Default Re-call of top suspension arms on EXi's

To all EXi owners

It has come to our attention that a 2nd EXi top rear suspension arm has failed. It is then prudent for me to request that all suspension arms are either retuned to me for inspection and replacement (if deemed necessary) or that very clear and distinct photographs be sent so that I may satisfy myself that no general design/fabrication problem exists.

To clarify: Through the period of production there have been some minor variations in assembly. These differences in assembly have not apparently been a problem except in these two specific circumstances and I can not be sure that this has not come about because the builders chose to substitute Marlin parts when constructing their EXiís and that these other parts may have had a degree of responsibility for the parts failure.

I would also like to mention that the EXi suspension & hub components are in their 3rd and 4th generation of development and improvement. The suspension package that is now fitted and sold in the standard EXi kit has been independently confirmed to be better than (and a lot more cost effective) than those supplied by some suspension design companies.
The standard of workmanship fabrication and welding is also of the highest standard.

Do bear in mind that the EXi has proven to be capable of better than 1.10ís at Castle Combe and that all newly race designed suspension components are retro-fitable even to the earliest T5 chassis and very competitively priced.

As with all work of this type you will be expected to cover all reasonable wear & tear and carriage costs before parts will be returned to you.

Enthusiastic Regards
