(I'm going to get clobbered for that comment, I know it. )

good point, for winter racing I race an ultra high bite indoor clay track where my car doesn't even get dirty.

I spent the last two days after work getting it broke in. So it's on tomorrow at Revelation. Once that thing started loosening up and getting broke in well, I really started to get excited. I know the stock V-Specs are insane. This is an EB Modified. I'm not sure I'll be able to use it all.

Yup. I can't wait to break in my new C6BB. Though not sure if I should run that or my 5 gallon WS7III. The engine isn't holding me back, but my driving sure is! Im think Ill wait till my WS7III blows up....gosh it'll be awhile, gotta love RB!

WAAAAAYYYY over priced. Get the King Headz. Better design, no plastic on it, and half the price.
I was looking at the Fioroni first, the little plastic inserts in them are $26. How can they justify that?

I like the Eck-Tech version. You get both the inner and outer peices. The Inner rear adjust the Anti-Squat and the Outer plate adjust the toe. They hold up very well and are pretty cost effective for what you get.
