This thing is awesome. Needed to do something with my front end setup, was going to get some 1 degree camber knuckles when I was made aware of this part...I was kinda worried about not getting the right knuckles and having to spend twice as much. Ended up going for the tower bar, set it to 1 degree initially and found that I needed 2! So thanks Reflex Racing, you already saved me at least 5 dollars or so

Very simple install, no issues there. The key is brilliant, bar holds it's setting just fine and the part looks great on my chassis. I'm the first person at my club to use it and a few others are already interested after running it at one race

Can this work with the narrow front end setup? (or does it lose too much range?)

It works for narrow just fine. I ran narrow with 2d camber and 4d castor with no problems.

I had to shave a little material from the sides of the chassis to get it the right spacing for narrow, but it worked.

just so someone else doesn't make the same mistake i did, the RR stainless steel upper arm pins are NOT compatible with the upper arms. this is mentioned in the RR shop listing but i didn't buy from RR so missed that little nugget of truth.

anyhow, cristian mentioned i could sand the pins down with some fine grit paper and polish them up to fit and after about 20 minutes of sanding and polishing, they fit like a charm. thanks for the advice

This mod does NOT fit under a Mazda 787B body!!!!
I purchased it and it hits the body badly. Not willing to cut a slotted hole to make work. Purchased PN Camber/Castor alloy arms instead.....

Have you lowered the body? If the case is that it hits we found that slight shaving can help out, no need to cut a slot in the body. If you are not willing to do this, then definitely you won't be able to make it work. Much like our tri-shock it is not designed around LM Bodies, so without some modding it won't fit.

Our parts are designed for racing, and sometimes there are compromises that need to be made in order to provide a more adjustable part, that offers better value. Does your PN Tower bar provide adjustable camber? No. Does it do narrow settings? No. The compromise from PN is that even though it fits underneath all bodies, in order to get these other adjustments, you would have to spend 13.00 more to do narrow and 87.00 to do all the camber settings that this bar does. So when you look at it this way, if you want all the adjustability, you have to spend an extra 100.00 dollars. For that price, I'll buy 2 more brand new Mazda Autoscales...

RR has instructions in their setup section, i think it is. links in shop listings to instructions would be nice vs. hunting for them.

Is the option key for this product out yet? (Optional 0.5,1.5,2.0 and 2.5 deg Key).

Also how do you tell what caster angel the car is at? I noticed there is some of the caster plate showing in front or behind (depending on the orientation) the sliding camber arms if your looking above it. I'm assuming if you see the the plate in front of the arm is 4 caster?
