I can say that the ARC handles great on aspalt track. Would probably be amazing on carpet!

Josh Cyrul piloting the R10 is the current ROAR national carpet champion, mod and spec class. If you watch the videos they're pretty convincing. He did mention a few pages back that he preferred the feel of the 2.25 chassis.

Thanks for the info.

My only question now revolves around the hinge pin blocks. Are all of them included in the kit? How does the standard setup of 1 degree toe out of the front arms affect handing (I think this is the standard setup anyway)?

The kit does not include all of the suspension blocks. If you opt for the split style blocks, the blocks can be flipped around for a wider set up.

The one degree front toe out handles good.

Does the Spec R DJ CVDs for the Xray fit on this car?

I was told that xray style ecs will fit, but opted for the ARC ones because of the clip design rather than the set screw style.

I've kind of checked that out myself and the lengths and the pins are different than xrays. I am happy with ARC ones. Well made, cheaper and they don't use that funky little oddball bearing required in SpecR's cvd's. I liked this car so much in stock class that I have converted it to try mod in a week or so.

I ran X-ray T4's with X-ray ecs's last season, also ran my R10's with arc dcj's. I can honestly say the arc dcj's are more durable that the X-ray's. I actually snapped an X-ray shaft with only a handful of runs on it. Only broke one cross pin on my arc dcj's all season. Hudy spring steel isn't what it used to be! I've tried SpecR dcj's, they're ok but get sloppy much quicker than others. JMO

Dont have pics but can honestly say it does fit. I have tried it from my xray and am ordering another for my ARC.

Does the top plate rest against the bulkheads? I would be concerned about breaking the chassis in an impact, the same way as the t4 guys have been.

I like the ARC design cause it gives some protection in a crash, but doesnt actually bolt to the bulkheads like some other brands.

The top plate of the bumper does rest against the bulkheads.

ARC bumper does rest but does not bolt! T3 bumper just bolts on chassis like normal and does not touch bulkheads.

Mine is available - 2012 kit, v1 flex chassis and top deck, extra gear diff, dcjs, full spring set, most other tuning parts (roll centre shims, anti-roll bars, one-hole rear hubs). I'd like 175 GBP posted in the UK, 195 GBP posted elsewhere in the world.
