Your bulkheads are in Shaq's shoes. You need to tell him he is overated and then beat him on a game of one on one. THen and only then can you have your bulkheads back.

Kevin what are you crazy ?? Dont think we can beat the pistons???


COME ON !!!!!



Kevin you have to understand nobody likes the bulls cause they play hard all game.. They play this thing called defense... I heard it was gonna be a foul next year for teams who actually play this way next season. Just goes to show that you can play defense and still score 100 points a game.

White Springs, 3 hole pistons, 35wt oil.

Most guys who ran for the first time this weekend ran the kit setup with the exception of maybe leaning over shocks a bit more and removing roll bars etc.
One guy ran 40wt Losi oil in the shocks as well (he won in Stock)

Detroit is gonna roll the bulls like they rolled the Magic. The Heat had no answer for Deng, we got Prince and as for Ben Gordon we got Chauncey and Rip. The Bulls are still a couple of years away and like the Jordan Bulls did these baby Bulls have to learn how to win from Detroit and go through them before they can have a shot at a title. It just won't happen this year!

You may want to ask him about it to be sure though, cause like you said, looking at the pics of it, it looks like it will hit the upper deck.

Also, have you tried cutting the edges off your kimbrough medium, so that it's shaped more like the original servo saver?
I shaped the Kimbrough using the highest hole possible, it's still shorter than the original though, the problem is that due to the thickiness of the saver (how far it sticks away from the servo) it will foul the top deck. If the Kimbrough was thinner it wouldn't be a problem.

Also, due to the difference in length of the Kimbrough and the original item I worried about the steering throw and angle etc. as the link from the servo will no longer be in line with where it should.

Well if the included servo saver is that bad (in which case, why even bother including it ) and other brands wont fit, then I guess we'll all just have to be like the pro guys.

Run just the servo arm and not hit anything!

Will Schumacher sponsored drivers get their cars first, than the rest of us that pre-ordered? I have seen some posts here by some people in california and other US states that claim to have received their kits and have even run them. Are they sponsored drivers, or just smarter/luckier than the rest of us who pre-ordered? If they are not sposored drivers, how did you get your kits so fast? Maybe you ordered from the UK? I want the truth!!! "You cant handle the truth..."-
