That does make sense....I'm still in decision mode.

Ivan - if it helps - I only know of one place that still have a black kit available, they have been sold out by most dealers.

ATS kits are in stock most places that carry ARC, if they not, they can get them from us as needed.

Frank does have a point about the black edition - there are limited replacement parts in black, it was done only as a special edition.

Does anyone local to Southern California want a Capricorn Carbon Upper front bumper (for their ARC R10)? Capricorn USA has been out for months and hasn't answered their phones or returned emails... SO... I am going to order from Capricorn Italy, but shipping is high, so I'd like to get a few bumpers to even it out.

Cost is $22 ea, and I can ship one to anybody in the US for an even $30.

Let me know by 01/05 so I can place the order.

Found some issues with my car. I had shimmed behind the hex pins to take up some of the slack and found that they were a bit tight and causing a lot of drag. Also, if you race carpet clean your belts. I have the low fric belts and they are supposed to be a redish brown and mine was black from rubber dibris. Cleaned a few other bearings and noticed the rear diff housing had some extra flashing i did not notice on the white plastic so i took care of that since it was making the bearing wobble pretty bad. Car now has no vibes and rolls smooth as silk like brand new.

If you run spacers between the bearings in the spindles and hubs (1.9mm worth), then you can shim you axle spaced tight without causing any drag.

Has anyone tried the blitz tsx body on carpet? If so how did you like it. I like steering and was thinking about getting one.
