Thanks,
Mike

At current exchange rates, it's a little over $370.

I'm building the new EVO kit for a friend and I have a couple of questions.

Since the steering has been changed is it still necessary to change the servo saver spring to a harder one?

And, how does the belt tensioner mount on the the side plate? According to the instructions, it will bind and rub against the side plate?

I just ran my car again, I set it up a little differently and not once did i have the rear end slide out. WOW i can come flying into a turn and the baby just hooks right up to the ground!!! I put the softer springs in the front and harder in the rear, changed the rear shock position to one hole higher. Gave it a little more negative camber in the rear, little less toe and camber in the front and took out the front sway bar and put some sorex slicks on it. Whew i love this car !!!!! ride height in the front was 5mm and rear was 6mm and don't know what diff fluid i had in the back. Tires are wearing perfectly also. I'm in love with this car again except i broke the damn servo saver again Oh well. Guess i will be ordering the new parts. I'm still sticking with the sliding rails, i love it. Soo smooth when adjusted correctly.

Mike

Default ATTENTION! New K Factory Steering Arms SUCK!!

I put the new arms on my car about a week ago and have had nothing but problems; no matter what I do the car pushes!!!

I finally put my car on a stand and cycle the steering from hard left to hard right. When I do the left suspension raises up at full lock!?!?!? WTF? So I take the arms off and compare them and lo and behold the geometry on the left is totally different than on the right!?!?!

Does anybody elses' look like this? Surely, they must, unless these are molded in a multiple cavity mold and I got a steering arm from a bad cavity.

Check this pic out:

Notice how the ball ends on the left steering arm (the one on the right in the pic) can't travel as far as on the right arm. This is what is causing the left suspension to lift!!! Also notice how much wider area "B" is than area "A", and how line "C" is tilted much more than line "D".

This SUCKS!!!!!! I can't believe anyone with the new steering arms is getting good performance.

K Factory, you owe some people some new parts!!!!!!!!
