As far as the ride height goes, you don't have your droop set up right. Back the set screws in the arms out and get the ride height where you want it. Then set droop by lifting the car until the wheels just barely lift off the table, then measure to the bottom of the chassis. That measurement is you droop. This is the easiest most accurate(sp...brainfart) way to set droop. Adjust the screw until you achieve the desired droop (2-3mm front/3-4mm rear). Remember to make sure that the chassis is level and both wheels lift the came amount. Hope I expain this in a way you can understand.

That new tray works real nice. The batterys sit real nice in it. Does any one that goes to road rage have any front arms that the want to sell. Has anyone adapted back ones to work for the front, I have a lot of those if anyone wants to trade.

Nevada, the BK brackets are more for medium to low grip conditions where the firmer springs didn't allow enough roll in the car. They also work well on high grip asphalt, but carpet has proven to have enough bite without them. but once the new arms are available "in two weeks" there may be a good carpet set up by then with the softer springs, etc.

Thanks for the kind words gang! Yes we do have some aluminum trays left in stock and we also have some the aluminum toe blocks in stock as well.

HEHEHE--you guys are doing quite well! LMAO!!

On the brackets I have been told that you can run the rears but the fronts hit the wheels. Todd posted some time back that with the new arms you can run the BK position with foams and have no problems.

Battery tray-- I had the same issues with the 3300's and double shrink. The aluminum tray fixed it and now with the 3600's and 3800's things are even better!

Kraig at KT is fantastic on orders guys. If you LHS is out, give him a try. You won't be dissapointed.

Kraig, I didn't see the new arm part numbers on the web site. Do you have any coming? Thanks
