Oh, I get it.. there's a hex socket in those balls. Thanks PROMODVETTE.

Not sure about the "shoulder" part though.

I used steel washers under the motor mount screws. Not sure if they were necessary. I just made sure everything was nice and tight. Never had a problem.

I believe the "issue" was largely overstated, mainly by a person who had to have an XRay team driver look at his car to find the hole is his motor was stripped. Follow the kit instructions when installing the motor mount. There is a specific tightening sequence. Make sure your motor screws are tight and you should be golden. Hit anything hard enough and stuff will move. I had six months worth of races on my car on the same spur. None of the other T4 drivers at the local track had any issues with the spur.

Roger that.

I built my "old" T4 out of the box and there's some toe issue, even with the turnbuckles the exact length as stated in the manual. I guess this being my first touring car there'll be other issues that'll pop up. I will try to borrow a Hudy setup kit to straighten it all out.

I have a Diggity front bumper reinforcement coming too. Odd to see that XRay's is out of stock wherever I look. Kudos for Damon for replying promptly to my emails and lowering the international shipping rate from $22 to something a little more reasonable.

There should be some toe out in the front. Are you saying with the steering rack centered and the turnbuckles equal length you have less toe in one side than the other?

Hi there,

I'd very much recommend starting at page 24 of the setup book.

Ok.. yes I have a little more toe out on one side than the other.. camber if off by a little bit as well. I'm going to double check I used the right lower control arm pin mounts, then borrow a setup station and dial it all in.
