There is not a lot of space in between the steering rack and the end of the ffg so a tunbuckle may not clear through the whole steering throw

Is the FCB specific to the front arms or can be used front/back?

^I think it can be installed to both but let's hear Oleg's suggestion based on the team's testings.

Another innovation from AWESOMATIX. The car will surely be more responsive with this.

Both -

But I'd like to hear from Oleg if, when installed in the back, is Adjustable Caster Flex used, or only the Fixed Caster Mode?

Been out the game for some time.

I'd like to convert the inner upper balls from AT21 to ST24 and use P13-4. Should be neater and easier to make shim changes. Is the height the same?

Does anybody know the difference between ST24 included with FFG and ST24-2

ST24 and ST24L balls are 0,7mm lower compared to AT21.

So how do you copy a setup that uses AT21? I only see 1.75mm shims, so it would be off by .05mm?

+/-0.05 mm is not so important as this is within the productional tolerance for combination of ball stud + any shim height.

Oleg, can you please tell us how different are the new parts for the FFG set (AM42-1, AM46-1 and AM54-1) in comparison with the original ones (AM42, AM46 and AM54)?

Apart from these parts, is there any other updates for the FFG1.1 set in comparison with the first FFG?

What is the AM30-5 stiffner? How different is it from AM30-1?

How different are ST24-2 in comparison with ST24?

Thanks a lot for your support,
Best regards,
G-rem

FFG1.1 is a minor revision of parts (AM42-1, AM46-1 and AM54-1), and includes the bearing mod discussed on many prior pages.

AM30-5 is stiffer (6mm thickness) and has the additional holes for more precise flex adjusting for the future. AM30-5 is suitable for current alloy chassis also.

ST24-2 is a quantity=2 packaging instead of the ST24 quantity=4
