Jeff,

The above makes me believe that I am supposed to bring the car back to max width after installing the new hardware.

Has anyone tried leaving the car fairly narrow with the new hardware for quicker reaction? Or, is it just 'over the top' that way? Thanks.
If you don't shim the car with the narrow knuckles your width will be in the 184-185 range.......................Thats way to narrow.

I have 3 of the thick (.8) shims in my car and the width is still only 187.5mm

Another thing to remember is your shock angle and leverage on the arm change also

This is with the stock wheel hex's that come with the kit?

And for moving the ball link out farther, you will get less camber gain but it may provide you with a different roll center that provides steering. I don't think it's right to claim that you get more steering in every condition.

Yes ....the standard wide hexes.

With stock knuckles if I shimmed 1.2mm behind the mounts I reached almost 190mm.

With the short knuckles it would be hard to run the narrow hexes and still be near max width................you just cant get enough shims in there.


Another product for you guys to look at is the .6deg antidive blocks.....or if you flip them .6deg kickup blocks........I think this will be a great thing to have in your box for high bite

Probably worth mentioning that Josh uses the Parma wheels. I think that there would be a different outcome if using BSR or Jaco's. Correct me if I'm wrong Dr. Hohnstien.

Harbke - The CEFX towers were designed to have the front and rear hubs lowered 1 mm. If you compare the towers to stock ones, you will see that the camber positions are about 1 mm lower.

Also guys - When you run the narrowed front knuckles, you will have a hard time running a narrow hex. The tire will hit on the spring perch. I ran these last weekend in Canada and had to run the wide hexes. Once I put on the CEFX ackerman extension, I had to run spacers on the outside of the hexes in order to clear the shock.

Thanks - Brad

Yeah, I noticed on the shock towers. I run the lower row on the rear shock tower so I cant really get that with the CEFX ones which are just a tick lower than the stock top row or REALLY low.

The front... I've been using those extended kingpin/ballstuds SRC has to get different angles I need.

They're just different, but they didnt quite work for the conditions I run in at the moment.
