On option is to contact Master Dremeler PookyT for his price for a set of these suckers. Hey PookyT...Do I get a commission?

Good news is that you shouldn't need any spares for these camber links. It is the lower arm that fails in most crash scenarios.

That'll be me then!!

First of all, thanks for taking the time to post the neccessary instructions.

My problem is that at the bottom of my caster blocks, the material around the hole is tapered (see attached), so when mounting this on top of caster block on the car, it wont sit flat and may bind the steering...am I missing the point?

What benefits does this mod give? Forgive me for being too lazy to go back and read.

Most of the losi guys are really fast. They seem to be liking the new layout on the chassis alot. And i gotta say its pretty trick. Matt Lee is still running the old car. He's running some good laps too. Not bad for an old school offroad racer trying to figure out sedan again. Sitting down and talking to him about how he designed it was pretty bad ass too.

What I did with mine was to take my sanding drum and level the area somewhat. If you look close when the bushing is in place you only have to remove a small amount of material closest to the hinge pin. Seems like to me that I also had to sand down the set-screw boss and set screws just a touch so it wouldn't rub when the wheels turned.

For me it gave me more corner speed and it helps keep the front end flatter.

You can find great pics on www.jrxs.com

Hodge said he built up a front motor car to take with him but I don't know if its what he is running. Most of the factory guys have been running the rear motor car since around Sept.

I've never seen that mod before...I just knew about the upper camber link mod...Anyone have instructions on how to make this mod? I have the other mod, but am just using the standard links right now, my cars just so dialed I don't really want to touch it I have run the car with the upper camber link mod and it was good on my old setup. I still have yet to try it on my new setup. I will experiment with it very soon.

I'm a lil confused. Are you refering to the rear chassis car? If so then that car is not really a mod but a whole conversion kit( not availible yet). The only real mods to my knowledge are the BK brackets and the front camber mod. Maybe I missed something and if so please restate your question. Thanks and I hope this answers your question.

Hey Bill, thanks for the kind words. I guess the reason I stopped posting for a while is because I got cought up with work. I'm back in the thread to stay though, so any help you guys might need, just let me know.

BTW, I ran a new setup I made last night at SoCal... man was it good, I might need to post it up for you guys to try outdoor and give me some feedback. Going to try it again on Tuesday, need to see if it was a bad set of tires, or the setup doing it, but my rear tires were toast by the 4'th run on them, and I literally had no traction in the main..

I build the 1-ways as the instructions say now. Only the first batch had a problem with not being able to fit everything because the 1-way bearings were not pushed all the way in.
