Anything over $300 is valid for the $60 off, as well as anything over I believe $150 has free shipping. No tax as well since it comes from Nevada, or Oregon I believe.

Looks like this is going to be a great car. I'd like to see a gear diff, but I think it's going to have a ball diff. Also, it would've been nice to have the arms not mounted to the bulkheads.

Its nice not to bend bulkheads but if you don't break one thing, then it will be something else...

The best reason to mount arms to the lower deck instead of the bulkhead is the car generates more grip. I can't for the life of me understand why but having owned numerous TC's done both ways there is no doubt that it works better. Even xray finally got a clue with their recent car. Chassis that mount arms to the bulkheads are often more work to go fast, however they can be every bit as fast.

I imagine that engineering in a fail point is one of the hardest things about producing a touring car. I prefer the arm to be the thing that goes since I think its the easiest to replace and not have to lose your settings. That works well until the car gets old and parts become unavailable.

How about mi4lp and top photon do you think they don't generate enough grip?

I like the mounts being on the bulkhead, especially with them being bolted from the outside now. It's cheaper/easier to change kickup/toe/rollcenter in minute amounts with this method rather than having to carry around a bunch of different arm mounts. I always hated that on my Cyclone. I'll take a $6 set of plastic mounts/shims over a $60 set of blocks any day. I've only had an issue with a bent bulkhead on my TC5 once, and that was because it lost all of it's support when one of the lower screws on the chassis backed out. Would you rather replace a bulkhead, or a complete chassis like early adopters of the Xray T3 had to?

One thing I wish they would have done however, is to move the aluminum insert from the plastic block to the bulkhead itself. That way a screw pulling out would only strip the threads in the small insert and not the bulkhead itself.
