    Hey guys just to keep you all in the loop. I have signed off on the final design/drawing and paid for the order so the next step is delivery of the prototype which I'm told will be ready in twenty days.

    At this point I have fourteen pairs sold via group buy and eleven pairs available.

    I will honour the Group buy price $395/pair up until I receive the stock here in AUS. Once they're "in stock" the price will go up to $495.

    Send me a PM if you want in on the group buy; this is the best FUCA available for your car and a good deal cheaper than buying midori style from the USA.

    One things obvious, they'll be a pita to adjust on car.

    Yep. Shane since you need more negative camber for the race car, why not just keep the stock arms and put nismo bushes in them?

    Wouldn't be anywhere near enough, I've now got the UAS Race version FUCA's installed, dialled in around 4.5degs, previously had camber bolts, only gave me about 1deg.

    Super pro bushes gets it about 3.5 negative camber at 30mm tyre to guard clearance ride height
    Since these camber arms are offroad use only, wouldn't you just make them as small as possible on the bench and run max camber on a track car, I guess If you where constantly adjusting camber then yeah GKTech would be harder than UAS, but most people would set the camber once set toe and never touch them again. Is that what makes UAS camber arms the best on the market, ease of adjustability?

    Mine is onroad racing, not offroad racing. Regardless I really doubt you would get 3.5degs from bushes alone. Pretty sure my camber bolts/bushes are SuperPro, and no where near 3.5degs.

    If you've got no idea what you're doing and want a car that is not going to handle nearly as well as it could, sure.
    More camber does not always equal better handling. TBH I'll quite possibly dial down from the current 4.5degs once I get it on track for a test day.
    Also the best setting for one track may not suit another track. Each track has it's own characteristics. So yes these may be adjusted multiple times during the year for different tracks.

    -Can be adjusted on car
    -Better clearance of mounting bracket (more relevant to lowered cars)
    -Less restricted movement
    -zinc plating is a more durable finish than powder coat but that’s probably less important

    Hey guys just an update. The sample has been completed (and right on schedule) and is on way so I can do a final test fit etc then we’re good for production run.

    Hey guys got the sample today -really nice dealing with professionals! Finish etc is all good and adjustable length works out to be from a little shorter than stock out to at least 190mm (could safely go longer while retaining adequate purchase length) so I'm happy with how everything has turned out. I have asked for a slight "tightening up" of the centre pivoting section -this isn't a problem or anything but it's been manufactured with a little more slop than I would like and this is why we do samples first!

    So all tracking well and another spot has been snapped up by an SAUer so eight to go.
