Happy to see the steering arm limiter from the steering link/ballhead screw. I know this idea from somewhere

Durability? Can people who own the '24 (EDIT: '23) comment on this? From the pics, the 5mm thick bulkheads, albeit keyed to the chassis, look mega flimsy. They look like they bend as soon as I keep my eye on them for too long. Why didn't they go to 6mm thick like the Schumacher Mi8?
Control arms look thin at 2mm strength, so they might bend/twist too.
Upper bulkheads seem beefy at 5mm thickness, and also wheelhubs definitely look like an upgrade of durability.

I am sure that kit will find a good customer base if it stays competitively priced.

They didn't mention lowering the CG at all in the literature. How do they expect to be competitive?

AMX hubs came out around 2012 I think is when the first car was released. Hubs havent changed much since. Dont think Mugen had an electric car back then!

I don't think I've ever seen a bent bulkhead on any A10's. We sure as hell have never sold any!
