Mostly because I'm biased towards Associated but I'd keep the party going with rc10l4. Wouldn't be bad either way but if it were me I like to make crap complicated when I start on it :roll:

Yeah, my money is on the Associated option because he was told it wouldn't work. :mrgreen:

Well, ART made a conversion to put their front end on a Bolink, so it would only be fair to do the opposite! Plus it's cheaper and simple.

Imho the 12L4 is too new, but a standard old AE 2 or 3 hole front end would be my pick.

Also note 3/4 of the parts required to put the real agi suspension on the front that are available on eBay BIN right now. Just sayin

You'd need an extra plate to mount the AE front end. The ART chassis isn't wide enough.

He's a facebooker. Kevin Allen Pallen. Just in case you wanted to see if he could save you some dough outside ebay.
