JDM_DOHC_SiR, I just thought about it.

I don't think it would work. Judging from the pictures you posted. The A arms are really short. The A arms almost start beyond the bottom chassis. Ther's just no bottom chassis for the droop screws to hit. This is so disappointing. I really wanna try out the pin system but only if they work together with droop screws.

Thumbs up It still ,ight work

But it might be a tight fit...on the front arms.. you would have to put the droop screw in the back and on the back arms you would have to put them on the front side ...

there is about 1/4 inch of space to play with there...
Anyways the PAL arms arm a good way to go..


Well worth the money

JDM_DOHC_SiR. Well if you yourself have tried drilling droop screw holes into the short A arms and that they work then I would go out and get them. If it's just a hypothetical guess that the short A arms may be able to accomodate the droop screws then I would't spend all that kind of money.

I haven't tried it ..."YET" But I will soon....
..there is space to put droop screws with the Pal arm conversion

JDM_DOHC_SiR isthat car on the last few pics you posted yours this time?

I could clearly see a small circle mark on the short A arms where one can drill droop screw holes. The thing is I'm not using a PAL bottom chassis. I'm using a Barracuda one. The layout is obviously different. I'm wondering if the droop screws on the short A arms could hit the Barracuda bottom chassis as well.

The other question is what sort of suspension arm blocks are included in the kit? Zero degrees for the front and 2 or 3 degrees toe-in in the rear?

Just curious. Do you have a problem with the ball-stud system?

[B]Thanks Diva. I think I'll take it that the kit costs around US$85 as quoted by Ko Racer.

the quote i stated was wrong and has other conditions that apply to it.
so please contact tokyo hobbies for the correct pricing!

Talking PAL arms with Barracuda normal chassis

The Barracuda kit bottom chassis will be a little bit wider around the sus arms so it would work better than the Speedway PAL Chassis
