I guess I should not post after a few beers.. I will find out today how it handles,It seems to me that the shocks feel real stiff,and it has sway bars front and rear,it's looking like it's going to be a real long day at the track,I think once I get the car set up I might like it,Time will tell..

The car definately does feel more stiff than anything else I've had, I think it is because of how the arms mount so far inward, but I dont think it is going to handle like a brick at all, they would have used the conventional hinge pin and short A-Arm setup if it handled like a brick...

Default Broke CVD pin

Today I had broken my second CVD pin. It was just a slighty kiss with the track barrier. Anyone has the same experience??

well my brick must be cemented to the track pretty well

you should find a decent setup quite soon xxxkat, I like the kit setup as a good starting point almost anywhere.

how on earth are you breaking cvd pins?
never managed it myself and never seen it on any other car

I have noticed a bit more wear than I would have liked in the cvd holes that the pin sits in, kind worries me as to what the alloy ones are like.

TS the HPI Pro 3 one is pretty close to the right size...if you in a pinch...I think that it`s 0.5mm longer..

give it a try..

so the kit items are made of a fairly soft steel, hmm not like I'll be buying alloy ones any time soon, too many dangerous cars around to risk bending a cvd, don't want to start getting Dave's Luck
