Well I did it. I ordered my G+ today through Ebay.. I even found out about an outdoor asphalt track near me. Maybe I'll be practicing there now. I won't get it until probably Tuesday or Wednesday. Let's see. Now I need to get the new belt setup and lookin into a spool and one ways to tinker with.

XXX-S Bill - Thanks for your message. It did help me out.

I have a feeling I'm going to be posting a lot more in this forum.

Speedtech RC has them though if PRP makes them still, those are MUCH nicer.

The stock towers will have less flex, but less adjustment. For me, those aftermarket towers just have too much adjustment..

It's only an extra 10 bucks, not like it'll buy you much anyway...

I saw that today and choked when I saw the price. I'm sure there will be better deals. And if I remember right, those offers were by relatively new members of Ebay. Maybe they have a little to learn yet.

Right now I'm looking for some good tuning options for my new car. Stuff like low roll center blocks and etc...Anyone have any that are highly recommended? Also I heard the stock bumper was a little flimsy. Since I probably need to protect the front end better as I learn about this thing, I would appreciate knowing the best route to go on it.
