This is how I did it, you will need shorter turnbuckles for the camber and steering. I was told this weekend that other guys are using the 22sct 3.0 axles. I just ordered a set to see.

Is the that one-hole arm the new part? I assume that caster block is also new? That would explain how they handle the offset.

Still prototype or it released?

I dont have any AE/YOK fronts around but this is some idea between the TLR and X-ray.

Simply
TLR NARROW FRONT
- inside track width (inside tire to tire) about 200mm
- outside track width (outside tire to outside tire) about 240mm

XRAY FRONT
-inside track width (inside tire to tire) about 210mm
- outside track width (outside tire to outside tire) about 250mm

Rhett,

For the arm mounted on the car - it has the single hole outside vs. the two hole outside arm.

Which one are you running with this revised front end?

single hole

Cut off the outer hole on the arm. Cut off the inner hole of the caster block

Ewww, bad lighting.

I have always ran the front end with the inside arm hole and inside caster hole while using the TLR Narrow fronts.

Ill have to try Rhetts handy work and see how the front end looks using the offset wheels.

Thank Rhett.

You need to run the upper link on the outside hole on chub when doing this mod to retain the same link geometry

Forgive my ignorance, but what is the difference between TLR and AE offsets? I know the fronts that come with the AC are the "slim" ones. I tried looking on amain and tlr/ae sites for a better explanation but I guess I missed it lol.

​​​​​​On traditional 22 wheels, he position of the wheel hex is close to the outer side of the wheel (similar to current 4WD buggies), on virtually everyone else's wheels (Kyosho used such wheels before AE iirc) the hex is closer to the centerline.
