Surprise, surprise, another bent front bulkhead! Do you breathe heavily? I hear that can sometimes make them warp.

I usually lay them on my pit board, hold one end down firmly and then tap the other end. If I hear a click, it means it's tapping against the board, and probably slightly bent. I usually notice it when the bearings seize, or most often when the holes that the bumper plate screws into stretch out, and seem like they're stripped. Every time that happens, it's another $20 bulkhead. I haven't had trouble with the rear, just the front.

If not will Corally replace the broken hexes and whichever part is out of spec?
Anyone?

Where are you getting them for 20$?


Orbital,
Perhaps the drive pins are too long and are not allowing the hex to clamp to its smallest dia?

Stormer when he's got 'em. I bought their last two a couple of months ago and haven't seen any show up since then.

On the setup sheets there is a value called "shims under the couplers". What excatly does this value pertain to?

Also, I've noticed that your steering travel in the front is basically maxed out when inside of the front tires hit the shocks when they are fully turned in. Is there any way around this to get more steering travel?

No. Do not wait for the 80's as they probably will not exist. The arms are way more beefy so the available compounds are changing most likely. The New 35 arms are between the 50 and 75% old arms. I would use them for carpet and asphalt.

Shims...... the amount of shims behind your roll center blocks. In the front it controls the width of the car.

Steering travel...... on rubber tire it is plenty of throw. On foam tires it is usually enough, you can shave the tires a bit to get a little more. You could also move the front shocks in a hole on the tower and arm, but you will have to increase your spring rate and oil.
