So i don't get it how to get it into place, without something touching it.

I hoped that there was one with a picture of it, so i could se how it was done. Maybe my part is not in spec.



how many roll center spacers do have under the front arms?

Just 0.5mm.

I managed to get it in place, but not without modifications. I was forced to sand down the brass spacer to 3.3mm to get enough clearance between the steering rack and the top of the button head screw.

And my spool was also touching the brace, so i had also to sand away some material of the carbon brace, to get clearance.

So it is in place now, but I am not impressed about the tolerances and quality of the product.

Four top deck braces... Interesting. Better for high traction?

.. Our testing over the last couple weeks was positive using both the wider rear track width and the 4 braces from about med-high traction on up. The car stays free and consistent through the corner on high grip. This week will be the test.

.. Wouldn't say 'gave up'; more like haven't gone back to it yet. We've done allot laps with the rear motor since Vegas and have the most data (comfort level) with rear motor. We will work with mid motor again after the 'Birds..

Interesting, are those custom top decks or did you drill the kit ones for the additional brace holes?

We mounted the two stock decks together and drilled them at the same time so the holes would stay 'square' to each other..

Nice find, I broke one last year and couldn't find any replacement parts listed. What section did you find them under?
