Default 1/12 scale IRS Front Arms

When running any of the new larger diameter 1/12 scale wheels the IRS arms seem way to low of profile to enable me to run proper ride height?

With both spacers large and small and a tire trued down to 1.66 which on a large diameter tire doesn't leave much rubber my ride height in the front end was measuring 5 mil! If I add any more spacers with me running my servo on an angle my tie rods will be hitting the arm when turning.

Anyone else having this problem?

Jeremy

i just ran my car with the IRS arms this past weekend and had no problems.i ran the .1 and .055 shim stacked that are included with them and ran 1.7 front tires(new Jaco prism) and the ride height was fine and i had no turnbuckle interferance.post a pic so we can see anything that is wrong

Jason,

I run a gen-x but but I am running the assocaited style FE on it. Do you think I am running into problems by running the CRC delron steering blocks?

Everything else is perfect? I can't figure it out. I have no problems running the older style lower profile IRS arms...

If your using the bigger new rims from Parma you might have that problem with ride height but not that much, I had that with the reg arms but not with the lower new arms.
