Anyone noticed these new LCAs and caster rods from T3? Looks pretty interesting, no stock parts used, haven't seen any like this before...

That is pretty cool.
Doesn't look like a factory ball joint. Also I like the idea of "bump steer"/ roll centre adjustment.
Wouldn't work on a Datsport style front end.

they look really good. I was just checking out there other stuff as well. i honestly didn't know they made that much stuff. I might grab myself a universal transmission mount as they look quite neat and there is no welds for anyone to pick on. does anyone know what there front camber plates are like?

my only shite comment is you need to run boots over the rose joints to be legal in NSW (don't know about other states). That's a fair few boots, and if they're anything like the T3 castor rods I have, they were a pain to source and install the boots.

Apart from that, they look epic. I would run if I had a race 1600. Probably not for road.

Yeah I like the idea of bushes for a street car, wonder how noisy all those rose joints would be?

I've got rose joints on the castor rods. don't think it will make much difference, but I'm certain you will notice a big difference If you had all that in the front end.
