Right now the shock kits are reported to be due out after the first of the year. This is from the Horizon web site.

Todd,

This is great news, thanks. Will we need any additional parts to use these brackets? I noticed on my JRXS that when putting the front shocks on the innner hole on the upper shock mount, they rubbed against the outdrives unless I added several spacers to push the top mount further towards the front of the car. So, for example, will I need to find some more spacers (any anything else) to get everything to fit the new arms in the "Numan" setup?

Thanks,
Ira

these are a direct bolt on it's actually a complete suspension arm and not bracket extensions like the ones i have. But the spacing your talking about on the top will be required still i have been forced to do this as well since the spring would hit the outdrive and rub.

Where did you get that nice design for your brackets?

Do I get
0 & -2

why is there a +1 and +2?

Does this give you options not avalible at all with the stock mounts?

Can Todd or someone clarify the optional mounts.

Todd I'm glad these are finally avalible, nice work
If you want the aluminum mounts you will want to buy the 0 and 2 degree mount. There is a -1 and -2 mount for other options. For a while we were running a -1 front mount to get more steering. However right now we are on hold for making the -1 and -2 mounts until we get all the regular mounts and pivots made.

I use this tray with 3300's also.

If you have a 6-pack of 3300 cells built normally (cells tightly positioned side-by-side), they tend to sit awkwardly in the aluminum tray.

Making a slight gap between each of the 3300 cells in a pack allows them to settle into the expanded slots of the aluminum tray. This emulates the wider spacing of 3700/3800 cells.

When will the new arms be available?

So does the -1 and -2 mounts add toe-out the inner hinge pins so the setup would be similar to that of the XXX-S on the front?

Also what would be the difference in running #2 pivot pivot mount in the rear with 1/2 deg offset carriers turned backwards for 1.5 deg of toe-in vs running #1 pivot mount in the rear with 1/2 deg offset carriers mounted normally for 1.5 deg of toe-in?
