They do. Your front wheelbase will be slightly shorter, and you wont have as many shock positions. BUT, the most common position is there (use the outside hole) and maybe just move the front arm forward a few mm. Hope that helps.

The TC blocks fit, they are the same as TCX ones.

The TCXX FR and RF blocks are different to the old ones but you can use either, you can switch between the old and new ones as a tuning option.

Korey, could you give me a run down on the HB Subaru bodies (A,B and C type) ?
I'm running 17.5 blinky/carpet. The grip comes up through the day and by the main if I drive to hard I can lift 2 wheels.
Thanks.

Sure thing. The Type B is the first one we released, and it is a very neutral body overall. It reminds me of a standard Mazda 6. It's very balanced, but may not have the overall downforce some others have. Type A has a lot of steering. This one has always seemed very good up front, and produced awesome performance until tires start to overheat and get a little weird. The back end becomes inconsistent. Type C is my favorite, as it has lots of downforce, steering, and great overall balance. The best way I can describe it is the good parts of a Mazdaspeed 6 and LTC-R All together in one body .

Hiro-san did a lot of work on that one too. It's pretty sweet looking. Hood scoops FTW

So the HB Subaru Type C and Ride Subaru WRX are very similar?

Any info for the new V2 steering spindles. Also does anyone know where I can find the no cut out chassis?

I know it's different, but not sure in what ways. I haven't gotten around to giving it a try just yet.

I purchased a Protoform R9-R body. Any comments on how they perform?

I've had a couple and always found them to be very aggressive in terms of steering. No matter what I did I couldn't get the back end to follow the front.
Too bad because I really like the way they look.
My $0.02

I found that too, and also no corner speed... I didn't like it at all.

I now have a Subaru Type C which I'm gonna use next season
