What about CVD length?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Ugh heck no !!!

I have seen a lot of the TKI3's snap front arms. Could be driver, cleaner being used causing arms to become brittle, etc. I just don't want to take the chance.
I will run it with stock arms first but if they snap then I'll need a good fix for that.

Unless you race in really cold temps and drive way over your head, the arms don't break. I wouldn't call them fragile. You can always boil them.

I boiled my associated arms way back in the day.
I would also soak them in plexus for a few days. Never broke an arm after doing that. That may be an option if I break arms on the TKI.

Drove my MP9e for the first time this weekend. I need more turn in entering the turns. I need more off power steering. On power steering is awesome.

Diffs 5-5-3
Sway Bar 2.3F 2.5R
Caster is 11degree with bushings
shock 1.3x8 Fr42.5 Rear27.5
Lt Blue spring Front and rear

I was thinking about going to 9degree caster but I haven't seen a setup sheet yet with someone using 9degree. Also thinking 3-5-3 on the diffs. Has anyone else had a problem with off power steering?

Whats your rear caber link position?

I will try less caster... use the c-hub bushing in the lower position... that help me alot. .. Check your ride height 28-30 should be a good starting point

Also Check your epa ... put the car on the ground and set it up

rear camber link is inside on tower 4th hole down and top inside hole on hub 9-4

I usually check epa on a stand and the servo saver is almost locked
