As Mugen10 said you will need to buy a few extra parts:

Front Brace-PN 3277
Long Dual-Mount Upper arm-PN 3348

Hope this helps,
CD

As long as your car is perfectly balanced and not tweaked in any way it will run great. but if you need the springs to settle the car then don;t run them with a gap.

One of the "Fast Guys" saw my setup and tried it on a unbalanced car and man was it funny. he was all over the track.

Just my 3.14159265 cents lol

That is what happen to me. I balanced the car with not the best light around. Once I got in better lighting I could see the springs were not quite touching. The car felt very good with just the right response.

Are most people using the graphite front brace? And if so must it be used with the long top arms?

It allows for both, you have to flip it over.

+1 - Love the pi reference, BTW... Looks like someone's been calculating rollout on a consistent basis.

You might want to check directly with CRC, but I'm pretty sure that there's no direct equivalent. CRC's magenta compound might be close...


2394 - 1/12th Magenta Front donuts

High grip, long life. Part of the pink/purple family of rubber. 36 - 40 shore "soft purples".
