The torque arm was one of my first mods.Yes, I'm a big believer in that admittedly heavy appliance. I'm going faster than I did on the very optimized upper control arm setup I had, and I've been more consistent with the car and I've eliminated a tendancy to spin in certain corners that would cost me races (I lost great positioning in about 7 races as the car was too touchy on throttle in corner exit). The Torque arm doesn't seem to have any disadvantage compared to the UCA setup (and I believe it was a compliance issue with rod end to rod end not jiving with the tires on throttle). It's resulted in a much easier car to drive at the limit, and you can save the car more easily if you tiptoe past the limit.
That blower motor I had on the 275 Hankooks I started with was just ridiculous.
The T/A helped quite a bit with that.
