I got that BRP bumper in the mail yesterday along with the Trinity Front foam bumper, pretty sweet. Definately covers the Hubs in fron impact or front side impact.

Actually most of modern real cars are either shaft driven or direct drive.

'Belts are for cams and accessories.'

Sounds like a phrase TC3 team drivers could use at the race.

BRP bumper saved lots of a-arms, turnbuckles, front hub carriers, block carriers, bearings for me.

Funny I still managed to break three a-arms, a turnbucke, a front hub bearing, bunch of body posts behind protection of wide bumper.

It was pre-FM era that consoles me though.

No Buda. They don't make those long screws in aluminum (at least, AE doesn't have 'em!!!!).

I know, it sucks. You have a nice blue kit for all the screws except those 4. You could actually put 4 regular screws in there (they may not hold very well but that's ok since the wings are keyed to the chassis anyway).
