I bought the stiff chasis and the top deck but I'm running Foams on carpet, and that is what the stiff chasis is for!

yes...just a drill... start with a small bit and work it up from there until it's big enough for the screw head... by doing this you lessen you chances of delaminating the CF. then CA the hole.

Cool

First I know about the DHI CUP setup for rubber tires on carpet but has anyone tried or is running rubber tires on carpet? I would like some setup information with rubber tires on carpet I am using CS27 tires but I think I have to much traction still and my car doesn't flow through the corners.

countesunk washers. they let you use a flathead screw. basically an aesthetic washer system. instead of an ugly buttonhead or caphead screw with a washer underneath it you get s cool looking integrated washer look, with contrast.

just sexy washers

washers are important when you do the upperdeck mod discussed above. provide more hold down power for the upper deck since you loose that whne you drill the upper deck.
