I got part# CH12FE as spares.
My No.1 most replaced spare parts are CH1041. Good idea to have front flex plates as spare and tuning option if you got NFE. If you're still using old front end, front lower arms.
Someone else on this thread done good list of spare/tuning option few month ago. About 10 pages or so back I think.

Thanks for the answer, H I.

By the looks of it, the CH1041 might be the most vulnerable piece on the whole car, but I still haven't manage to break one during my... well, less thought through manoeuvres. Has it been a "bestseller", and how many of you guys have broken one? I'm just curious...

The crossbrace can break as it is most vulnerable to a hit being that it sticks out the furthest from the car. I personally have never broken on but i am sure that it is possible.

Just want to let you guys know that i will now be offering uptravel limiters for our new front end. One of our customers posted a pic on here of what they used and i really liked it so i tried it. And i must say, it worked very well. What it will be is long stainless steel 8-32 screws that go in the rear of the sub plates and then 8-32 plastic diff nuts are threaded onto them and used to adjust up travel. I will be selling the set for $1.99 and will have them available as an option part for the new front end if you need them. I will have the kits ready by the end of the week.

BTW, Copperheads dominated our 1st point series race here in florida yesterday. Joe Sumasky walked away from the pack with his CH12 to a convincing victory against some of the best. Cory Parson wheeled his CH10 into a hands down win against a very tight, competitive field. Not only that, he handed Mr. BMI himself his ass(that would be me ). Congrats guys. You did a great job.

After a solid year of racing this car in super stock and spec stock I finally broke the cross brace last weekend. The only other part I have replaced on this car is the motor mount. I have bent a couple in very hard head on impacts.

Well, the car should be here soon, so I'd better stock up on parts. Can't wait to hit the track , it's been about 4 months since I've raced.

I broke the cross brace only because I was testing out a new track layout and snagged a board in the middle of a chicane that was not locked down. Other than that I think the CH12 is more or less indestructible.

My LHS put in an order for BSRs from Jason last Monday and they were in for our race on Saturday. Thanks to his speedy delivery I took the 13.5 Expert event. I ran magenta fronts and pink rears, the car was planted!

That's a mighty bold statement, but I'm pretty proud of my diff prowess as well

What diff balls do you like the most?

Bold indeed In my RR w/NFE, I have ceramic balls...I like them alot. But the last two diffs I've built, I've built with the balls from IRS (the 100 pack). And they feel awesome. IMO, the balls aren't a huge factor for me....its all in how the rings are prepped and the 'break in' of them

I dunno, I've been using ceramic balls, haven't tried carbide balls yet, but absolutely can't stand the chrome steel balls. One slip or impact and the chrome starts pitting and gritting up the diff.

But for sure the rings are the most crucial, with a very specific ritual for each new set.
