Arched A arms

Hey trying to get a feel for if anyone would be interested in new front A arms for the havoc. Working with JAK motorsports in developing front A arms that would allow up to 32inch tires. Post to the thread to let me know if theres a good market for it so we can move ahead with the project
Thanks guys

If they developed a Strong, Safe, reasonably priced A-arm (Green to Match) I would love 30" Tires when my 28"s wear out!
Is it a lift kit?
Would the Arms be longer? Machine be wider? All 4 would have to be replaced?

No we are focusing only on the front. The machine will stay the same width so we can use all stock axles brake lines and so on. So what it will be is new front a arms that are angled foward about an inch to 1.5 inches to clear bigger tires. He already makes lift kits for the honda P5 that have adjustable hime joints and that are powder coated. I'll try to post some of the pics

He does nice work! I'm sure you know Textron had an A-arm recall. Mine appear very Heavy Duty Cast. (I'm sure there's a reason) will the new ones be as strong? How will you test them? And $$$$ reasonable? Thanks, Tom

I think it's a good idea. Not sure if I would buy as mine only has 27s on it and I would only like to go to a true 28, but I think having the option is great.

As of right now he has a green but we havent tested a peice to see how close it is to the havoc green. He is still working on his last couple of orders for the p5s. We are going to start on the havocs in about 2 weeks
