BTW, for anyone who doesn't have any Losi 0 deg castor blocks to cut up, I used some old TC3 stock graphite 0 deg castor blocks. Plenty of those lying around, as they were never used on the car.

As for measurements for where to drill the hole for the turnbuckle, I drilled 10 mm in from the 'back' edge of the cut up arm. Meaning, the edge opposite from where the hole for the shock is molded in. The arm itself is cut off just at the 'edge' of the molded rib where the shock mounts. You want to keep this as thick as possible while still having a flat surface to drill into for the turnbuckle.

The pic shown by JRXS Bill shows alot of dremeling and rounding of the rear edge of the arm. Not sure why, as my Parma 28 mm foam tires easily clear both sides of the arm with no trimming required. Only trimming necessary is to make more clearance for the top of the C block when you compress the suspension.

I could see this mod being more difficult for people running on asphalt, as generally more suspension travel is needed and the C block will tend to hit the cut off piece of A arm on top of the C block. But running foam tires on carpet, you only need 5-6 mm of suspension travel total.

The new A arms are coming out soon, now Losi needs to make some new C blocks to incorporate this new camber link mod, without having to hand make the parts

Good luck this weekend at the Gate! Should be some good racing going on there.

The nice thing about these pieces is that it is easily to switch between the stock link and the new longer link.

The JRXS I got should be here tomorrow or friday. Is there anything besides following the instructions I should know when building this kit? Minus the new front camber link mounts and BK Brackets.

I am not sure if this will work with foams? i dbout it because the foam tires tend to be wider than the rubber. I would check with Todd since he originally designed the bracket which i had replicated.

on the large battery try call Ultimate Hobbies www.ultimatehobbies.com i think they have in instock and they will be able to ship it to you ASAP.

Whats up guys, I got my internet connection going again so I'll be on here more often then I have been. I stumbled on an awesome spool setup at SoCal yesterday, I'm going to try to work out some small bugs but I'll post it up here when I work them out.

I thought Losi did a mold upgrade that now has that location(one created by the bracket) as a molded piece of the arm?

Nope... The brackets are home made. Check with 5thscaler and Pookyt.

Ultimate should have the Brackets in next week.

Ultimate does not have the battery trays in anymore, they've been back ordered everywhere.

I have seen Josh and some others using a new carbon fiber battery tray, I have no idea if they plan on releasing this version of the battery tray or not.

I kinda would like to know that the old arnms continue to be produced cause it just seems to me that an aluminun bracket would be much stronger then a molded arm at your shock point. I'm sure the new arms would be awsome if I dont hit things, but I have hit things and my brackets have held up outstanding.

The new arms allow you to run foam tires, I'm pretty sure on the brackets you can only run foams in the back of the car (could be wrong)

So if your running rubber I would suggest getting the brackets.
5thscale's Brackets are of the highest quality

The CF battery tray is only on the new rear motor car, different mounts than the JRXS all together.

The arms with BK brackets are still really durable like the aluminum ones, I'm just not sure when they will be avalible. The brackets posted by 5th scale look pretty nice for the time being.
