may i ask why you have to use RRR rear arms for the RRR hub conversion?
Finally my supplier has access to these so i ordered the Front and Rear RRR hubs and rear arms
You mean camber links? I use the V0neRR camber links as they are stiffer. The RRR ones with 6x3x2.5 bearings in are the best

Cheers

no no i meant the actually VoneRRR rear arms do i need them to convert the rears to RRR rear hubs? as the FW-05RR come with RRR rear arms as well.

and on the camber link topic i got a pair of the RR camber link as you said a few pages back it has no slope! i will be installing these next time i work on the car.

but with the RRR you said
The RRR ones with 6x3x2.5 bearings in are the best
where are the bearings installed? as the RR and FW-05R doesnt come with bearings so i assume this is a new generation technology thing?

I think its to run the new roll bar same as the RRR. To use the RRR arms you need to put a spacer in.

I use MTX-3 rear hubs on my FW-05 and i put the RRR ones on the RR (Confused!) I also have the RRR completed kit so will compare them all together.

I have to rememeber which bit comes off what car as I'll end up with an FRW-RRM Evo and a V-F-1-RRM

The Steel Diff Rings do not need to be meshed as tight as the kit rings, also I found it sits across more than the kit ones so you will have to re-shim them.

No quick job:
You first need to shim the input shaft then the diff unit.
You need to get it so it runs as free as possible and with as little play as possible.
