I was able to have Ty & Gord Tessman sigh my buggy along with Billy Fisher, Drew Moller, and Jason Snyder, all the hot bodies guys that were driving this weekend.

Cool body! I'm sure after a few more runs results will get better.

Anyone else having the arm covers starting to "pucker"? Here is a pic of mine. The covers now just go around the screws. Anyway, I have another set of arms and decided to glue them in. I won't be able to drive the car for another few more weeks, but was wondering if anyone did the same thing? The arms seems really stiff now. I hope that it doesn't lead to something else getting broken. I don't mind if the covers bend if it means that things don't break. I would sacrifice that last percentage of steering quality if it means that I finish.

What you may want to try is taking out the inner inside screw on the cover of the front arms.. It works wonders on the D812 to help from the front covers cracking and pulling up.

Ah, great suggestion. I will definitely try it. Unfortunately, I'm already committed to at least one set of glued covers. But after those go, I will try taking out the one screw.

Yup, mine do that as well, I wonder if I should just take them off and see what it is like with more flex or get the carbon ones that will likely not do that.

The carbon looks cool though so I am leaning that way

Removing the one screw from the arm covers will certainly help prevent the covers from getting bent up. I suspect that it will also impart more flex to the arms, as the one screw isn't there to do it's job. Gluing the covers sounds like the best solution to me (and Ty) as well as using all the screws.
