so how long do they need to test this part??? its been on chris's car for what a year??? and now ray makes the mod main and he has these parts. so I guess this part works or they wouldn't use it!!!

I asked a simple question to Jeff from corally and I get everybody putting in there two cents.

hi, what benefits does the short arm do interms of the handling of the car. im running the box setup now for asphalt. i got the kit that comes with one-way in front. i was very impressed with my first outing, i ran mod with it 8x1 checkpoint. i kinda need a little bit more of exit steering coz i couldnt throttle up earlier than usual and i need the car to be more responsive, will the short arms help interms of car reaction? thanksÜ

I tried them. I didn't notice a bit of difference. You have to run softer springs anyways because it makes it stiffer. I took them back off my car. I think there are other things that help more.

Besides...... if you think about testing and testing different geometry. There are other things coming so you will not have to worry about trying these. Easier to make little bits than big things to test.

Yes, Short arms will help reaction and transition faster as well. Let me know your current setup and we can provide you with some things to try.

Hi Jeff, thank you for your time and support. I am really pleased with the performance of the RDX. I attached my current setup below. We run in a 112Ft x 90FT Asphalt Race track. The layout is always technical. Daytime track surface temp goes up tp around 60*C and down to around 30*C late afternoon til nightime. My car needs exit steering. My car would tend to push more than I like exiting while powering up. I am currently using Checkpoint w/ DC UL 8x1 Armature. I was thinking of trying Short arms to make my car react faster. maybe you can suggest addtional settings to make my car more dialed. I got 2nd in the car's first race last saturday. I am happy with the result because I was only able to run the car a day before the race. Thanks

Try going to 4 deg of caster with flat hinge pins. The front end will bite a little hard in the middle and exit and finish off the corner much better.
