I've snapped like 8 over 4 months! They are really fragile!

I thought by changing to the graphite arms would make it stronger but snapped on a very light hit.

Anyone else experience this?
That's why they are nicknamed "Brokomo's"

Dont jinx me, the car holds up fine so far

Got to work on building the GT4 last night, the fit on the parts on that car is perfect, there is absolutely no slop, and no bind at the same time, it's awesome

To get the -1 kickup (antidive) I would use the Alum 0 Kick front mount and put 1mm shim under the rear hinge pin mount. The stock Kickup Mount is +1 so if you put 1mm shim under rear would take you to 0 kick......

Just my thoughts.

The only problem I can forsee at least with my RS steering is the ballcups would propably hit the pivot block.

Anyone have this problem...I installed the rear shock tower on the front and I can't get the ride height below 6mm. I'm running the stock shock bodies, do you have to run the long shock bodies???

Try the short shock ends.

Randman - that's what I have on the car now. I didn't change anything from stock except for putting the rear shock tower in the front.

OK which one is it....long or short. Does the hole on the shock tower has anything to do with it?? I have it all the way out on the shock tower.

Go with the RS spring retainers with the short ends, they will give you another 3-4mm of room.
