Poop the easiest way to get those ball studs out is to use a heat gun and heat up the area around the studd and carefully use some nice pliers and pull them out. As long as they are heated up you shouldn't have any problems.

Are you running the stock steering rack on your R3 are did you get the Speedway Pal version that gives you more steering?

Easier to put a wrench on the studs when they are upside down..
BUT .. to everyone considering this ... the surface between the bottom and the studs will be a lot less when they are upside down and you might rip your bottom if you hit something.. !!

upside down ball stud in the suspension arm also lowers the roll center a bit more.

that's it

if u wanna try it, leave the ballstuds on, and just switch the right a-arm to the left side. the left and right a-arms are the same.

What you cant see from the picture is that they have some small conical washers under the ball stud to keep the roll centre the same.
So if you run this way here's another easy to change tuning option. Providing you have the conical washers to prevent the arm fouling on the ball stud ofcourse

Hopefully there should be some more news on Alex Racing products very soon........ Dave have you got any further info

may have to do some digging myself at the weekend too

wyd,

you will notice the difference with the carbide balls - they are worth the money spent they require much less maintenance than the normal ones
