

We have a similar, but simpler solution on the way already. Prototypes should be ready soon and production should follow like 5 weeks later.

Simpler sounds good! What about the full length arm mount shims that were "promised" some pages earlier which should cover this problem?

Not sure about simpler, I could have 8 of those done and on my car before I went home today. Quick, cheap and simple to build in 1 machine operation.

I still prefer my setscrew idea as it also deals and resolves pin slop....2 birds with 1 stone.

Will you post some pics when you build them?

Sure....no problem...propably will have a thru hole so there is no left and right block, and may require a longer pin...have to layout and see, just eliminating the pin slop will in fact greatly reduce the amount it even can pivot, especially if the pin extends beyond C/L of the screw that it pivots around, and much easier to control in a reamed hole as opposed to a molded fit with slop.
