Parma Ultimate Bumper - XRAY T2, T3, Etc. - #8053

I also use ..

XRAY Impact-Absorbing Front Bumper - XRA301203

Very happy with both.

Would the XRAY #XRA301223 bumper be the same as the Parma #8053 bumper?

The Xray hard bumper is awesome. Really saves bodies from cracking.

And a fifth body post really helps the body from cracking at the tops of the front wheel wells.

A rear body post attaches perfectly using the two holes in the center of the front shock tower. All the hood of the body has to do is rest upon the platform used at the top of the fifth post...no pin to take off. My fifth post assembly weighs 3-4 grams.

Hey guys just thought I would join the fun. I didn't know this is where all the cool people hang out, like Chris, Andrew, Bonadezy, and The Rock man. Just finished my 11 today going to practice all day tomorrow. I guess I have to retire the old t3.

Drew, Whats the big difference in using the front/rear link setup that Alexander Hagberg has on his car? And it's in a production version on his car(atleast it looks like a finished product) rather then using the reg setup off of the tower?

Thanks,
-DC-

DC,

The new setup (if released which I highly think it will be) allows you to make finer adjustments to height and also allows you to run a lot longer link (hillbilly link we have all ran this past year). Plus with these you wont have to have 3 different sets of links (L, H, R's and hillbilly's).

Is there a pic of the front/rear link set-up anywhere so I can check it out?

Are these in fact x-ray parts? I saw something from one of the aftermarket companies that looked very much like that.

anyone have part numbers for the shims for the wide front end, i saw a couple diff combo's after reading the thread . . .seems to be anywhere from 1.25 on each side to 2.5??? is this correct? which shims are you actually using and how wide are you making the front end by shimming at the lower suspension holder???
thanks
Chris

Chris - no part numbers handy while heading back from thr track. the stock shim is a 1.5mm so you add the 0.75mm shim. I'd also recommend picking up some of the 0.4mm shims. Along with the shims you need to use 16mm cap head screws to make sure there us enough thread in the bulkhead/arm mounts.
