Sounds good, that's what I ended up doing. I tried to measure accurately and I was around .8 or .9 but I didn't know if I was measuring wrong given the flat top of the balls vs the round top on the A21.

Thanks Mike

I've got a Mike Gee Signature series AM30-5 brace on the way. Super excited. Haha. Thanks for helping me out MG.

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks that fixed all the binding issues.

Default Arm protection.

I am new to the Awesomatix car and have seen cars with a small piece of flat metal on the bottom of the arms where the downstop setscrew hits the arm. Is this a aftermarket part or a Awesomatix option part? If anyone knows where I can get them please let me know... Thanks

This is not the part. I am looking for a part that is double sided taped to tha a arm where the droop screw hits the arm, this metal is oval shaped and I have seen them on a few cars. All it does is keep the droop screw in the chassis from gouging the A-arms....but thanks for the try

This week-end at the US Indoor Champ, I was running the new SD2 and the bigger shaft. Very very love the car ! Take to much time to figure it out a good setup but the car was really quick at the end ! I was improving by 2 seconds in each round of qualify. Thanks to Mike Gee and Bill Sydor for the tips, almost made it to the a-main ! Should have ask earlier

Can't wait for the next race !
