probably not...
the market for team shirts is very low... racers here in the state are happy with a $5 t-shirt from Old-Navy, Walmart or Ross, Marshalls etc. etc.

Post Shock Bladders

Can someone please tell me the difference between the kit shock bladders and the firm bladders in terms of shock operation and car handling.

Thanks

Adam

Basically, quicker rebound than the stock bladders.

The kit bladders are the firm bladders. 6814 are softer. Like Franklin said the firmer the bladder the quicker the rebound. I feel that the faster the rebound increases traction but you lose a little bit of stability. I normally use the kit (firm) bladder with an added shock o-ring to the top.

Question - The new Graphite camber plate, pn# 73085. Does it include two plates, or just one? Will one 73085 out fit one car? Thanks much.

I think the kit is for 1 plate. you'll need two set.

Erik can confirm this.
