Yes they r the ones that I'm after but I wasn't sure which ones the 20 mm ones were,but with the help from trigger ( thanks trigger ) I have now worked how the part numbers/description works & all of the parts that I require are available locally from the aus distributor with good pricing as well. So all is good

I guess everyone is happy playing with their great cars.

I have only been doing some Friday night social racing of late, but the car has been flawless, with quite a Few people looking to make the change to ARC.

It's great driving a car you can be proud of

Lol! Seems like it. I know I have been eager to race but with the rains coming it seems on race days and my wife wanting to go out of town. Ive been feeling deprived. Sponsored by a new motor company R1 Wurks. If I were you guys I would give them a try. Oh but that is stock classes only for now. These motors are going to be the game changer.

after a brief layoff I was back at it last Saturday, the changes I made since the the last outing was the floating motor mount, don't know if it was the layoff or the car but I/it was a bit weird to drive, not very consistent lap to lap. I'm going to blame it me and rust build it I had. the first round the car was a bit tippy but fast, second round I rolled a few times as a result of contact with corner dots. ended up qualifying 3rd.

swapped the car over to VTA trim to give that a go.

I don't know if you did this or not but I rebuild my shocks before every race day. Read it in a post somewhere by a world pro driver a year ago and I have been doing it ever since. Even on my VTA. It helps make the car more consistent. But the pro guy said he did it every round. Im not that anal. lol

Did your tires have the "nw spec" sticker on them?

Oh, so who's the local seller (pardon me, as things change quickly when you're out of it for a while)
