Having the same issue with hyper-extension and jamming of the steering.
Can be solved by lessening steering EPA - but I'd like to get the most lock possible without any jamming if I can. Thanks
What I did was put the LE link ends on the outside and it stopped the binding.

I thought about using the LE outer ackerman plates as well but wanted to try to get the full feel with the proper geometry. I did the EPA as well but in my head if the car is working around the track it's possible for that inner wheel to get turned (you can do this by hand as well) and then get stuck. I basically just put a longer M3 bolt in from the bottom, put a lock nut on and a conical washer and then put it thru the ackerman plate from the bottom. This kind of made a physical stop for the steering (it hits the arm) So far I have not had anymore binding issued.

From the looks of things amain is no longer the distributor for Sworkz. Looks like the new distro is UsRcImport. They will more than likely be your contact.

Amain will still be carrying the Sworkz product and that is great because we know there awsome.

Are job will be to support other dealers and hobby shops along with estabalishing regional drivers for the diffrent race markets,this will help bring more exposure to the Sworkz brand.

We are working on a new dealer website know.

Need rear upper suspension arm ball studs. I don't have one to measure. Does anyone know of a substitute? Thanks for any help. Been on the look for a while.

Default Rear camber link

The rear camber link end angles upward right out at the hub. How does this affect camber gain vs. a straight camber link?
