I just milled 2mm off of the bumper, but you are right, using a couple of 2mm spacers would work as well.

Finally broke some bits on my R1 on practice night, and it wasn't even a hard hit. I just grazed the inside wall of a turn at the apex, but there must be a seam that I caught the end of the axle on, and it broke the c-hub and steering block. The wheel ended up inside of the car. I think the axle protrusion increased when I changed to the sweep qts32 premounts. I've also started traction rolling, so increasing track width with wider hexes will hopefully help reduce traction rolling, as well as reduce the axle protrusion.
I also tried a new pf mazda6 GX body at practice night. I only used it for about 20 seconds before catching it on a crack in the boards and tearing a chunk out of it. :P

You should have seen my hissy fit I threw. The R1 is a cheater car! It was so good it should have taken first until someone took a "self inflected gunshot to the face" after leading the first 6 min of the 8 min race.

Touring cars should not cost $900. This shouldbt be a hobby that costs more than our kids first ride lol.
Ah well. As long as there are people to pay the price, there will be stuff for it.

Id live to own an expensive car. Hell I did with the serpent. For me it really wasn't any better.
