What all needed swapped? Knuckle, control arm, outer tie rod.

I assume splines are the same?

Nope I would crack new name brand top hats on stage. Hit a ditch or a large hole and they would let loose. Top hats would then drop out of the strut and destroy my shock. I had to rebuild my front shocks three times due to the factory top hats. Zero top hat failures after switching to subi hats

Finished 100 acre woods rally two weeks ago, we didn't get the points we wanted, but we finished. The car snapped the tbody on stage 3, and left us stranded for 30 minutes. I was smart enough to have brought my laptop and was able to reprogram the ecu to limit at 3000 rpm. So we finished that stage and the next two at 3k. Which pushed us to the back of the class.

Back in service I was lucky enough to have brought a spare stock t body, and we were back in business, unfortunately the time deficit was too great, but we finished and learn a lot. Up next is installing a close ratio 3,4,5 gear set to get some much needed speed.

We finished all the stages at Olympus and pushed hard on day 2. ( we caught and passed 3 cars on day1). Unfortunately the day 1 hold ups keep us off the national podium. We finished exactly 2.0 seconds off of 3rd place after 2 days and 130 miles of racing on stage. The car is finally coming together and working so much better than last year We installed the mfactory 3 4 5 close ratio gears and are still using the ford racing 4.06 f.d . I was able to hit a top speed of 95 mph stage, at 100 acre woods we only hit 84 mph. So the gearing is a tremendous help.
