MIP pucks excellent upgrade! The new RCM lockout is an excellent piece as well! These options will greatly reduce weight throughout the drive line!

Ran my car on a high bite carpet track on Sat, then medium grip clay on Sun. 17.5 motor in both. I was running in stock and mod and able to run the same setup changing only tires. This car is awesome.

Hey have any of you guys tried running the Mid Motor config with no top deck and the Alum chassis? I was tempted but not sure if it will be too much flex. I know guys ran the low grip position with no top deck or side stiffeners, but that still had the rear deck.

I have an old KF Carbon chassis that i need to drill out and try.

Well, last night was not what I was hoping for. We had twice as many in class, but still landed in 6th of the A main on the grid. In the warm-up lap, yes just 1 lap, I got hit or took a weird hit and broke the aluminum rear upper camber link mount. Seems it's not machined like it appears to be, but a cast part. Oh well, no three peat this week.

This is my slipper eliminator. Just the outside plate, Jcon spur, the holes match perfect, and 15mm of a carbon arrow shaft as a spacer. 2 ASC suspension pin retaining screws complete. Hope this helps. If you're not into archery like me, see a local bow shop.

I had a very similar break on the same part. I came off a jump, landed just a bit sideways and the part broke. I notice that mine was a cast part as well.

It seems they use a form of DMLS, or 3D powder metal printing for these parts. At least that's what a friend said who is a engineering major.

I have this option in my parts box! Have never used it because Vision Racing has a carbon rear brace that has all three options on one dink! I was worried about strength due to all the holes on one piece however, for the past 3 months with some bad crashes still going strong! Well worth the $15.00 (DRC).

I just used the 2 disc method. Remove the basket, use a B5 slipper spring and clamp it. It worked ok and still gave me cushion when I landed hard on the throttle.

What are you guys using for chassis protectors? I just ordered some from the UK today but shipping and conversion rates kill me. Would love to find something in the US.

I've decided if that rotating mass is the difference between winning or not, so be it. Time to go back to mod anyway
