That piece mounts under the steering plate, in the bulkhead right behind the tower. There should be an identical plastic piece there after you remove the stock Carbon plate.

Absolutely, as long as you got the Anti-Locks. You need to set them like this:

I 0 II------
I 0 II------
I 0 II------

The "I" is one pad, the "0" is the disc, and the "II" is two pads all mounted up to the bulkhead.

Hope you understood that!

Some pics of my Jammin X1CR / FTE Hybrid ready for the 06 season finally. All I need to make it a complete FTE are the shock towers. These Big Bore shocks are REALLy nice!

I guess the Anti-Locks are more of a preference. I tried the regular discs, and they felt fine- just a little grabby. The A-L's are perfect, and you always finish the race with the same brakes you started with.

I ran the stock Factory team brakes in a 45 minute main this weekend and they worked perfect, I could see no reason to run anything else.

I'd like to know if anyone knows what the amount of anti-squat is that come with the factory team buggy. I can't find anything that tells how much, Just from looking at it I'd say its at least 2-3 degrees. Anyone know how much??

I believe the stock FT anti-squat is 3 degrees. I can almost guarantee that you'll end up running the 1 degree plate though.
