I know the stock design is supposedly weak but what do you gain by going to aftermarket LCA's? Can the car launch harder? Why? How does it affect cornering?

Well, one problem is that the larger aftermarket rear sway bars will -destroy- the crappy stock control arms. That's a fairly good reason to upgrade [img]smile.gif[/img]

But yes, you'll launch a bit better too, less bind, etc...depending what kind you get... I mainly stoplight race so I spent the extra $ on the global west arms, best you can get and no bind thanks to the kinds of bushings they use (spherical aluminum on one end, del-a-lums on the other)
