    Xcessive RUCA urethane bushings - MX83

    Sorry I haven't responded yet, No Rich has been way too busy with his normal work and the super secret swap in Lucas' car to make anything new parts yet. But they have been on our minds.

    Suspension parts for mx83?

    Xcessive Manufacturing and BC Racing, anything you'll ever need for a cress.

    Bwcress - The original XM tension rods you already have can be modified to fit but as it's sits it will not. We will be offering to mod peoples existing tension rods. We are currently trying to figure out the cost. For your second question NCRCA's are a bad Idea, they cause a increase in scrub radius with the FLCA. You will hit the front and the back of the fender well. And yes there are some benefits to them with out our knuckles. It allows yo to run wide wheels and tires and not rub the frame rail without increasing scrub radius. Also factory knuckles clear the FLCA to full lock before contact the arm. As well as the ability to increase the camber beyond what your top hats can to. mr2thomas - yes they are strong as shit. The tubing used are 1.75" .120 wall DOM (roll cage tubing), 1" thick heim rod end on the weighted side, and 3/4" heim on the inside.

    Top hats will help with camber adjustment, but if you are looking for zero camber and extended FLCA it is not possible. Also it's fairly easy to unbolt everything on the FLCA. It only takes minutes to disassemble.

    Hizoku - that's exactly what I was saying, there is no one size fits all approach to these FLCA because of the myriad of choices people can modify. That's why we need the info to tell each customer what they need to do or purchase. Swim - The reason for the double ball joint design is for the amount of adjustment. no single heim rod end has enough adjustment to go from 0 to 2" over stock. The bend is to keep the factory geometry of the strut to LCA, but in no way obstructs the adjustment of the outer 1" heim joint. Also the double heim rod end design is easier to service for any reason. Track width is not something you adjust constantly, so there is no need to make the FLCA adjustable while still fully connected.

    Hizoku - The reason for all the questions, is to determine IF or how long a heim adapter will be needed to make sure you can align your car safely. Because these arms allow for so much adjustment we can't make a one size fits all outer tie-rod setup. Some people might need a extra long one like on my car, or some may need the standard heim kit, and depending on those variables you might not need anything at all. There are so many different setups for our cars it's hard to tell people what they need if we don't know what they have. For example: my current setup is X8 with XM FLCA extended 1 3/4" out, X7 rack, X7 inners, Zero Ackerman arms, and Heim outers with a special extra long adapter. But if I had X8 inners my adapter would be shorter. Hope that clarifies why we need so much info before your purchase to make sure you get the right parts. WhoreMouth_jr - You might be able to get away with a standard heim kit or even nothing at all if you don't plan on extending them past 1" to 1 1/4". We are still trying to make all the measurements to give a definitive answer on what will and will not work. If you plan on full extension you might be able to get away with the standard heim if not a slightly elongated one. Just to let you know if you run a longer heim adapter you can't go shorter than a 1" extended.
  7. Checked your soft rubber bushings in those upper control arms? Good chance they're not in good shape and the camber is changing when you shift weight on the rear. We've made these bushings from the same hard urethane (D70) that we use for our sub frame bushings and diff bushings and added a steel sleeve for the pivot action. Add these to our lower arms and pillow balls and you've removed all the old worn out bushings in the rear. Comes in a complete set for both rear upper arms. 8 bushings, 4 steel sleeves and silicone installation grease. Price: $ 87.00 / 1 set Product code: T-MX83-RUCA-B LINK --------------------------> RUCA IN STOCK AND READY TO SHIP!!!!!!!!!!! I have been testing these for months on my ProAm chassis, both street and track driving. I can't believe that every little thing we do to our cars changes the feel of it so much. Maybe it's because our car are getting old the factory parts are staring to fall apart. But each piece I change makes a dramatic difference on how predictable the car is on the track and street. - Mitch

    All the info you need is in the new FLCA thread ---->http://jzxproject.com/bbs/index.php?showtopic=8045 , if you need any additional info please let me know.

    Our innovative new front control arm design uses two easily replaceable/adjustable heims and massive taper adapter along with a proprietary tension rod to give you a big range of adjustment from stock track width to +2" (50mm) per side. By going with two heims and a dual position tensions rod, you can maximize wheel clearance to the tension rod and chassis while keeping the tension rod axis of rotation in a reasonable range helping with alignment and Caster. If you’ve ever tried to do cut and welded stock lower arms, you know how bad it gets when the tension rod get off axis. We’ve also included new heim sway bar end links and incorporated steering stops. On our test car we were able to get just over 8 degrees of Camber at full arm extension with coilovers and camber plates. If you think 2” per side isn’t enough track width, just give us a call. With all fabrication of the components done in house, we can make custom arms in any width you want. Made with a 1" outer heim and 3/4" inner heim coupled together with 1 3/4" .120 wall DOM tubing and Fully TIG welded, we've beat on these arms pretty hard on high speed tracks, dirt drops and road miles with pot holes, just for fun we finished them off a satin nickel plate. Price: $425.00/ 1 Set Product Code: T-MX83-FLCA Link -----------------------------------> FLCA As always full warranty on these parts. Currently we have a limited number in stock, as we are waiting for the next batch to come back from the plating. ​We are also making longer heim adapters to accommodate the many variations of setups for Cressida's. The factors that apply are: What rack are you using? X8 or X7 What inner tie rods are you using? X8 or X7 What outer tie rods are you using? XM + OEM, X8, X7, or XM heim What Knuckles are you using? OEM, XM Original, or XM Zero Ackerman Please when you order we need all of that info in order to keep a safe engagement of threads to your steering components.

    Just back on JZXP after a little down time, I am assuming that you got your email and parts?

    Xcessive Heim Outer Tie-Rod adapters

    They will work up to 1 1/4" extended with factory X8 inners, we are making longer ones for people who want to extend the FLCA's beyond that but do not want to return to stock length.
  12. the XM hood vents were designed to vent behind the radiator but in front of the cam cover. No rain will be going into your spark plug valley.

    ^ as for clearance to the fender yes. But as for will it still clear coilover, that won't change.

    Steering - I want to go backwards

    The X7 rack has a longer center section and a shorter housing.

    Steering - I want to go backwards

    I am running 1 3/4" wider than stock but they go wider. My wheels are 17x8 +15, team burst spec-ish. They allow for good clearance and angle with plenty of front grip for reverse entries.
