I acquired them years ago... some 7 years now. back when a company called F2 was around and offered turn key transmissions. my 2nd gear synchro's were going bad and needed a rebuild / new transmission but due to temporary living in another state doing something I needed my car (Was a installer for alarm systems) I needed something I could install in less than 48 hours and work.

I got the transmission from them and had them install the 4.10 gears. Thinking on it I should have had them put in the LSD also. Since they were rebuilding it already their was no charge for installation just the raw cost of the parts.

I like it, although I am told once I go FI the 4.10 gears will make first almost useless. but being NA at the moment I like it. Doing an autoX event it put me in 3rd gear the whole time where I could see if I was on stock gears 3rd would be to high and 2nd would run out of gas.

My PMG I am seeing on average is about 28-26 MPG. I think I took about a 1MPG hit. I am at 3k RPM in 5th gear when at about 70ish (due to tire size and gears my speedo is not all that accurate)

Yea I jump in and out of the other forums when I see something interesting or something that I can actually contribute (or think I can contribute to). I am usually always on but more in the off topic areas or trying to see if anyone local is selling some cheap stock rims.

Magus2727 I really need to get some camber in the rear. after a track day my tires show that I need a bit more camber. But I also am reminded that I need to get something better than All Season performance tires. As great at the Potenza RE960AS Pole Position's are I need some sticky tires ( Toyo R1R or R888). but that's money also.

I was looking at least getting camber bolts to dial in a bit but still even though the $ is not there the time is.

I'm in need of camber and I cannot find the LCR plates.
I like them a lot. I have not had time to play with the camber much at all. I have them only out a few threads so the camber plates are doing most the work. 2.2 deg on one side and 2.4 deg on the other. using the camber plates at full neg camber. this is about the same as they gave me when I was on stock arms.

I want to add in more camber from the arms and then zero out the plates a bit more. Its easier to make camber adjustments from the plates then it is with the arms. but once again I have not had the time. Last semester of my masters program, Sold house, building new one and current living situation is a bit difficult to work on the car. Come August though when I am not working on trying to put in sod before winter I will have the camber worked out.

To be honest I am not sure if I feel much of a difference. but I also was coming from having my car on blocks for 2.5 years and then had all sorts of things done to it when I started driving it again. I really like the arms and like knowing that they will be easier to service then the old arms.

The arms are good quality, the price is a bit steep. If C-F-M had the oil pump gear I would have likely gotten that over the arms and worked on drilling out my old arms a bit harder. but I had the budget for something in that range and wanted to keep it towards the car.

I really need to update this build thread... but see the don't have much time bit...
