G40 Adjustable TCA
« on: March 28, 2012, 01:07:46 pm »
All,

We’re now in a position to start gathering numbers for our first batch of adjustable track control arms. These are primarily designed for track use in addition to a stage 3 subframe. This then allows camber and castor adjustment.
The exact camber adjustment will depend entirely on top mount used and current castor angle, I run -3.5° on my car (PPP top mounts), Andy runs -1° on his (standard top mounts) which was corrected from +0.6°

The TCA is adjustable on vehicle, and is secured with two locking nuts (similar to the compression strut on a Stage 3 Subframe), it is supplied with a standard rubber OEM bush- we highly recommend a nylon replacement (which we can supply separately).

As usual the rose joint is a standard off the shelf item, with a rubber boot- all replacement parts found at Rally Design, Demon Tweeks etc, so no expensive repairs- I’m trying to find a supplier for ball joints currently to give a 100% serviceable arm.

Price is circa £200 + postage, dependant on the discount we can get for bulk buy of stock parts.

Please only put your name down if you have cash- and can wait ~8 weeks from point of order for delivery.

Many Thanks,

Pete

As fitted to my car- please note the chassis TCA mount/ Subframe mount is enlarged to 13mm to accomodate a stronger bolt for the rose joint.

I'm a definite.  I already have nylon bushes.  Soon the better, but I can wait the 8 weeks.

I'll be running these stock length, with the ARB, I just want the inner rose joint and it's circa same price for g-lader site items.

Is there and chance of getting a set sooner? All my suspension stuff is here so I'm desperate to get it together?

Hi Pete,
 
 Any updates on these? looking at the design would they be useable with a stock ARB? I know its probably not the ''best'' setup but is it an option?


Thanks

We can do small runs of 3 sets - but these are for off-highway use only, just done a run of 3 for a few people.

Ill take a set depending on price and would they work on a stage 2 subframe?

Price for a run of 3 is £225 + Postage (approx £15 to Mainland UK).

These will work with a stage 2 subframe, but you're limited by the amount of camber you can run as the ARB isn't adjustable!

I'll be running mine with stage 2, I just want the big beefy joints and the ability to adjust in future.
