If testing proves fruitful, I will want a setup. The only thing the pricing will dictate is how soon I can order it.That is a good question, we are concerned that the complexity of the upgrade may drive the cost to be too high to be practical.
After testing we will pull a complete kit, price out each individual part, and cross our fingers. As of now, I don't have a good feeling of cost but it is going to be high.
Unless you do some serious fabrication and welding, camber plates won't mount on the Goblin in stock form. Most camber plates are at least 4 plus inches across with 3 or more mounting studs/bolts. The stock strut mount on the Goblin is about 2 inches and an aluminum adapter plate is bolted to it. If you chance to see this in person you would understand that a camber plate will not bolt up.This looks pretty awesome, even just the first idea you had with just the replacement control arms. I may try to get ZZP's control arms if they ever become available again.
My 06 SS has the complete BC coilover kit on it including the camber plates at the top. I wonder if there would be some way to be able to bolt those camber plates to the top at the back of the Goblin? I don't have welding or fabrication skills myself unfortunately; I put parts together and take them apart and appropriate them for out-of-box uses, and some electronics and ECM programming.
Have you made these yet, zzp tubular control arms are on back order with no eta, I’m literally almost done and just ordered a new trans from you guys too this would be perfect time to install a set of these
OTTP make spherical heims too, that are more beefy than the moog’s. Either one take almost all unnecessary movement out of the arms though.For now I'm planning on getting the Moog spherical joints and maybe the ZZP rotation ones for the other end. That ought to take any play out of it. I got to see Lonny's prototype though, very cool. Just not sure I'll have the $$$ for it lol
Justin said the subframe is about 20lbs lighter here: https://dfkitcar.com/forum/index.php?threads/justin-reed-racing-df-goblin.45/page-5#post-75831Lonny, what is the weight of the subframe - minus the LCAs? Curious to know how much lighter it is than the Cobalt subframe (which I've weighed out at around 40 lbs.).
What diameter tube did you use - looks like 2 inch?
