Blade ARB's

Are these possible to fit onto a Corrado, been highly adjustable they suit perfectly.

I imagine the rear would be fairly easily to do but how about the front.

Its a flat blade, kinda like a knife.

Positioned / that way is stiffer than _ that way, and anywhere in between.

No i know i was just adding some info/explanation behind the theory of how it all works.

The 1's i can find in pics are not the same as the 1 i have seen on a Astra Mk3 of all cars and the 1 i am looking for, possibly but i very much doubt it they may have a different name.

All i know is this kid had his dad build him this Astra and his dad worked for somebody who did stuff for BTCC kind of thing, maybe even prepping the cars, dont know the full story, all i know it was loody quick and did not have a C20LET either and handled brilliantly.

Ah I see now. Seems to me to be just another way to skin the same cat mate. Just stick to the tried and tested ones we all know and love Very Happy

Although you can always fit a tubular one..... or design your own hydraulic one if you wanna go balls out!

I thought you had the Neuspeed? That's solid. I really must get another Neuspeed. Got an Eibach at the moment, but the NSpeed is loads better.

Going to lay the car up in a month or so to fit the new turbo manifold etc, but at the same time I'm going to weld in some triangulated braces front and rear + a big rear ARB, probs tubular or 28mm rear arb. Keeping the stock front 20mm fella as I hate understeer.

Those blade ARBs are employed by a whole host of different racing companies. They're on everything from the knackered 1970s spec old Van Diemen single seater racer we have at uni to the BTCC cars (know the owner of the Halford Hondas!). Can't remember if they use them in GT though, I've only seen the uprights for those, and not the ARBs.

Ah well if you put it that way then i see what your saying, as you can see the Neuspeed looks like a tube lol.

Like i said i dont know the full story boostmonkey. When chatting to the kid he didnt like to disclose alot of details.

fair enough Si, I think the Team Halfords Chief Engineer redesigned the whle rear suspension for the car, as they can use whatever suspension they want as long as they use the standard pick up points on the chassis. Yeah, I don't think many people like to talk about it too much as a lot of them design stuff in house, but it's good that you got a little info out of him!
