What would be the effect on handling with running the new arms?

Will the new arms allow you to put the shocks in rear of the chassis instead of putting the tamiya parts on? I would like a corally, but don't want to put another brand of parts on it to make it competitive. Actually haven't heard of any other vehicle puttung so much suspension parts on. Seems if you have to do that then why not redesign the thing correctly? I'm not a basher of corally. I have two RDX's, so i enjoyed their products. Thx for any comments

If you look closely at the pics it looks like you can do both...front and rear...with the new straight arms. I have had my Phi 09 for a few weeks and I have to say the car works great with the swept arms.

I would also like a answer to this.

i guess the shorter wheel base will make the car better on shorter technical tracks. Any other benefits?

And are the parts to mount the shock on the back of the rear shock tower included?

If you are going to run a spool I would also suggest the alloy bearing holders for the front and clips.

The new arms "should" make the car more responsive on high grip with more steering and more corner speed. Also it "should" make the setups more sensitive in small changes that you make to the car.

Yes they will.

And too those who thinks the car ain't competetive with the "old" arms - you are seriously mistaken. I'm more competative then aver racing my corally.

So, if the new arms makes the car as much faster as some people claim - i'm gonna be fast

No, the parts to do so is not included - but i think all you lack is some sort of extension for the mounting of the upper end og the shock.

How did you mount the front swaybar? I had to remove the carbon fiber plate and mount the bar right on the bulkeads. Pictures would be great!
