Default STI RA Spec C Limited front sub frame differences?

i've read in numerous publications (EVO, for example) that Spec C Limited has a new front subframe that moves the front wheels forward about an inch. I assume, more caster and longer wheelbase being the result.

Anyone know what was actually done? Were the actual chassis mounting points revised? Or is the front control arm just different?

Spec c doesn't have a subframe. This is for weight reduction. The wheels are more forward than regular rex yes. But it is just the a-arm link and bushings doing this. "KINDA" similiar to an ALK or perrin's "don't call it" ALK.

thanks, I was aware that the Spec C didn't have the crash protection sub frame. It was refered to as such in EVO, so I was thinking they might have new control arms or something.

So just the link hm?
