PN Double A-Arm Front Suspension

This is redundant, but here it is just for official introduction. The other thread kind of stole the thunder already. And never mind is already sold out.

This is a significant new product for mini-z. For the first time, there is a sophisticated suspension comprable to 1/10 scale. Mini-z has moved beyond primative sliding knuckle suspension. The last time a full scale car had a sliding knucke suspension was the Morgan 3 wheeler around the 30's. I don't think a double A-arm suspension in this scale has ever been produced.
Base on initial feedback, the performance increase is significant. Phil said he was almost beating his best lap time as soon as it was installed. After some tuning, he got a best time. Not only the best time, but almost much matching it lap after lap because the performance was consistent. This suspension can be a game changer. Mini-z might have turned the corner into more sophisticated suspensions. We will see.

What about the extended lower arms, when will those be available?

Also, does this front end use standard springs like the king pin front end or will you be releasing a spring set just for the a-arm front end?

Thank you.

it looks awsome! at what point does all this become over complicated though?

i'm afraid to ask what this will cost? pn isn't cheap but in my experience, you pay for the quality and excellence in design.
