Im not going to agree with that, as I have bent a hinge pin and a screw while using plastic blocks, and up to now not broke any blocks. whereas with the alloy blocks ive bent a pin, screw and knackered up the hole in the block!

And the plastic ones look better!

3 for 3 after this last race day. This time TQ w/ 1 lap over 2nd. Although didn't lap 2nd in the main as I think the rear tires started going away, Sweep 36's in rear had about 20 runs on them and the Sweep 40's in front had maybe 5 runs but the car was still easy to drive.

Anyone have any insider information when the short arms will be available again. My stuff has been on backorder at Stormer for 2 weeks now..... Its OOS at the Schumie site as well

I can't run this thing till I get that order...as I need the spurs as well.

Hey guys here is what i have for a rubber setup right now, very neutral and forgiving, will likely be a good base for most carpet tracks....i should have a foam setup soon, i hope to have my first outing on foam of the season this weekend.
