Thanks guys.

I did run the carbon towers. I have never ran anything beside the carbon towers. If you treat the towers they are as strong if not stronger than the metal ones. (I posted about 3 months ago how to treat them with tire glue)

I will post my setup in the next few days for everyone that wants to try it out. I pretty much run this setup everywhere with just a few minor tweaks here and there and it works great on all tracks.

I agree the 09 kit comes with everything you need. The car in the video is bone stock 09 kit. Absolutely no hop ups from any other manufacturer except for tires. Not many companies can say that.

Shannon, I didn't mean to call you Shane.

While building a 09 Kit last night I noticed that the aluminum rear hub-carriers are in there too. Wow!

Brian- during qualifying I was running calibers, switched to revolvers in the main

Garret- Congrats on TQ, if you hadn't of flamed it would have been hard to beat you.

RoyJ-- You are correct the 09 kit comes with the rear alum hubs, however I use the stock plastic ones just for lighter weight.

Here is part of my setup from the weekend:

Diffs 5-5-1
Shocks F 50, R 40 Stock 1.4 pistons
Blue springs up front, stock in rear
no droop on front arms, rear the set screws are about 10 mill. out of the arm
Long wheelbase
3-3 rear pivot
Plastic chassis braces
3 degrees positive toe out in F
-2 Camber all around
13 tooth clutch bell, stock shoes and springs
Largest sway bars all around


Will get tie rod locations and etc. soon.
