No, the new front end uses standard 4-40 screws. not the huge 5/32 screws.

The links are awesome. One-piece convenience with the clevis style end for dialing out slop. Pretty sweet. Nice to see AE stepping into the 21st century of 12th scale design.

I thought this was a picture from Cleveland of one of many prototype cars they had there. I do like the look of the car and the single dampner is slick.

so link cars have no flexplates, and they rely solely on the damper tubes for side to side flex?

Link cars have coil springs to control roll rate, and the tubes control the damping.

There are small coil springs pressing down on the rear part of each side link. Those provide side to side stiffness, and you can adjust the tension on each spring to adjust tweek

it uses the spring to help with the stiffness? wouldnt they just rotate on the ball? Another question, was that circular piece thats on the L4, Hotbodies, and Yokomo car for tension for the main shock?

No the circular plates (one up, one down) are for dampening. The stiffness and flex are produced by the center shock spring and t-plate material, shape and thickness. The shock is actually attached at a separate point.

Yep, just add lube to the discs in different viscosities for different dampening characteristics.
