Thanks Dave. BTW, why did you use these positions? Why not say use the 3 in front instead? Is this the kit setup? Thanks!

I used this since this was the closest to the factory arm settings ...as far as kit set up.... There wasn"t one ..Oh well.... start over from square one ( Yellow springs and sway bars work well )

well, my extra car should be... only thing im not sure of are the turnbuckles... they look just like the originals, only without the small groove in them, plus they are Ti. i dunno who made them, as i got the car secondhand.

i told him id let ya run this car, but there is one rule: gotta get me in front of you!!!!! j/k...

i dont have all the tuning stuff either... although the springs are of course the same. may have some bars, too. ill have it with me anyway, so holler if you want.

p.s. remember when i bought that Alfa body for the 'cuda awhile back?

Thumbs up 46mm dogbones

Hey guys.. just found out that you can use the newer Pro4 Dog bones with the EVO4 and with the conversion set for the 415 ( new style bones not the MIP ones )
since that is the case that means you can use the Square Ti bones for this conversion or the EVO4

That's great news. How about the wheel axle? Are they compatible as well? Thanks.

Dave, how was the fitment of the parts? Was there slop (shrinkage?) and did anything require filing? Also, did the droopscrews line up with the chassis okay? One of the uber fast guys here has been testing a pre-production sample for some time.

Parts needed a slight bit of filing on the insides of the wishbones otherwise they were not free to fall under there own weight. C hubs and rear hubs needed no filing, the front ones needed some shimming but the shims are included (you get 1 pack of the small 0.1 shims and one pack of the wheel axle 0.1mm shims). Hinge pins on the outer edges are different as well, they are now just a straight bar with a thread on the end and you thread them in. Rear hubs look kind of fragile but we will see when i try it. Also the front droop screws dont really line up well at all and half over hang the edge of the chassis. Rick
