im still currently running the aluminum a arms. I ran them at the birds. They r slightly narrower and the car iniates the corner faster. Car feels more precise.

How are they on weight? Have you had a chance to use the "new" a-arms yet and compare them?

back again and need some more help to finish the build please.

I am hoping that ive been stupid and there is a really simple explaination to this.

Bolted the rear shocks on to the car as per the instructions but when the suspension is compressed the camber link seems to hit the shock collar.

Do you have to space the top of the shock away from the tower with more than the little washer as described in the instructions ???

Please help

I myself use two .030 washers on the rear tower connections, and I'm using the factory screw. You want to space it far enough so that it won't rub.

Could the same effect be obtained by running only 1 spacer on the roll centre mounts and use the 75% arms?

Also, as an amateur, whats going to break if I run these arms and hit things?
- try not to, but its tough

its on the specialized site, and you can get more info if you go back a couple of pages on this thread.

It moves the motor 6mm toward the centre of the chassis.

weight towards the middle of the car makes the cars transition faster.
