Awesomatix flexible ball stud, wrench & ceramic bearings

From Awesomatix, their new FBS set is a very unique design of a dynamic acting ball stud for the suspension. The O-Ring inside the capsuled steel housing allows a movement of the actual ball stud into every direction. Furthermore the O-Ring provides the needed damping effect. It can be beneficial in certain conditions, such as lower grip or on very special asphalt/carpet surfaces. Additionally, it reduces the peak load on the suspension link at crashes. Depending where the studs are installed, there are different effects. Basically, the Ball Studs can be used in every position of the car where normal ST24 is in use. Also new is a 5,5mm / 6,5mm / 7,0mm multi tool wrench which is made from high grade stainless steel with laser engraved logo. Highly recommended for the FBS (Flexible Ball Stud) assembly as well as for AT21/AT21ST-A installation on the chassis. Finally there are new high quality ball bearings with Si3N4 ceramic balls. The optimum to reduce the friction of your A800 drivetrain. Especially useful for any stock class competition where the lowest friction of the drivetrain will result in higher top speed and more consistent power for the runtime. Featuring a black rubber seal on one side and metal seal on the other side.
