The holes are moved 2mm inward, yes the upper link will be longer.

NEED HELP UNDERSTANDING T0161
THIS NEW REAR UPPER MOUNT
WILL PROVIDE A SLIGHT LOWER CAMBER RISE AND THEREFORE
A LOWER CAMBER CHANGE DURING SUSPENSION COMPRESION
AND LESS CHASIS ROLL, BUT AT THE SAME TIME THE RC
IS LOWER, A LOWER RC MEANS MORE ROLL,
NOW THE QUESTION IS, WHICH OF THE TWO CHANGES (CAMBER RISE AND RC) IS MORE AFFECTED? BY KNOWING THIS I
COULD KNOW ON WHICH SITUATION T0161
IS USEFUL

inputs appreciated

The longer arm will mean that the camber of the tire will move less during cornering. Leaving a better contact patch of tire to the track. But the less angle you have on the arm, the less roll you will get.

Well I am not really very good with car setup so I cannot explain T0161 I will leave that to others. But it moves the holes 2mm more inboard over stock.

I tried it on a low grip relatively tight track and noticed no particular difference to the car.

I then tried it at Brendale and noticed a significant increase in rear stability on the long fast corners. Basically the car seems to not let go in the rear as easily or as suddenly when you are going fast. My kinda unscientific explaination.

I also back to backed the new knuckles to the old knuckles. For my money I could not tell a difference. I am probably just not good enough to notice the difference.
