Who me!!! Did I say that???

And I still have that setup going on my outdoor car. Gonna have to finally break open one of the packages of 80% rear arms to check them for any toe-in.

Hmmmm...Might just save the rest of my 80% f/r arms for my carpet car setup at Las Vegas. Kinda wonder what Jeff Brown thinks of that notion? His setups are awesome.

Default Mounting of Sway Bars on new 35% arms

Jeff,

Can you show how we are supposed to attach sway bars to the new arms?

Does it require additional hardware?

Many thanks.

Bill

On the new 35% arms, are the rear hubs supposed to be really tight in the arm? It makes the hub not move freely. Thanks

Jeff Brown has posted a a page or back talking about how they will fit tight and to file them a bit. They didn't want to wait any longer because everyone has been waiting on the new arms forever. Future batches will be fixed and will be a direct bolt on without any trimming.

PLEASE NOTE:

The rear hubs are a snug fit on the arms and will require a little work to free them up. We simply did not want to delay them any longer and will continue to improve them in future batches.

Do you think the new 35 arms would take away steering compared to the old 75% arms (in the front)? I switched them last night, and it felt like maybe it had a little less steering. It was incredibly drivable though, and went right where I put it. Brian's setup from the Novak race is really smooth.

Could someone explain what numbers on each arm mean? I have 4x 75 arms that came in the kit, what are the 35?80? ect ect. Could some one list all available and what the difference is?? Thanks

Sway bar installation in the rear? The manual forgets to give instructions.. any pics of the sway bar installed for me to look at?


PS got the car built not to bad, i normally run xray so im a little critical about looks and quality, but this rdx is quite nice the shocks im so glade came built and bleeding them was simple, i got 4 shocks built the same in one try.. The manual is kinda ho hum...

Thanks again for the help

PS: Still looking for a baseline setupsheet for Stock motor,DUAL DIFFS,rubber tires on ozite carpet. 80x40 track

Here is the one question that I can answer for you, I asked the same question about that # and was told that it represents the harndness of the arm. hope that helps. lower the # softer the compound, the higher, the stiffer.

Thanks i also should have elaborated..

So lower number =softer compound. And from what i hear 75% breaks easier so i may look for some lower numbers..

I guess the other question would be what is the difference between front and rear. As i understood it my 75s are all the same.. Now there are front and rears. Is it possible to get just rears and use them up front to lower amount of parts i need? I beleive the rear would just have more mount possitions that i could just ignor for the front of the car?

The 25%, 50%, and the 75% are the "old" style arms. The 35% and 80% are the "new" style arms. The "new" arms don't need the rear shock extension and the have more holes for tuning. The 80% arms arent being made any more from what I understand.

Ok thanks just want to get it straight so when i get spares im not buying stuff i dont need..

-Number= hardness
-New versions add more holes
-New versions are direct replacements and dont change any of the toe settings?
-If your a cheap bastard like me i could just buy rears and use them up front and ingnor the extra shock mounting holes?


Thanks sorry to beat this question to death.

the last one is false, joel. look closely at the picture posted of the arm comparison. the cut is not long enough to allow the castor block to fit in the new rear arms. you will need dedicated front and rear arms. or just use all fronts and ignore the new rear hub offset tuning option.
