Any news on the new B6 motor plate with integrated spur guard?
Hoping late next month.

Sounds good. What are characteristics of the Octagons that feel different than the smoothies?

Also, if you guys have any carpet tips for them as there are those of us who are not allowed to run carpet pin tires, that would help (ex- use the green compound over gold "clay" one, sauce X amount, use this foam, etc)
I personally don't have any experience with them yet.

Nothing more than body, wings, and turnbuckles at the moment. They had to many new items on their team cars at the Reedy Race, so we want to wait and see where they are going with that platform.

I'm looking for suggestions as to what traction compound to try with clay smoothies on clay with dirt glue. I'm having a hard time getting them to hook up. AKA slicks with Protek light works extremely well. The tracks surface feels a lot like a basketball court, your shoes will screech if you drag them. Just looking for a list of sauces to try to see if there is anything I've missed.

I've done a lot of running on glued surfaces and by far the best sauce for Gold Smoothies is SXT 3.0. When starting with a brand new set, sauce for 15mins and then resauce like 3-5mins before you run. I normally only sauce 1/2 or 3/4 front tire. If you are running mod and need less/smoother steering, try a 4wd front smoothie on a 2wd front wheel. You can normally sauce less time as the tires get older/softer.

Not at the moment; we are waiting to see if they release a kit with a molded/production style transmission. The current LD tranny they offer is really tall and wouldn't allow room for the F2 styling in the back .
