Lookin Good!! I wonder why Lonestar changed the design of the DC4. This design looks to be a little stronger and I think it would take less time to make because of them not having to weld that whole flat plate in there. But, I liked the looks ofthe old style better, but I think these will grow on me. I will have to talk to my buddy that works at lonestar and see why they changed them. I will be flying out there next week so I will ask Scott Butler, the head of lonestar about them.

well i am not sure about that..... i think you will be just a little over 50....... merriman is running LSR/PEP w/ a 4+1 offset rim and is at 49.5...... thats also wat kory ellis is at and he has the same set-up as merriman......... so theyre cuttin it close... but theyre just there

wildtxn - those are trail tech's HID lights upper and lower. The lowers only use 12 volts, and the uppers 1.5 volts, compared to stock which use 33 volts each. I've read on this site that the charging systems either don't make enough charge, not allowing your battery to re-charge - or they make too much and burnout the battery. After checking mine on a voltmeter, I thought it was coming up short. Bottom line is that I have an obnoxious amount of light to ride with at night, more air is getting to my radiator, and i'm still on my original battery.

TG - as I understand it, the DC-4's are +2 over stock. As far as the heel plates go, that's the way AC's pro peg nerf bars came. They were a little weird at first, but I'm use to them now and don't mind them - I wouldn't go out of my way to buy them again though.

With luck, my shocks are suppose to arrive today, I'll have some more pics when the front end is put together - and with big Kudos to Trey, out of the goodness of his heart, he'll post them for me!

I would say the arms got heavier if anything. The round tube probably weighs more than the flat plate. But, my guess is that it is either a durability issue (so the new ones are stronger)or they are just easier to make.



just my opinion though

I do think it had something to do with being easier to make, and no Pro's name was mentioned, even tho Keith Little did show up at the track that day :rock

All i can say is ...Rudy at DFR racing, totally sweet prices, and better lead times. he got me my PEP ZPS shock in 6 weeks, which is way better than anything else I've seen. If you need stuff, he's the man! 480-664-9860. I didn't mean to turn this into an add, sorry.
