advantages of this setup:

By lowering the outer end of the control arm you stop this positive camber situation happening....

I was about to ask about these. I'm glad to see your picking the project back up.

Hey Chuck, glad to hear your working on the control arms again. Do you know if they will work on a B14? It is my understanding that the only difference between the B13 and B14 control arm is a marginal difference in length. The pickup points are the same, but the B14 arm I think is like a 1/4" longer. Seeing as how you increased the length of these modified arms to increase track width, perhaps they will work for the B14? If so, I will gladly send you money as soon as possible for a set. I have been dying to get my hands on a set of adjustable control arms!!!!!!!

Yeah, I may be in on this one to, along with bumpsteer kit. I want as much as I can on the NX to improve handling. What I would love are some offset ear/mounts for the rear struts to make room. If someone would sell kits with these by using cores I bet they would sell like crazy. I want 225/50/15 rear tires in the back.

my tester guy hasn't got back to me.

i am going to sell the 4 proto type sets i have for $275ea + shipping

these are ugly, not painted, will reduce turning radius and are ment for track use only i cannot do hundreds of thousand of miles testing like factory. if these were to fail i would like it to happen on the track where innocent bystanders are less likely to be harmed, and everyone on the track has some inclination to expect the unexpected.

i'll put up some pics soon

Is there a list for the 4 takers of the test sets? I'd be interested.

Do these sets allow mounting of the stock swaybar (and clearing it)?

Thank you.
