I guess we'll have to wait and see if he'll be racing for Zen and ARC, or maybe just providing support and his marketing expertise.

He's a great ambassador and amazing driver, so will be interesting to see how this all works
I have received confirmation from jones that he will be an arc driver. With tc not really being his thing. I hope he gives it a good crack.

Has anyone tested with the flex motor mount setup? How does it impact handling, corner speed ect.

it changes the feel of the car. Gives it more on power steering. Perhaps at the expense of stability.

We dont race on carpet in aus. But I would look at josh cyruls setup from late 2012. I actually tried it outdoors and it was very smooth to drive. It would have used mostly kit parts. Look for the one with the lower shock position inboard

Just saw that shopviper.com now has smaller 64p spur gears in stock. Yay! They seem to work better for some reason. I rebuilt my shocks with associated 30 and with the green springs feel like it should be good. I am still learning even shock oil (cst)! Haha! Where can you find just set ups for ARC? Is there a specific place on ARC facebook page?

On the ARC USA Facebook page look at the pictures - the set ups are in there.

You asked for the parts - we listened. New rear hubs in stock as well!!

Just wondering what the difference is with the new rear hubs (part number 109023) to the 2013 kit ones?

Thanks.

It is the same part, the new part number contains 2 pieces, instead of the original part having one side per unit.

Looking forward to giving mine a run tomorrow,
Which screws do you remove from the top brace to give more flex?
It's the pre 2013 and totally as kit,I just want to see what difference removing them all make on carpet,

I think you'll be removing the top deck screws above the layshaft (4). Keep in mind that the layshaft is not fully secured once the screws are removed...But you'll get some more flex. If you're going to run it that way you should have the flex motor mount kit, P/N is R109022.
