I haven't seen anyone bend the stockers but the lunsfords shave about 5 pounds off the car. well, maybe not that much but it is a noticable difference. I would stay away from the hinge pins though, I've heard of people bending them pretty easily.

I say shame on them for not doing that from the get-go. That should've been a standard issue part with the kit.

From what I was told, they were going to be, but they were having issues with the inserts breaking. So to get the car to the customers, they went with a solid brace that wasn't going to break while they developed the adjustable ones further.

I just hope the inserts don't get sloppy/worn quickly.

I hate being a new-b. While resetting up my servos I notice when I adjust the sub-trim the EPAs don't change with it. Gotta change the end points each time the sub trim is changed. Six months of racing and I just found this out. WTF man. I feel like I'm 3 yrs old now. LOL. What a bonehead! All this time searching for consistent steering, and it was all me. But I guess I've learned now, right? Uggh.

I don't expect them to last forever. But I just hope they last at least 8 outings.
