what are the part numbers for the ATS knuckles and rear arms? I'm wanting spares, in case of breakages. Are they just the front arms and knuckles? I'm assuming that I won't need c-hubs, since they are aluminum in the ATS upgrade kit.

thanks,
tim

WOW! First day out with the new ATS kit and it was awesome. Ran 13.5 at Tamiya raceway and I was really impressed. I did not run the kit set up as I transferred some data from my standard suspension car and it was nearly dialed. Did not deviate from set up all day. Just charged packs and ran. It was definitely on pace. Today was merely a practice day for next week event but this is definitely my baseline from now on. I will post set up soon once I wind down from the long great day.

Going over the car today i noticed something was not quite right. looking at bump steer. my car was turning in harder mid corner and it was very frustrating and made the car so hard to drive. got to looking into the problem and discovered my steering plate was installed upside down (ball studs above plate). flopped it over and viola! no more bump steer. will be testing it this weekend on one of the 2 short tracks in the area. should be alot easier to drive and not so twitchy.
built my 2013 that way, I think it actually works better, just flipped by 15 over

the new arms are just the rear arm with a piece cut out, the knuckles look to be standard knuckles.

^^^^True but if you DIY your own arms there's a risk of making the opening too large which will then need shimming. Unless you take your time and systematically file the opening for a precise fit. Until replacements are available DIY might be the only option. I'm hoping down the line, there will be the harder ATS rear arms.

not working in TC, but in SS it was dialed...

when I built mine with the plate upside down it was flip monster. i adjusted the setup to it not realizing it was upside down, it hasn't worked as good since i installed it correctly that why i switched it back, just a matter of driving styles

not sure why in ss it was fine. might have been the ticket. but in tc it was horrible. im willing to say the increased speeds going into the corners may have had something to do with it. the lower speed and power in ss muast have been masking the problem. but now that its is fixed the car is so much better. Im able to drive the car more aggressively and the car is doing what i want it to do. cant wait for the CC to see how I do there now that the car drives better.
