great parts that came from Mcmaster
Actually, if we bought the parts there we would hardly make any money (buying larger quantities helps a little), especially after you add up all the hardware and custom spacers required (the picture does not the full assembly). Not to mention the time one would need to spend researching.

Now, getting back to business.
For those that placed the orders yesterday, thank you, the parts will ship today.

Poltec, how do your rear end links differ from the aftermarket STI links that come with the six piece rear kit?

What kind of handling difference is there?

If I do not compete, is this a wise investment in handling?

When I looked up the parts on McMaster's site (page 1048), the high capacity SS metric ones ran about 34 bucks per piece, so for two complete links it worked out to over $120 I haven't found a high quality alternative to these yet. After about 3 hours of research, this seems like a decent deal for the links.

Are you referring to the pink STi control arm kit? If so, our links for the USDM STi will not be suitable for this application since the links for the pink set are much longer. However, we just did a prototype replacement for one of the members of this board and if everything works out we may start offering those as well.

With that said, the stock links are quite good but our links offer about twice the load carrying capacity and you can adjust their length to eliminate away bar preload.

Is that a stabi bar from an 04? The angle is screwed up... look at that and ask yourself how that can possibly offer any roll control. Either that or the stock suspension has a lot of droop in it... Maybe I'm just used to seeing mine that takes about one pump to get the tires in the air.

This is the set up that I mentioned, OvRclockR should receive the first prototype today, and if everything works out, we will start selling it in March. I do have one more prototype ready; send me an email if you want it.

Regarding the box, we also plan on selling it starting in March, it would be made from billet aluminum.

Ok I am a bit confused, but this picture was taken while the car was in the air. Does that change anything?

Poltect PM'd you.

I'll post pictures with the prototype installed this weekend.

Nivek-CA, Your rear sway bar has a wierd downward angle. Especially for 22mm setting. I believe the ends of the sway bar are suppose to be parrallel to the floor. Anybody have something to say about this?

If it's off the ground, then it should appear as it does in that picture.

I thought the official way io install sway bars is to install it with the car on the ground on a flat surface.

With the car on the ground. You have to get dirty and lay on the ground.

Adam,
I sent you an email.

Albert has reported some clunking from bottom side of the link (apparently something is loose). I just shipped him a new prototype that should adress the issue (it uses different bushings). It looks like it will be another couple of days before we find out.

I have an update for those that want end links for the STi V8 controll arm set (see picture below).



OvRclockR has reported that the second set of prototypes does not have any clunking so far and is working as intended. He has also made a few sugestions about the links that we will incorporate in our final design. For those that would be interested in purchasing those links, they will be available by the end of the next week and we will have a promotion for the firs 5 customers. Contact us for pictures or if you would like to pre-order them.

Just to clarify, this will not include the pink "box" that the links mount to, the box should be available by March 15-th.

Poltec,

Could you PM me... I'd like a set of the front links and rear links for the STi 6 piece set. I'd be willing to test fit some for you and give feed back as I'll be corner weighting my car in a couple weeks myself and be at the track the first weekend in April.

Nivtek, it looks like you're using a mismatch of parts or something. Like the pink links you're using are from a 03 and the stabi bar is from a 04.

Take a picture of the car on the ground under compression and that'll be the only way to know since I'm used to the reduced droop of my suspension. The stabi end-parts don't have to be parallel to the ground but the closer they are to being parallel with the endlinks the more the system will bind up when it moves around.
