Push the arms all the way in. It should be close unless the atomic arm is wider than stock

looks like the longer than original PN AA toe bars are the perfect fit here! 0 degrees fits great with about 1ish camber.
tried narrow 0 key holes and looks like it gives closer to 2 (even2+) than 1 degree but no biggie, just wedged a kyosho dark green shim between slide bar and center guide on tower bar as guide and camber looks pretty good now.

Im thinking the question that needs to be asked...is Reflex going to make/come out with this and other parts anymore? I have some of there parts and like them but on there site, looks like they are doing mostly 10th scale and no action on the mini-z? Would like to know. Reflex does a nice job with the Zs...hope they dont stop.

State of Mini-Z

Hey, just to shed a little light.

We are not stopping our mini-z line, we are however slowing down on the development of parts.

The reality of it all is that the Mini-Z market is not what it used to be. Our sales at the beginning of last year were 100% Mini-Z, where now they are only about 15%. Contrary to what other brands want to claim, Mini-Z is a rapidly shrinking market right now. In the future, it might come back, or it might just have settled in to the market size it is now.

In an effort to stay in business, we re-focused into a growing market, where we have carved a nice little niche and are experiencing growth which we never really had with the Z's. What this does for us is give us financial stability in order to be able to not only stay in business, but also develop parts for the Mini-Z once in a while until the market hits another upswing.

Reflex survived the worse part of the Global economic crash and we are lining ourselves up to be bigger and better in the coming years. Hopefully the Mini-Z survives as well in the Western-World Markets. If not, we will still be happy supplying our friends in Asia and wherever the small pockets of Mini-Z enthusiasts may remain here and in Europe.

With that, I do have a few new items coming up within the next month or two. We just had to ensure we sold out of our previous generation items so that we could move on with the newer, improved products.

Next up is the DPS/Tri shock. This should be available in about 3 weeks. Following that will be the re-release of the raised lower tower bar. If these items sell well, we will move on a new, bigger project that is very, very cool as well.

I realize this thread is for the 03 lower front tower bar, but could you provide us with any news about the DPS/Tri shock you're set to be releasing soon? What's new/ what's different? Thank you!

I have set a pre-order for the raised lower tower bar on the store. These should be ready in about 3-4 weeks.

The new DPS should be ready in about 10 days. We had a problem with the dimensions of the first production so we had to have it re-made. They are almost done.
