Brian, they are pretty much the same geometry. Just takes variables out of the equation. Much easier to adjust geometry with the other parts.

Arch, it should be about 1 to 2 weeks. From what I am told, they are almost ready.

I have found that in this hobby, if you want something you cant wait... otherwise it may disappear, sometimes for good . Ive lost out on a lot of items because of the same reasons. With the small runs that these parts are produced, you have to get them before they are gone. This is one reason why I rarely sell my cars and parts, because sometimes I want a specific part that is no longer available... This is one reasons why I really like pre-orders. It gives you a chance to work out the budget for the new parts before they are available.

found out today that this spring/long king pin setup does function under the new Honda HSV autoscale. cutting clearance holes will solve the problem but there is no way in hell i'm cutting into the top of a new $50 autosacle so i'm off to find a new front suspension unless there are options?

Here you go, $50.00 with 2 holes! This is just my back up car since I don't fell comfortable as my main Mod race car. This body just grabs the rails too violent in this sharp edge front fenders especially in a tight layout. Fast open Layout works better.

Doesn't look like you're off by much. Really can't bring yourself to grind a little bit of clearance into the shell? I would say you need less than 1mm for sufficient clearance, that's definitely not going to be visible from outside.

For a marginally shorter kingpin, you might look into popping a Delrin ball (Reflex, PN, what have you) and putting a Kyosho kingpin through that. It shortens the height of the spring-over configuration somewhere from 1-2mm, and that should be enough for you to clear the HSV even without grinding!

it hits right at the down turn. in the picture, it looks like the plastic is thinner at this area.

my HSV looks very much like yours machgo5go. i cut the front splitter down to about 3mm in width and rounded the shape parallel to the nose. i ran it stock all day yesterday and it does instantly grab the rails but in truth, shouldn't be riding the rails anyway.
