Plastic to ploy

Recommended Posts

I have re designed the rear of my Spit to Rotflex+ (GT6 MkIII) but I find that the lower plastic bushes (Rimmer number 148926) are not up for the job. Is it possible to get hold of in poly?

Anyone?

I do have these superflex bushes in the GT6 and Vitesse. GT6 done 4500 km and no problems (they where red some time ago).

If you can get the proper quality original ones, they are fine.  The ones in my Vitesse are at least 30 years old and I re-used the ones in my GT6 as they were fine too - no idea how old they are.

However, compared to the commonly available "Christmas cracker quality" won't-quite-fit parts more commonly available the Superflex products linked seem to be a good alternative - if expensive.

I used superflex in my build. I was concerned that they are soft compared with the nylon originals. But as I do not have the same level of "feel" that some drivers have for car setup it has not been an issue. Besides, they are pretty thin so movement will be limited.
