TIA
Yes- it does make the car feel more 'in tune' with your driving.

Alum posts- Express
Inboard rod ends- Hpi
Knuckle rod end- Serpent
Threaded rod into knuckle- Tamiya
Performance- priceless

A wide washer must be placed under the post or you risk busting the chassis.
The PRP top plate I think would be much much easier to use though!

Quick question,

Not a newbie and need a few quick starting points for a stocker(Green Machine 3 and P2K) with the Pro 3. The Pro 2 I could gear that bad boy to the roof. This new spur and drive ratio is quiet different. Any starting points would be useful...medium track.

Ian- no problem

HPI 1- I used a P2k with 6.1(81spur/30pin. 48p) ratio with really good results- the car was flyin'. Not sure about the GM

Hey looks good! Only concern is that the caster doesn't become 're-active' caster.... meaning the caster doesn't change when the supension moves. Just look at your car from the side and see how the top of the carrier lines up with the shock tower and keeps the same alignment when you compress the suspension.
