    Thanks Serban, have these been in use with the Rossions as a "stock" item, or something you are just now offering as a viable option for both the Rossion's and Noble's ? Further, has Rossion run these on track for any appreciable period of time or miles ?

    Otherwise, hope you all are well !

    IMO, there is no way solid bushings like that could be used on a car intended for street driving--they would deliver way too harsh a ride. OK (and best) for smooth tracks .

    The new bushings have been tested on our track/road going Q1 test vehicle and we have been very impressed with the improved ride quality and steering feel even on the street. These are high quality bushings that have been manufactured for Rossion by a company that manufactures aftermarket bushings for Porsche, BMW, Ford, and Subaru. We are currently offering them for "off road use only" and will be offering them as optional equipment on Rossion product for now.

    If any Noble or Rossion owners would like to drive our Q1 with the new bushings, please feel free to contact us at anytime and go for a drive.

    I have no personal experience with poly a-arm bushings, but lots of experience using poly for antiroll bar pivot and end link bushings. My take is that, in this application, they might be a nice compromise between softish rubber and using brutally hard and noisy rod ends. They are a popular mod in C5- and C6-land for guys looking to sharpen the car's reflexes.

    I'm tempted!

    I have had 2 cars with all poly bushings and track shocks/springs on the road. One had Recaro SRD's and it was ok even though the spring rate was 3 times stock. The other had Kirkey seats and it was a bit much for a daily driver. The only place I notices the harshness of the bushings was over small sharp bumps eg. bridge expansion joints, rumble strips etc.
    I would have them in a car again without question. One concern would be material chosen, some are horribly squeaky, others not at all.

    Serban, any comments on this point, based on your testing to date ? Come on now, be honest ...........

    Sounds like I am sold.

    Serban, Are these a bitch to install? Do you have to use a press? Do they squeak a lot? What kind of grease should be used?
