my little aluminum a-arm braces worked pretty good today. i practiced for a few hours today and did some "stress testing" of the front end. nothing broke.
on a side note, i also think i found why my car wasn't handling so hot. i pulled a n00b move and basically hadn't done anything with my shocks since about june of last year
. i put the car on my tweak station and it was all out of whack. i drained and re-filed the shocks, no other chassis changes, and the tweak was dead on afterward.
what's even worse is i've experienced the EXACT same thing with my xxx-s after long periods of not running it.
