New type of rear toe link brace

Phil,

Link arm is now firmly held at the hub. This was previously the weak link after the inboard was put in double shear.
We are confident that the arm fixing at the hub will not move (19mm en-25 steel with hub taper and 12mm fine threads). 2 years on 2 race cars has proven it. And the US (the best) chrom moly Heim rod ends on our recent class winner in the gruelling Bathurst 12hr are as good as new.

And a bonus is it is lighter than stock.


Some pics of the SSC rear toe link brace testing for your enjoyment.
