In europe the inner hole is for rubber and the other hole for foam but they use the 26mm foam tyres not the 28mm

Correct. Although I have yet to test the new arms since I don't have any.

The inner hole is the standard location from the previous arms. No changes needed.

By using the outer hole on the new arm for rubber/asphalt, that will give more steering, but make the front end feel a little more lazy because the shock is leaning more, correct?

In fairness, if you replace the bumper with 1 of the wider optional ones the problems pretty much sorted

I also put the alloy steering knuckles on my car and have yet to have a front end breakage since.The cars very durable and in my opionion right up there with X-ray for strength, getting hold of the new parts is my only issue with Corally .but then it's not like i'm breaking the existing ones just WANT the new ones on it ............... vanity really

The new arms give no really a big difference they are just stronger but they are a bit heavier to! On carpet i use the old ones because the new ones on carpet ain't that good but on the asphalt they are a bit better!
