Same here i took off the rubber sleeve off that goes around the wire. But I took it out of the car. It seemed like it didn't turn as good.

Probably won't see parts pipeline open up for several more weeks. I think most of us have a few parts we want in our box.

Default Aluminum upper shaft swap

Swapped out my upper shaft tonight.

The aluminum one weighs 5g, the one in the kit weighs 13g.

That's good savings, when MIP hits with pucks, should be able to get car down to 1500 weight for stock.

I run on high bite and I have the reedy square, saddles, and a shorty and so far my car feels the best with a shorty. I NEED MORE STEERING.... I have tried a few things to get more but nothing seems to add the amount im looking for. I love a car that is a little twitchy, just my driving style. Any help is greatly appreciated
