Default AE old school Front End #4115 Lowered w/ Caster

I have some Acossiated (part #4115) front end blocks that are lowered. I run them on my 12L4. They are trimmed enough that I can run CRC ProCuts down to the wheel. With brand new ProCuts I run about 2.5mm of shim.

**They have 3 deg of caster and 1 1/2 deg of camber milled into them.**

I've run this setup all winter and like how it feels. With this now I don't need the caster/camber shims that are now all but extinct. I've done this mod for several other guys and they are very happy with it.

Also note, when I make these blocks they are held to a specific height. Pairs are not "matched". These will be very close package to package. Close enough that all will be interchangable. I have been a machinist for 13 years. Making and using fixtures is my job. Trust me in these parts are quality. These parts are milled on a CNC machining center.

A package will include all the screw hardware that comes with a stock set of arms.

The first pair of arms will be $11 shipped. Each additional pair will be $10.
PayPal is the preferred method of payment.

I also am willing to trade sets. If you have a new in package set(s) in your tool box, I will trade you a set I have machined for a smaller price. Doing this you can expect the same day I recieve your set and payment, your new set will be in the mail.

PM me for availiability and payment.

Big bump for sporty!

You 12th scale guys should be jumping all over this deal. The old school front end is cool, but the molds are so old that the arms are all over the place. Ben set me up with two sets of these and they are night and day different from the regular old school. I gave a set to an up and coming guy at our track and he gained 3 laps. You can ditch the castor shims, you can run tires down to the rim, and you actually get the camber that is advertised. Any one of those things makes this a must have. Try it. Ben is a super straight up guy and you should have all the confidence that he's going to take care of you and be honest. He's also a machinist and has done several parts for me that were all top quality. Get some!

Thursday morning bump. Yet more talkers. I have a few sets left. Make some offers and we'll see if we can work something out. I also am willing to trade sets. If you have a new in package set(s) in your tool box, I will trade you a set I have machined for a smaller price. Doing this you can expect the same day I recieve your set and payment, your new set will be in the mail.
