Good !

Also, when/if TOP will make rear hubs with outboard toe in in them. (0.5 or 1 degree)

Sorry if the info is already available, I read the last pages of the thread but maybe I missed some of it.
Anyone ?

For the mean time you can get arrowmax ECS's for a 417 ($50.00). All you need to do is make the opening a little bigger on the C-hubs.

Just make sure use thread lock on the screws or they will come apart

Thanks, that's good to know. I suspect the RSD item would also work, amonst others.

My concern is really the C-hubs, I don't want to weaken them by widening the hole.

I'll wait for the TOP items, no hurry.

I used the 3R c-hub, just for trying. And it needs a bit of sanding, but then it works.

Trust me you dont need to make the hole that much bigger. They are plenty strong. I was worried about that at first too.. So far I havent had a single issue with two cars. You really dont have to remove that much material.

Hi Heretic
TOP is working on double CVD's, new C hubs with large openings and new plastic steering blocks. The plastic parts will be ready within a couple of months, but the CVD's might take a little longer.

Thank you both. Why the need of new steering blocks ?

And about the rear hubs with outboard toe-in ?

New steering blocks will be with different geometri. I dont think there will be any new rear hubs in near future

The swiss guys killed it this year at IIC with the EX. Look for a setup from Philip or Sandro in the next few days....
