  • GKTech roll center correction kit

    Many of you might have seen this already, but just fyi.

    Interesting. I hope someone from the board buys a set when they are shipping and posts a review. I wouldn't mind more turning angle, though I don't know if my current front wheel/tire would rub with more angle.

      I believe someone's complaint on here was that it adds a bit of weight whereas you're better off just buying the knuckles for 'proper' RC correction. It's probably a nice quick and dirty way for correction though.

        I ordered the s13 version as soon as I found out they became available:

        40mm of roll center correction
        40mm of bump steer correction
        up to 60deg of steering angle

        They show as backordered on their site, but eta of late January when you place the order.

        My justification is that they are on introductory sale, will be easily resellable, and are a bargain for both roll center and bump steer correction.

        This is a "tide me over" purchase, and I will likely buy their full knuckle kit later - unless some type of double wishbone setup becomes available in the next few months.

        I would have ordered the knuckle kit, but I'm not sure just which configuration I'll need, and can't justify the expenditure right now (due to holiday spending, etc).

          Seems like these would increase your scrub radius quite a bit..?

          I am going back and forth between getting these or modifying GS arms for roll center correction.

            Shipping is quite a killer...

            perhaps some of us could order together to save $ on shipping a little?

              What do you guys think about GKtechs new s14 lowercontrol arm in conjunction with the roll center correction piece?

                I wonder if they used high misalignment sphericals on the outboard link... I'm also not crazy about the inner link not being adjustable in length.

                  I tried to do that with a few of the spindles some of us on here got. They told me that the savings would be very small, so we never ended up doing it.

                    Enjuku will carry the pieces when they're open to the public. I wish I could have gotten the prebuy price. Based off enjukus pricing, itll still save about $30 vs buying through gk and having them shipped here.

                        Would you say is that louder over the stock fan or not ?

                          I got an email that these are finally shipping.

                          I'll post a review once I get them installed...

                              So I've been eyeing these. Looks like the full spindles are no more due to cost overruns. I'm not thrilled about pushing the spindles out 25mm, that will probably require me to get overfenders. Too bad I missed the spindle boat.
