Look at the 5th post down on the previous page. Someone is setting up a buy to have an Al cup made.

I am trying to amass an order for a machinist to custom mill this input fitting for us. So far I believe there are four of us. We would need a total of 10. Please send me a PM if you are interested. This fitting was made by Exotek and now long discontinued.

Ah well will probably get a stock one for now.

Does anyone have a good base drift setup?

I had a similar idea and was wondering if it would work. Thanks for the tip!

Since you have two cars each with the different front shock setup, how is the handling different? I've had my CR built with the front laydown shocks and I have been thinking of going to the stand up position. I think it might be better for drifting. I've read the laydown position can make the handling a little lazy.

Hi ok I just put the upright shocks on to try it. Took it out today it's more stable at high speed. I will be taking it out on Sunday to the track let you know how it goes. But as for drifting I am not sure I do not drift. For the lay down
shocks I race with. I went with 30wt shock oil with gold sprigs it help alot.
I hope it helps you.
