sounds like slop in the bushing inserts in the rear hubs, i glue mine in

i also dont put them in all the way, just enough to make a tight fit, then a dash of glue to hold it inplace

That movement is from the hubs wiggling on the pins.

If you want to get rid of it, try this.

Looking to get a ballpark FDR for a boosted 10.5 setup (LRP SS V2, Novak Ballistic), medium size parking lot track...

Might do a little "ginger" MOD...

THANK YOU!

Any thoughts on the vertical ballstuds? Never had a problem with the previous ballstud setup but do you guys think it's worth th upgrade?

They are not absolutely necessary but do offer finer adjustments is camberlink positions

Hey Rick, I see your running shim's on the shock tower to get the top of the shock out. How does this help the car?

And what is in front of the hex's on your car?

Thx,

This is Keven Hebert's car but the spacing of the shocks just allows for more movement at the shock bushing. If the angle is too great there is not a lot of movement or play.

Not sure what you mean about the hex. This car has the wheel nuts on the car plus a wheel spacer in the front. This just spaces the wheels out 1mm which can make the car easier to drive and is a good fine tuning option.

Has anyone tried the Exotek conversion kit for this car? I am a little tempted to get it but was wondering if anyone had any positive experiences with it yet or if it is a waist of money.
