nobody else made em when i got mine, including s9 at that point. lol.

My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.

One of the other things they do is correct your camber curve. Struts have a problem of having little to no camber gain under compression (Why Strut suspensions work best with lots of static negative). When the FLCA goes over-under then they actually gain positive camber undercompression. Obviously that shit sucks. So yeah they are a good idea if you are low.

Other than the 1mm of height difference between T3 and XM RCA's, we use steel locating sleeves in our RCA's. The T3 units have thin aluminium locating sleeves, which have been known to sheer off. It happened to my T3's as well as Aphxero's. Also we nickel plate ours which is a much stronger anti-corrosion coating then anodizing.

hope that helps


oh and thanks Kyle and Gordon.

Threw the Xm ones I got from bwcress today
The difference was like day and night for me, and my car isnt even on the floor.
Car no longer skips up front while hard cornering, just feels alot more predictable.

Would do, but after my mini run-in with T3 I would stay clear just in case. XM or S9 all the way

gonna align it on tuesday, cant wait to see how much that makes a difference as well

Hey guys. I just wanted to remind you, RCA effectiveness is about as basic of a question as you can get. There is plenty of info on the web which a simple google search would bring back...let alone searching HERE, or any other forum for that matter. I'm glad you guys like to flex your suspension knowledge, but it's all similar concepts from one car to the next.

Then you have the other dude who asks a w58-digidash compatibility question and you send him away, which may or may not have the answer either. I'm glad you guys like to flex your suspension knowledge, but it's all similar concepts from one car to the next.

Basically, what I'm saying is we ought to be a little more supportive with chassis specific knowledge. Except for idiots who think 7M-BHG is a good idea.

I thought 7MBHG was a good idea.........
That way, the drift course stays slippery, and your cars will slide easier.
I have seen many pictures posted that the cars were sliding sideways on wet surfaces.
They were wet due to 7MBHG, right ?
Don't you put the 7M powered cars out on the track first, just to prep the surface ?

Sheared off my ass... not possible unless you cut them off, shear off the bolt as well, or maybe had loose bolts. And if the second is the case then you wrecked your piece of shit and something is going to give. Broken wheel, bent lca, "sheared" ncrca...

I absolutely hate T3 but to say the aluminum alignment dowl sheared off is bullshit

It's not a dowel, it's machined surface on the top of RCA. And yes the little lip for alignment broke off. If Aphexro still has his, he can take a pic. I've since have sold mine, and now run XM RCA's. The thin aluminium ring is not strong enough for repeated removal and installation. It's same reason S9 also uses steel dowels like XM does.

You cant remove the XM units. The generous amount of zinc coating gave me a maigrane pressing the parts together.

Mitch... you are splitting hairs. I would be willing to blame installation error.
