Waiting for reviews from you gents. I hope this will not add any NVH to stock.

With poly FCABs, we have to worry about the bushings sliding out of the retainers. To those who understand FCAB design, would I have to worry about that with these TMS FCABs?

Options already exist

I'm not convinced on the BW track record (see RTAB thread) and the Dinans have a solid reputation...I'm just not ready to drop ~$500 on some RTABs..

That's why I never buy from dinan. Over priced products when there's other similar alternatives

Bimmerworld's monoball RTAB is not a similar product-- it uses a shitty monoball that makes noise quickly.

The Syncro Design Works Monoball RTAB is a similar product (OE monoballs) for cheaper than Dinan's.

I agree Dinan is generally a ripoff. But, there was also a 10+ year span where nobody else made a monoball RTAB for this chassis! So, credit where credit's due-- they originated the idea and executed it well.

My set of these (TMS FCABs) is in the mail!

So for track only cars - these or the BW Solid Delrin? Does the fcab need rotation in more than one axis?
