Funny.

That is more:

If input = I think then print "I agree"
or
If input = I suggest then print "I agree"
or
If input = I advise then print "I agree"
or
If input = I agree then print

here is some pic's of the prototype arms and eyelet from J&S Racing. We are going try them this weekend. I am going to have my friend try them on his car since he has broke 2 or 3 lately.

Hello Jim, it looks raised because the heim is 2mm narrow than stock. The stock plastic heim is 6mm thick and to the center line it's 3mm and the spacer that is build on the stock steel ball is another 1.5mm. The new heim is 4mm thick and 2mm to center line. I think I raised it 3.5 over all and that was counting the 1 mm spacer that we run on the steering arm now.. I might be off .03mm for now.
I like that you can use a turnbuckle wrench and the arm is much stiffer..

Thanks Billy

I have a set-up tool that I can read camber gain with a i-phone .I am going to see if we can lower this for more clearance without effecting the camber gain to much.I also have 3mm low profile loc nuts on the way to give us more clearance inside the rim.I think it will work out just fine with some fine tuning.Thank you billy for testing this stuff for me ,I know he is getting ready for the worlds and is taking time out to test these parts for me.Good luck this weekend.JOHN MULLEN J&S Racing

my pleasure friend.

I did forget to mention that you can also use the stock Mugen plastic eyelet and Mugen steel ball on this NEW arm and titanium turnbuckle without using the eyelet and spacers I have in the pictures. The turnbuckle is definitely way stronger and that is what’s breaking. John made the new eyelet hole on the new arm the same size as the stock Mugen plastic eyelet to slide inside for the adjustment which was nice.

Thanks Billy

Ralph, they are 3mm but no hole in the middle which makes them stronger. I think John is working on 4mm. No matter what IMO I rather it break there than any other part. John, chime in on that question.
