Just like using the mid flex or solid post on the D08?

XRAY is doing the same thing on their 2017 T4. front to back rigidity but side flex.

It would have been nice to see the Ghost RM inner camber links. it actually seems like they would be easier to manufacture than the complex bulkheads most cars have now. I have always liked VBC cars. Great quality at a good price. And usually innovative. Like the toe block weight system. Very cool.
The idea with the turnbuckle is to set it up so it is not at all under tension or compression (i.e. not tweaking the lower chassis), but the right length. Easy enough to do by making sure it is free to move on the balls. If the link is hard to move and bound up, its to long/short.
The idea is to help stiffen the car length ways for better traction, but not affect the torsional flex. This is exactly whats been on my T4, since seeing the Xray team do it at the worlds...

TryHard, do you notice any handling difference with it on compared to removed?
I sometimes wonder if all these adjustments actually make a tangible difference.

i dont think the turnbuckle is plastic its just the cups and the turnbuckles on the suspension takes more punishment clipping wall and when u roll the car.
the centre turn buckle will also have bulkheads and 2 chassis plate that should have to be broken before u get to that turnbuckle as its on servo mount and motor mount ,

i would like to get one but holding off to summer season but sooooo tempted, hopefully uk driver will get one and will have a gander

There was a noticeable difference on my T4, car just seems to get moving forward better... like it had more forward bite. Bit more responsive, didn't feel like the wanted to banana up.

The car looks very good, I personally like all the new features and changes.
Might try one of these.

Can someone confirm for me if the D09 LCG shock towers and shocks are the same as what's on the D08 Dynamics Edition?
