Upgraded Toe Links
Posted 10 June 2013 - 01:09 PM
Looking at eliseparts / elise shop they're the best part of £300 and I was wondering what everyones thoughts are on these before I go and spend the money on them.

I'm not sure if they're something I need to buy or not. Just because we might hear of the odd track day junkie breaking one I was wondering if I really need to upgrade mine for just a couple of track days a year or is getting them regularly checked sufficient enough.
If i'm going to run the risk of heading backwards into armco like some posts on other sites might suggest then they'll be worth every penny.

Having said that maybe I was just lucky. If I made those mods now I would want the upgraded links to feel safe. 3 or 4 hundred quid isn't that much relatively if you are shelling out for nitrons and tyres all round. I have seen a toe link come adrift on an elise at a track day once. The damage didn't look too bad but even if you don't crash it can't be good for the rest of the suspension, drive shaft, gearbox etc

Eliseshop sell a kit for about £250 inc. vat and eliseparts have what looks like the same kit for £290 inc vat, so i'll probably go with the elise shop one.

I decided to go for elise shop motorsport NMB rod ends (Linky) - not fitted them yet but NMB are known to be the best rodends. Yvo used to sell the spitfire ones, but now does his own.
Before you decide on your rodends, do a bit of googling etc.
Incidently, I think they changed the S2 toelink ends end of 2003 Linky see items 34/35, they seem to have stayed similar from that point on though.
S1 are different - and had a problem S1 Linky or S1 Motorsport
My MY04 toelinks have been fine after 3 trackdays- but I'm still changing them as I have a honda, so a bit more oomph.
