HOLES = extensions are used on the rear which would be the other "magic 4th hole"

FRONT = referring to the front end direction of the car. You can adjust the hinge pin angles independently to achieve "anti" or "pro" squat on the front and rear.

90* ANGLE = Showing the angle of the kingpin ballstud. Not sure why this is there as it cannot be adjusted. It is on the C-hub.

Wow, thanks a lot. For the droop screws, I noticed on the set-up sheets it's saying around 4.5mm?? Are they running 4.5mm of droop, the droop screws are that long, that's how much screw is visisble above the arm, under? Thanks!

I believe this is a better understanding...
If you place your car flat on a setup board or something perfectly flat without wheels on the arms should sit off the setup board 4.5mm....use a ride height gauge...That is a good starting point...
Hope that helps.

Oic, is that how you guy set your droop? I ussually set mine buy measuring ride height, and then adjusting the droop by lifting the front end up until the tires just come off and measure the difference. Same for the rear.

Measuring the height of the arms off the table, do you measure at the very end of the arm? Thanks!

I do it the way you described. To each his own. This way refers to "uptravel".

Parma, TRC, and Speedmind are also good choices.

Random thought: Gee, no less than 15 FK05s for sale on the first 5 pages of Classifieds. I wonder why?

The Jaco rims seem to be stronger now. Also can try BSR. They get their foam from Jaco, so basically the same stuff. Just don't have the 2 stages.

Yea at the very outside edge cause the knuckle screw sits below the arm.
I use to use that way to set droop, but I found that it wasn't as consistant as doing it to each arm.
Plus I so use to doing it that way.
Same result cause I compaired...MAHAHAHAHA sorry....Besides I take off my tires after every run anyhow to clean them out and make sure they aren't damaged..Don't want to say how many times I forgot to check the rim and it snapped on the next run...
Ok enough you get my point..
