Although it would be pretty cool if there was a protective cover, like the Baracuda's.

Thanks for the info Eirik .... Im assuming the car in the pic is yours .. .. if so well done on your win!!

Did you drill holes in the top of them? Also I see you stop sideways movement of the anti-roll bar with collets? Which ones do you use and do you have a part number?

Cheers
Scott

Ewwww, I'd prefer a less boxy cover.

Acutts,

Yes, you are right, the car is mine....

I used a reamer to make the holes in the ballcups, makes it allot easier to change the rollcenters!

The collars are made made by a company called Q-World, you could also check out Ofna as this is the same parts. Not sure about the partnumbers though.

Later,
Eirik

Default Open Gearbox

Id like the open gearbox or even just an alloy version of the stock gearboxes, it seems that alot of Pro4 tweak comes from the graphite ones.
The price for these will be high though

The mould on one of my gearboxes isn't too good, and the upper bulkhead doesn't sit on the lower bulkhead properly, I'm sure other peoples are like this, and alloy bulkheads would definately be more precise. If the bulkheads are open then that may save some weight and possibly be not much different to the stock gearboxes, plus most of the weight would be lower down.

I would not mind seing a version like the CUDA, sort of like the prototype cars. I would just like the fact that everithing would rin truer but the stock ones due a great job.

Default Springs.

I know my answer is somewhere in this post, but do the TC3 springs fit on the Pro 4? The Pro 4 doesn't seem to have a very good selection of springs.

yes they fit... and all the springs for the Pro4 are readily available and is very comparable to the spring weights of the TC3.

Yes, but there are only 7 different spring rates with the Pro 4 and they are pretty close together. The TC3 springs are spaced further apart and there are 9 different springs.

Do they fit exactly like the Pro 4 springs, or are they sized a little different?

the Pro4 springs are spaced closer together for more of precise setting. most likely you'll never use the lighter springs.

I forget what size the TC3 springs are...it's been a very long time since I've owned a TC3.... I think it's smaller than the Pro4 springs.

Have you used the TC3 springs on your car or have you just heard that they will work?
