Hey guys,

Just wondering if any of you's can shed any light on the ECS drive shafts. Would just like to know what the performance difference is compared to the standard cv's

if you use scales you need fixed link, to replace all four shocks, that is the exact same length as your shocks
Fixed link to replace shocks, I don't get it?? Also, where do you put the balance pins for front to back. I see the holes for left to right but not for front to back? Or do you just find chassis center point and place balancing pin there?

fixed linked would be like a set of turnbuckles replacing the shocks that are all the same length

Sorry to ask so many questions, but why do you need a fixed link. What kind of inconsistency occurs if you try and do it with you shocks on? Just wondering, thanks.

The likely-hood that your shocks are the perfect length from left to right is minimal. Using the links gives u the exact measurement for each corner. You can do it either way to be honest with you. If you are confident your shocks are exactly the same length, rebound, etc don't use the links. Onroad is all about precision the more precise everything is the better the car will handle...in a nutshell.

And that would effect placing your car on four scales to corner balance it and get the weight even? Or are we talking about two different things?

yes the front to rear balance has no holes but the pins still sit under the chassis fine..I usually end up doing front to back weight by looking at tire wear....

if you corner balance your car with the shock on using scales you will go crazy due to slight differences in each shock length and dampening and the fact that they can move
if you want to do it this is the way:

step one: make 4 turnbuckles the same length as the shocks,

step 2: balance using lead or xray weights

step 3: put the shocks on and tweak the car using the scales and the shock collars to adjust



you may not even want the car balanced front to rear, it may handle better heavier on one end depending on the track layout etc.....
