I'm being serious, I know nothing about the TOP brand of cars. it took me two weeks to figure out I had the rear arms on different.
Our original Photon had eccentric suspension mount inserts to fine tune roll centers. With the EX suspenions you can simply add or take out spacers to change the roll centers.

Better two weeks then two months! I've seen it happen more often then one would think. ;-)

The kit set up sounds like it would work pretty good. You can always check Hanulecs wiki page..


@ professor

New C hubs look good (I hate pulling them to remove or change drive shafts), as does the rest, does the third hole in the front hubs give more steering???

If you use the new third hole, farthest from bearing, it will create a shorter upper camber link which will give you more camber gain and make the rear of the car roll less which should loosen up the rear of the car.

I'll try to post my current setup. It was in only 0.25s off Larry this weekend -- and should be a bit easier to drive when grip is low. You need medium roll center arm mounts..
