had just gotten my kit and plan to run it with 13.5 boosted. Any advice for medium traction indoor asphalt? Can't seem to find any setups posted online yet :-(

Yes it is. You still use the Standard pulley and spool cups with it.

Or any tuning options I should pick up right away to run on Carpet? Also, are most people replacing the arms with the softer version that VBC came out with? Max, I heard from other guys at 5280 raceway (CORCC) that you will be up testing in Denver before IIC? I will be racing in Denver and Fort Collins this winter, so I would love to get a chance to pick your brain when you make it up here in the next month.
Yes I should be up there the weekend before Vegas. Feel free to PM me with questions about the car or setup help.

No glue on it.
I use super fine sand paper on the edges just a quick pass to smooth the edge off.
Running on carpet so not too worried about breaking/chipping.

Has the Nats setup been posted yet?

Also does anyone know what the new "steering stiffener bar" is?

I believe it goes on top of the steering assembly poles. It can be seen in the diagram on page 7 of the manual. At least thats the speculation.

I do believe the med arms are released at CRC, the material is darker plastic....should give a bit more flex and a little bit extra traction.

Plus for anyone new to TC, softer arms make it a bit easier to drive. In my past experiences.
