I think the car is super stable, it turns great, and handles bumps very well. I plan on machining new towers front and rear that will be a little more durable.

Right now the cars sits on the shelf beat and broken. When I get back to the us in the next few months, the car will get a new shell and new towers.

The layshaft I made works extremely well, that is one of the coolest thing I think I made for this car.

The modern slipper is definitely a huge improvement over the standard mids. You can lay down the power without oversteer. Also your mid is probably the most heavily customised one ever as it has the most own designed pieces ever.

Let me guess, you took everyone's ideas and converted it back to box art and now it's even better? :lol:

I used some vintage Lazer ZX arms (Thanks to Aaron) and took the basic measurements from them to create these. I may change the fronts but overall I am happy with how they will turn out. Hopefully I can get to the machine shop to run them in the next two weeks. I will probably run extra sets of these too :wink:



Any chance you can pump out a few more sets of A-arms? :mrgreen:
