No need to flex but I'm affraid that alu links will bend easy...

Good point, I do the same...

Hey dan quick q. Would it be a nice idea to put 2 solid links on the side instead of the plastics or are they supposed to flex? I have 2 small camber links that are aluminum and can mount them, just not sure if they are supposed to have give or not.

Could you post a photo of your car, with complete setup, motor, battery, etc ?

First run, car pushed like a truck on high bite carpet. Made some changes, maybe better next weekend. Links are definitely the weak spot on this car. Have some Associated links on the way.

Pardus rubber tires from F1 Paintlab. High bite carpet... Rears are grippy, fronts are still kind of slick.

Changed from front gold to silver spring.
Lowered front ride height.
Now increased rear droop for more weight transfer to front.
Decreased front droop to keep front wheels on ground during acceleration
Changed roll springs.. From gold to black
Changed main spring from gold to black.

Car ride height is now level front to rear.

Hopefully these changes will help with the turn in-corner push.

Chris. We used those tires at IIC this year and the fronts didn't come in until they were well scuffed. I was actually taking a dremal to them to scuff them in. Once I did that they were much more consistent.

I only have 4 heats on them.. I may sand them down a little then and see if that helps too.

Thanks.

I seem to suddenly have gotten this problem when transitioning from asphalt to carpet and then back to asphalt. Do you think this could be a setup issue? I had just replaced the links with associated ones
Whoops sorry I only replaced the links. Not the balls. Is it required to put in the associated balls? I do have them.
