1. Lower Arm Postion, is adjusted using parts T0128 (A,B,C) AND T0129 (A,B,C)...using these parts changes what? am i right in assuming this changes roll center? Also if were to mix and match A,B,C parts i could change the Anti Squat???

2. Has anyone tried different Akerman postions? "A" is the kit pos.

Thanks in advance
Paul
jeezs paul you running behind in, im nearly finished

i was talking to the walkers last sunday about the lower arm postion, they have only run them in the STD posititon (b) so far.

a couple of other things i found out are

you need a couple of spacers to take up the slack in the lower rear arms

make sure you run the brake pads over some emery cloth before putting them in the car (they bind a little)

up until now the kit has gone togeather great ,i only have the radio tray and shocks too build now
then its up to moorebank to have a days testing on monday

One of the faster brisbane drivers is swearing by the "B" ackerman linkage.

I can't imagine what would it like when you are running with a VDS and your mod engine!
