They are designed exactly the same, but come from a different mold. They are physically different and run true. It took me 3 sets of bearings, which the bearings are all still good, to convince myself it was the carriers. TQ keeps them in stock under the Zero spares section. I replaced them and switched to the option bulkheads/motor mount. What a difference! The car is now completely free with no bind anywhere.

Exactly! They look slightly different, shinier, and come separated in a 4 pack.

Here she is!! been playing in the street for the last few hours, its definitely going to take alot of experimentation but it is neat watching the entire car roll into the turns and transfer weight. i think the trick is going to be getting roll centers to work with each other.

Looks great Marcus! With the IFS, you think you'll have to go more rigid on the top deck again?

possibly but to test i will just brace the current one using the shock mount plate which does stiffen it up a good amount. I have already notice that i had to increase rear camber up to 3* since it rolls much more now, also had to give it more rear droop! Exciting stuff, now to maximize mechanical grip!!

Happy testing! We expect to see some results posted later on.

I am not sure how i am going to handle this because most of the parts are just 3r parts and no way in hell i am going to piece an entire kit together! dont have time for that. best i can do is offer a DIY kit with my upperdeck and machined parts to make it work and make a list for the remainder of the parts. First things first though let me see if it is even worth selling! I now need to do some reading on how to increase mechanical grip and i need to draw up the rear suspension to see where in the hell the roll center is! I have a hunch its about 3' below sea level
