the rear hangers are really the only fragile part of the car. that being said i would also carry hinge pins (rear). and we tend to loose the front pivot brace (aluminum) so maybe a couple of those in the pit bag is a good idea.. LIke i posted earlier i have found a way to better attach this brace and am in the final stges before i start a small production batch for all my red army buds

Cool thanks for the suggestions. I should be picking up my car on Sunday so I'll take an inventory on spares and then order accordingly.

I thought of one more question. Do you guys typically run shorty packs in all situations when running rear motor? I come from the school of thought where shorty = high bite / full size = low bite. I'm guessing the same will hold true here?

Yeah I still haven't been up to the new building. I need to make it up there one of these days. It just costs me a ton to race there. Bridges / tolls / gas and I'm up to 60-70 bucks before even walking in the door That and it's 3 plus hours away LOL

I have not seen any offered. At least the plastic ones are beefed up.

more so than the Rm hangers? I was told that if you use the delrin bushings in the plastic holder, that they hold up very well. So I ordered some to try out.
