This seems to make them last a good bit longer, but be careful on the first 2 or 3 laps, they can be wierd. For sweeps, such as 32's or 36's they like side to side. Not sure on Jaco's as our LHS doesnt stock them. These are my personal findings so if others want to say something as well it may be best to get more opinions and findings

Hey guys quick question at my track last week the fastest guy was running an xray and i noticed inbetween heats his mechanic was dremeling out some of the excess plastic from the suspension arms.....does this allow the car to turn in with more speed because the arms flex a bit more?

I've noticed in on my T3 in Mod that the front wheels can rub ever so slightly on the front of the arms where they flex in high speed corners. My guess is he was dremeling to provide clearance?

I know the original ones were 50 mm, and I had lots of success with them. Does anyone know if the V2 Spec-R's are 52 mm? If not I think RSD is considering/going to make 52 mm Xray ecs drives.

I casually measured the Spec-R shafts when I was replacing the stock 52mm shafts and I think they were actually about 51.2mm. Seriously. I measured from drive pin to wheel pin and subtracted the difference and although I don't think I was 100% accurate because I was just curious I did use a nice caliper.

I was told or read somewhere that they are about 51mm long, same with the Aeromax shafts, but everyone says that Spec-r V2's are the way to go

It sounds like they were doing it to get more arm flex, but I don't think that's very common to do on modern touring cars. What kind of surface do you race on? It could help with mechanical grip on low traction surfaces, but I know it would hurt your corner speed on all of the tracks we race on in Florida that have at least moderate traction.

That looks intense, does it generate too much grip?
