Schumacher does not make them, they are an importer of the CS tires.

Looks good Jared. If you the chance put some button head screws and washers on the top shock mounts to make sure they never pop off.

in a earlier post i was having trouble with with the car wanting to come around on me in high speed turns. so i made a rear sway bar change from the .060 to a .040 and that helped on that problem.
i was at a different track and the car was pushing on power a lot. does anyone have any suggestions on what to change?
i don't have the 1mm shim under the ball stud on the spindle.

Is the push on or off power? Makes all the difference.

What you might want to try is a 41 tooth spool pulley instead of the 42. The overdrive really creates a lot of on-power steering. You'll like it. In fact, that's all we really ran this past summer.
