I know everyone will want pretty aluminum... but AE should make bearing cap/shocktower mounts with vertical ballstuds out of their tried and true molded CFRP.

THEN offer an aluminum option if it takes off.

It would be cheaper for AE to produce them in aluminum. The cost of making the molds probably wouldn't be justified in a hopup part.

Cheers guys, the pivoting was a concern but doesn't seem to be an issue when bench racing. We'll see how it stands up on the track.

I'll see if I have any more CF scraps to mount using the two screws. I could just CA an extra bit on I guess.

Looking forward to the outdoor season.

speaking of shorter turnubuckles, has anybody been able to use the inner (I believe it is 2b) setting on the knuckle with the 7b ackerman? i can't get less than 1-2 degrees of toe-in with the kit supplied turnbuckles so I went to the outer hole.

Probably like the camber links, gonna have to replace them with shorter ones. Thankfully there are plenty of catalog items. Annoying, though.

** Does anyone know the largest pinion that can be fitted with the stock 87T spur?

Ahh just checking to be sure I didn't build something wrong. the front and rear camber turnbuckles seemed to require the shorter ones so the longer ones were the only ones left.

It is slightly annoying to have the longest camber link settings as the stock setup too.. although the car works really well, perhaps it doesn't need as much gain as other cars I have driven.

Just checked, 24 was the largest I could run without changing the mount or anything odd. so that would be 116/32 in 64p for those of us pulling the stock spur gear right now.

Short camber links in the rear are a must, IMO. Really locks in the rear of the car (on carpet at least).

The largest 48 pinion that will fit is 27 with a 87 spur

Thanks everyone. Makes 6.44 the lowest possible FDR with the stock gear in 48P. Not very Sportsman/stock friendly for the high 3s to the 5s. Hopefully AE will be releasing the purpose cut TC6 spurs soon. Until then, I'm off to order some Xenon gears.

Anyone have any other ideas?
