I'm still curious on adjusting front ride height. It looks to have little red aluminum standoffs under the lower arms, are we still using washers?

Yep, looks like we're still using shims to adjust ride height, but with a fixed lower arm there's really no other way, and the CRC shims make it really quick to adjust.

I really like the front end, it looks like Frank thought of everything. The chassis even has holes in the bottom so you can access the upper arm mounts without having to take the lower arms off the chassis. I really like the threaded kingpin idea, no more shimming the kingpin to make sure the wheels to rub. I'm curious to see how heavy it is compared to the strut front end though.

CRC's red color reminds me Ferrari domination in F1. RED IS FAST.

I spoke with CRC this morning and they are still on track to start shipping kits tomorrow. They are sold out of the first batch. However they said if you placed the order within the first couple days of hitting the site it should not be a issue getting yours this week.

The demand is HUGE, they have A LOT of orders for the Gen-X.
