Wasn't the general consensus that s-bars don't
do a thing at this scale?

Just bought a swag of stuff at egr too... :(

Didn't GPM have something like that first?

Yes marc, with different thickness options too. This one looks heavier too, but stronger more resistant. I have the GPM for a long time and never had an issue with it, but I think GPM dos not make it any more, at least is not on the market.
This one looks fine to me. What I want to know is, if that s-bar comes included? If not, what bran it is? Perhaps Atomic too? Maybe Ton has the answer! Very interesting s-bar.
Cheers

I see that on this one the OM lower plastic arm has to be remove, I like that over the GPM.
Cheers.

Oh Yeaaaa..... This is a long time awaited part.
Although It seems too thick... I think.

I liked more the GPM...
I dont understand why GPM discontinued it... :(

I like the ATM one more then the GPM. The GPM acts more like a spacer than an actual front chassis replacement. People usually would only get this when they break their chassis. The thickness looks like it can hold the knuckle in place better than the GPM and not have slop. Although it does look chunky and heavy.

phea,
I agree with ya, and will like to add, that this ATM seems to be like a bumper as well.

The added weight may help balance the 94mm cars better, and make them just as good as the 94mm cars without it...

I could use one of these as my chassis has some slop there.

But where can one be bought? Can't seem to locate one...

I just installed both of these in my mini z today. The front lower tower bar fits perfect! It mounts flush with the chase and its pretty light. As far as the front roll bar goes I did notice a little more under steer when I installed it. Here are some pics hope this helps!

Where can I find this beauty? I've been driving with a glued lower front knuckle holder for awhile.

My experience with this product is after a few knocks, especially below... the aluminium will dent or warp!!!

Mine dented and alignment when off and i am down to purchase a new chasis!!!

Only buy or use it if your front below chasis is gone case and you need replace, then use it cause you have to cut the original knuckles hole and fit the atomic ones. So if you have a new and good chasis do not waste your time in cutting the chasis!!!

On the whole I'd have to agree with what Darth_hell says. In my case, I had tons of slop in the lower mountings on my chassis, so adding this removed the slop and made my front end tight again.

As for warping, I have not experienced any problems, but I am racing solely on RCP these days, so there's nothing to hit hard enough to damage it. If you race on asphalt, it might be a different story.

Overall, I'm satisfied...

Agreed. A good fix if your car is broken. Mine has been absolutely perfect and fixed my problem, but like ianc, I only race on RCP.

I would like to mention that if the aluminum bent during your wreck, its likely the plastic would have been broken otherwise. I'd like to see a carbon version of this!
