When you say short arms, are you talking about the arms from the mid motor car?

Well at least I don't drive like him so broken arms are few and far between. The catching part might be a problem though. I can't disagree with that.

Well I broke another front arm today. Thats two since I've owned the car. I'm averaging 1 arm every two race days.

Hi All,

Just found this setup on another forum, Thanks to Mr Hodge for writing it up, and Mr Spashett for posting it there
Outdoor asphalt.
T.Hodge - Rippon Raceway - Region 12 Champs

Intriguing to see use of the red foam in the shocks too

Cheers
Ed

Any thoughts on using aluminium screws to hold the battery tray in?? Not worried about the weight, only the strength. I just want to use different coloured screws - if I'm in a hurry on raceday I'll occasionally undo the wrong ones trying to change the battery
