Hi,
anyone who's running the flex-link on their 966, what's the part that's 'circled' in the picture? this part is not included in my package 903354.

Keavze ... are you running Salvens setup with the link system ?
something i tried was at the front, salven used 1mm shim at rear of top front arm and 2mm front. so it is angled. do also try 0 shims on rear, and 2mm at the front. this gave a very good amount of steering, and settled the car into, out of corners, and down the straight. it was just alot better all round.

hey paul, how's the going?

you're running the link system with Salven's setup? the latest one?
i've just installed the link system, will only be trying out this weekend.
i'll run with my setup before the 'link' fitted and see how it goes and then maybe make some changes if it ain't good.

what's your front wheel hubs setup? 1 on left with eccentric 'high'?

hubs are changed to follow the setup, and mine are low axle setting. if your goign to try the setup, you need to follow it 100%, then make changes from there. it took alot of time mid Nats to change it, but it was well worth it, specially after some minor changes i did my self. i ended up with 45 deg front bar, and the angled top arms as i said. it was just fantastic.
