Buster :: How long are you having to wait for the c-hub conversions....or do you still have them in stock?

My Evo should be here Tuesday but I have to wait till the middle of September for my c-hub conversion.

Not really sure, I have not heard a delivery date as of yet.

I am completely sold out of the complete conversions, but I do have the front end only kits in stock.

I do have a few EVO2's in stock at the moment also.

Default Weak Front C Hub A arms

My car was running a little funny last night...when I checked it I found this....on both sides!! This is the side which was still intact...the other side had actually broken!!

I wasn't using the hole....I figured it will be used for a new style anti-roll bar.

The arms have probably ran about 20 packs.....no real major crashes just a few tumbles here and there.........has anyone else seen this???

That looks nasty m8, it appears to be a problem with the moulds if both have broke in the same place. I will have to keep a eye on mine when i get them to make sure they dont break. Rick

There is a composites company called Hy-Sol that makes epoxy type adhesives for metal. Their products are used extensively in the aerospace industry to bond metals during the assembly of aircraft. A screw in the hole with some Hy-Sol will solve your crack very nicely.

Yes...when I found that out I thought it may actually be stronger with a screw in the hole because the hole itself is actually compressed oval. Strange really because that particular area is completely clear from any object hitting it! For my new arms, I have reinforced that area now with a small piece of PCB fibreglass board...maybe I'll stick a set screw in there as well!

No. Just forming my own conclusions.

But now that you mention it, how is it that if someone disagrees with you, you conclude that he is making trouble?

Best of luck.
