On a recent post on the Xray forum Alex was recommending the use of the graphite plates and the center post as an option for low/medium grip carpet. Are there part no.s for these yet?

The 14 has different part numbers for inner and outer camber link ball studs. The thread on the inner ones is a touch longer, and the ball itself sits maybe .5-1mm higher. I was just wondering why they did the change.

Not sure if the steering rack and linkage balls are different. Didn't check the numbers on those.

I'm guessing they're optimized?

Default T4'14 very taily

Hi,

I've heard a lot of racers with the new t4 14 are having trouble with the car being very loose and taily on the rear end.

Has anyone found any solutions to this or found what is causing it?

well spotted,i didnt even notice,so with a 2mm shim the 14 is actually 3mm compared to the t4 which would stay at 2 mm,no wonder people ar having rear end issues with that much of a change to the links

Why have they decided to mount the links so high compared to the t4?

checking again against my t4 it seems that only the rear inner has changed,,i have a binding issue on the t4 that when the shocks are off,when you lift the arm it would bind on the rear inner link,this doesnt happen on the 14,but its so far on the uptravel with shock on this wouldnt affect anything,so cant see why it was changed

Having measured some old and new ball studs the difference appears to be 0.5mm
But as the studs are the same on the inside and the outside, effectively all the links are 0.5mm higher than they were.
