No secrets. It's just the Alloy rear hub carriers.

JON KERR: would you know if we would be able to use the new Teemu Riser plates on the BMI chassis?

You're talking about the risers for the bulkheads, correct? I Don't see why you couldn't use them.

Thanks, I think I'll need it

The length is the only thing I'd be concerned about. Just make sure you use a ball stud or something on the bottom shock mount to make sure you can get the right length.

Is there any benefit added by running the alloy rear hubs?

It's a tuning option. I felt it the geometry gave the car more cornerspeed. The stock hubs kind of felt like the rear end was too planted last time I ran them. I changed back to the alloy hubs and it seemed to free up the car quite a bit.

you also get to play with rear toe end using the alloy hubs. The stock hubs only allow 1.5 or 3.

Jon- That's also a killer motor you have mounted in your car. I plan on running the brand motor this weekend....

When I paint a stack like that it makes me not want to paint anything for a few months. Thats 6 colors per body about 16 hours of work. One hour each to hand draw the design outside/masking tape the inside/cut the masks then one hour each to shadow/peel masking/silver/peel masking/chrome/peel masking/orange/peel masking/yellow/peel masking/white.

I feel you. I just started shooting paint (airbrushing) and its already been a week that i'm still working on the same body. Thats what happens when you want to be all fancy so dont get too depressed.

Yup...he has a 6. Thats what he plans on running in Rubber Mod. The new G6 is whats up first in Foam Mod. PW is a hardcore Protoform guy so he hopes the G6 is good but there is a Parma Alfa in the stack too just in case.

Good luck to all the Schu faithful on your pilgrimage to Vegas! PW leaves tomorrow morning.
