Speaking of waterfalls my buddy and I were running last night and the layout has been in for awhile at my local track and it was pretty dry and loose last night and my buddy was running my old car which I had cut a slit in the waterfall and he was running mod and said he had tons of grip and I was running stock without the slit cut in my waterfall and I was loose as a goose.

We both had basically the same setup and were running the same tires so the only thing it could have been was the slit in the waterfall. Just thought I would let you guys know who are looking for that extra bit of rear grip.

Thanks for the feedback. I just ordered the one from MO Performance Parts because I liked the way it looked a bit more. Guess we will see how it goes. Says shipping in 2 weeks, lol...

I almost always run the cut waterfall. Except on carpet because last thing I need is more rear bite.

also, the 3d printed waterfalls have more flex.

most of it. I'm starting to wonder if there were a few chassis that were off kilter when drilling those holes out as the left side has consistently had more slop than the right on everyone who has had slop...from the get go.

Looking to shim some suspension parts on my B5M...to remove a little slop. Anyone know where to get 3.5mm ID shims? I found 3mm and 4mm ID, but no 3.5mm.

Thank you
