You can likely run 2 Pulsar 2's charging at 5 Amps on the N-power
thing is, a charger charging at 5 amp won't actually draw 5 amp from the PSU....you could run 2 6 amp chargers on a 10 amp PSU and it would be fine.

i've run 2 chargers charging at 2 amp, novak smart tray, a beefy 12v soldering iron off my 20amp PSU, then a mate hooked upto it charging at 5amp and did anything happen? nope, not a thing...just got a bit warmer than it usually does.

Doug,
I just picked up an Integy tire truer and while I have only cut 2 sets of foams with it, it works just fine and it was fairly inexpensive. Might want to look at it!

Finally got to run my TC4 and have to admit the car ran great! Especially after the first heat and I swapped out the rubber for the foams It was practically dialed a few more tweaks and I will be good to go. Ran my fastest lap to date and gained time on my lap avg. Love the one way just need a bit more practice getting used to it! Awsome car!

I guess it really just boils down to track and set-up on whether it's foams or rubber. I still use rubber on my Barracuda and T-Spec so it's probably just the set-up!

No not the auto one try this link: http://integy.automated-shops.com/cg...56105282091.e3 It's Manual but works well. You can find them cheaper as well.

As far as foams I have been using the Jato Nitro shoes 26MM 40 Shore front 30MM 35 shore rear or Think it's trinity or TRC F3 Shore front R3 Rear. Hooks up pretty good on our large asphalt track. As it gets hotter will probably go up in shore rating for better wear. Gene

Ya, I wanted to know the same thing about the PDub bumper, Gene465 I've never seen that truer before looks pretty sweet, and is a resonable price!

Default I bought a set of graphite arms....

and they must have been the old ones. I wasted $25 dollars and they are sloppy. Sure wish there was a way to tell the difference between the improved ones and the old ones.

Any news on when AE going to release the FT version?

I thought there was no problems with the graphite arms, the problem was with the original composite ones, which were changed to a mold which looked identical to the graphite/carbon arms.

To tell the difference in the arms, I've noticed that the holes where the lower portion of the shocks go in are differerent.

I'm just about done putting all the Carbon parts on my car. I noticed that the front arms have slop but the rear are just about perfect. The reason? I think it's because I have the (X) Aluminum mount on.
