it was alot faster with a dremel and small sanding drum... after that used a file to make it flat.
right now it's only .75" long sloping channel... might re-do it and make it a little longer to around 1".
instead of CA... I may mask out the rest of the chassis and spray on some Clear Laquer paint. it will give it more professional look..
CA won't dry flat.

if you try it... mask out the area you want to cut with some masking tape as guide.

no air scoop... not yet..
have a fan instead.
yup getting some '05 spec parts...should be arriving this week:
new 2.25 upperdeck

1piece front bevel gear/input shaft

new threaded shocks.
once installed by car should be 99% US spec pro4.
unfortunately they do not have the new longer diff t-nut or motor mount.

the slope area still very strong. laquer or CA. to me about the same...both will penetrate the CF for a stronger bond.
most weaved CF parts are sprayed with laquere to give it's shiney finish.

Haven't seen the new one..yet to arrive...but from what I've seen it's similar to the Yok shocks...the bottom of the shock has a screw on cap. making it easier to replace o-rings instead of using those wire retainer clips. also it's florine coated, has new flat type bladder, and machined pistons.

Has anyone here raced with the metal input shafts yet? if so, are u using the metal dif gear or stock plastic. I was wondering if the metal on metal gears cause any interfearence.

when I get mine I'll let you know... and I'll be using the V1.1 plastic diff gear... for now I don't see any interfearence problems problem with matal on metal gears... more friction and heat buildup is the only problem I see...

Either: Double Pink Rear and Double Pink/Orange (Cyan) Front
or: Purple Rear and Purple/Orange (Plaid) Front

Personally I like TRC's much more than the JACO's. JACO's are a bit grippier but chunk a LOT easier.
