That said, while I've broken a variety parts, the diff screw problem has never affected me. Good to be safe I suppose.

i thought id mention that the lowered shock towers are very slick! instead of chopping off the bottom, the material is removed in the middle, so the camber link holes are still in the same place as the reg ones...

plus, looks like the outside area is a little thicker, to prevent breakage when running extremely short links. it loses the inner most set of holes, but i have never seen anyone use those on carpet.

and the knuckle bushings are equally nice... feels as smooth as the bearings, but no slack.

thats one of the things i like the most about this company... listens, and reacts, instead of bringing out a new car. pretty much every concern i have seen mentioned has been addressed...

now how about some shock spring perches that allow lower ride heights?

yea, ive got some Brand X perches on the carpet car, and it works well, but they do slide off rather easy. i just like to keep it all Corally!
the rubber tire car works just fine, which is all i get to run 95% of the year anyway. hopefully, we can get some carpet here soon, without the 3+hour drive.

the diff access is not a biggie to me, really... i only take em out maybe once a month.

Wes, AE cups work great at lowering the spring and don't slip off. You gonna come pit with the rest of the team at the Novak?

Generally I run a little less on foams. Keeps the car flatter, and the car doesnt jack weight around so much. It feels more stable.

Usually depends on the conditions. A more angled link (outside is higher than the inside) tends to have less initial grip, but more in the middle and exit of the turn. The flatter link kinda gives a stiffer feel and makes the car have more initial grip then it starts to go away in the middle and exit.

For rubber my droop is usually set between 1-2mm of uptravel, usually a tad less in the front. It helps the car get a little more on power steering.

My link setup is generally the 2nd hole in on the top row for the front. For the rear I tend to run the link a little bit angled, so I run the 2nd hole in on the bottom row on the tower, and the middle position on the rear hub. I'f I'm looking for a little more rotation in the middle of the corner I try the outer position on the rear hub, or I move to the upper row on the shock tower.

Hope this helps a bit.

Yes, the X-hard arms are stiffer and that makes them also more brittle than the softer arms. I have broken 2 of each so far (long story), so I don't know if one is better for you than the other for lack of breakage. Personally, I'd rather have the X-hard arms and let the shocks do their job.
