sorry for that clear words, BUT :

stop that "mod" dicussion. until itīs an official change/update/option or whatever this mod is theoritical bul*s**t !!!

team durango & their proīs are testinīa lot, but prototype testing at first means nothing to me. theyīre all testin prototype parts, that doesnīt mean that the car has a problem/issue, right !?

my suggestion :

JUST ENJOY THIS CAR, itīs already awesome.

... itīs all about the driver anyway.

I just used some washers that I had, stacked them up until I got the desired height of 2mm. The Bulkheads stay where they are, it only the arm holders for the rear only that get raised. I will post up some pics after a race this weekend. Lutz has the setup on his page, it will show you everything else you need to know.

In your pic you are raising the bulkheads, they stay where they are, you are only shimming the rear arm holders.

No problem, anytime I can help. Remember guys, do this mod at your own risk and make sure to take your time. I'll be doing more testing this weekend.

Noticed that Travis Amezcua is running for Durango at the Cactus race. Is he going to be running the nitro cars aswell?

This arm holder mod seems to be "the Shit". So, is there any drawbacks with it that will make me regret it later on a certain type of track? or is it just to hack away?

Raising or lowering the roll center using the rear arm mounts is a common adjustment for touring cars. I have adjusted this on my TC6 and it makes a huge difference but it is an adjustment just like any other that sometimes it is good for one track and sometimes not for another.Moving the arm mounts up 2mm is just raising the rear roll center,and that will increase rear traction. its a good adjustment in my opinion.But if you have not moved your inner camber link on the tower to the lowest position i would try that first.
