Recently I purchased a set of Techno Toy Tuning rear lower control arms and decided to have some bushes made.
As I have a Ron Tyler type diff mount I thought that the rear diff cross member was redundant.
The design of the bushes combines the clamp and bush for a neater fit, this also gives added strength and allows the rear roll centre to be raised a bit.
If you're interested I had Chris Woods make them.

cheers,
Sinisha

Hi John,

I have their front lower control arms and caster rods as well.
Contacted them and spoke about what I was doing with my car, they explained that their products are used on cars raced in desert rallies
and are over engineered for most applications.
So I thought, price is good, product looks OK, give them a try.

Sorry to be asking again.

Cheers

Sinisha,

Are you trying to reduce the distance between the CoG and Roll Axis (by raising the rear RC), or are you trying the bring it to a similar height compared to the front RC (assuming the front RC is higher than the rear RC)?

I habe always been worried that the two adjustable bolts on either side are not strong enough for big HP cars. Hence I have shyed away from this set up. But those bolts look pretty big Sinisha. It's probably a non issue anyway. Nice set up.
I haven't spoken to Gorden yet. How did you go at sandown on Sunday?

I will try and answer all the questions,

    John, it seems your line of questioning is leading to a comment from me on the quality of the parts (would that be right?)
              From what I can tell they are well made (a little heavy) and I would recommend them to others.
              If you want to have a look for yourself PM me and we can arrange a viewing.

    Dazda, The change is small so I don't expect a significant difference in car handling, but the aim is to get the RC closer to CoG to reduce the roll moment.
                I have done the same to the front and that certainly improved the handling.

    Craig, I'm not sure which bolts you are referring to, do you mean the bolts that hold the clamps in place?
              My best lap was a 1:22.7, a bit disapointing, but the tyres are getting on a bit.

    cheers,
    Sinisha

Thanks Sinisha,

Sorry if it came across a bit twisted, I was looking at them for a long time but didnt know anyone who had ordered installed and used them.

I will definately take you up on that offer.

Cheers

John
