What material are the CVDs made of? I know the copper color is spring steel but not sure of the grey parts. Also what is the silver part of the spool made out of? And the lay shaft?

I am sending it off for anodising and just trying to work what to send and what not to send

I follow the setup which provide by Schumacher website
http://www.racing-cars.com/images/Te...eet_tarmac.pdf

the difference between my current setup is I am using 2 piston holds, 1 degree Alloy Rear Hub Carriers and 6.5mm/front;7mm/rear ride height

I am running 11.5t BL/2s Lipo/Sorex 40R/Soft insert

Do you think, if I change medium flex wishbones will help?
