Active Hobby R31 suspension Link (1)

Active Hobby R31 suspension Link (1)Active Hobby Japan has announced an upcoming release for the Street Jam OTA-R31 and Kazama GP-X chassis. The new left and right suspension linkage system significantly improves traction by utilizing dynamic camber characteristics. The camber will change depending on chassis roll and load. The new suspension linkages are compatible for both front and rear of the chassis. These are machined from high quality aluminum and made to fit R31 and GPX chassis. These will improve the traction on both front or rear depending on which side they are mounted on. Pay attention to limitations of these parts. They may only be compatible with alloy parts and without any carbon stiffeners on the bulkheads.

      1. I agree. But I’d like to add the dynamic camber angels when transferring side to side. This helps get that weight shifted easier. When one side of the car is unloaded, the cross linkage pushes the camber angle on the opposite side to get that extra lean into the turn. I must say, this is most preferred for CS drifting. Although 50/50 drifting is still benefit.
        Thumbs up for Active Hobbies for creating such a system. I’ll save $100 just for this. I may need to invest another $100 for my eagle chassis.

        1. Correct! that is a good breakdown of how it works, thanks for the quick explanation 🙂
          Let us know how it works, I have always wondered how effective this would be. It might be better for TC Racing help eliminate traction roll and gain more cornering traction. Update would be appreciated 🙂

    1. Maybe, but more than likely you will run into issues with screw alignments or you could be lucky and have no issue.
