Do you have a web site? I'm a little new, so I do not know this name, GPM...

Anyone had the setup sheet from the 2006 Reedy race for a TC4?

Anybody ever put an alloy differential housing on their tc4? I was thinking about it today. Might be a bit more sturdy for the shock towers. My car is a little light right now so I wouldn't mind the weight.

A 1 piece shaft from front to rear??? Any chassis flex at all will cause a major bind. Not a good idea IMO. Looks cool, but where is the "extra competitiveness" going to come from?

I really like the look of it except for one thing - All the weight at the back is on the left and at the front on the right. Surely you want to aim to get the weight more even left to right on each end of the car?

Well If you had a problem why did you not email us? we always make things right! You have to admit the carbon looked great, you must have gotten a rotten top deck and should have emailed us?

The XLR8 will never be able to flex enough to bend the solid drive shaft, we have been testing the car for about 2 years, allot of weighing and designing went into this car, the weight is better balanced left to right more than any shaft car you will find on the market.. We needed to add weight so we added it to the arms, and they are very strong, you will just blast the upright off before the arms even move, rarely (maybe one time during all the testing) did we even have a hinge pin bend You will see this season when it wins some big races, itll make you think again about belt cars

Even had I not had a bad experience with your products I would still think this conversion looks useless, particularly the aluminum arms.




I find that hard to believe...in an impact something has to give. Aluminum arms will bend, cf will de-laminate, bulkheads will bend. You can tell me till you're blue in the face that it won't but it won't help.

You aint got to lie to kick it bro , we answer all of our emails and we never got a reply email from you complaining about your top plate?, which email address would the email have been from? we also never delete our emails so if you did I can pull it back up?, seems to me that you would have posted that in your last post when you said we sold you a top plate that the holes were drilled off? Knock us if you want, we have tons of satisfied customers and we always make things good!! You really must have had a bad time with that top plate?

As far as the XLR8, testing is what its all about and we tested different arm materials and pin block materials for 2 years. The arms are from 7075 aluminum and they are way too hard to bend, you will FO sho blow an upright off before anything else happens.! You must be talking about driving your car straight into a wall or something, are you gonna be racing or bashing with your ride?? Holy crap dog bending bulkheads?? come on now

Let me know that email address and I look it up???

thanks, Damon
