Finally done and almost ready to fire up that engine. All that is left is to do the body... Cannot wait to get this bad boy done and finally drive it!

Here is the new arms from John from J&S Racing that worked great, no problems at all. I had them on everyday after the first day of practice. There were about 6 Mugen drivers that ended up putting them on later in the week and using them.

Last "Official" word from U.S. and Japan is no. I think we will see the clutch given a part number. The rest of the stuff the jury is still deliberating= need more R&D time.

I have not run the car with out them so I can not answer what they do. I have asked everyone else that we race with that runs them if they have done any testing with them on and off the car. Same answer, once there on the car they stay on the car.
cause they LOOK BITCHIN'

Hey Tommy

The wheel disk prevent air resistance through the wheels that create a negative affect at speed, Just like dished wheels, Straight line turbulence is reduced and cornering speed is very linear

would that equate to a "push" in the cornering dept?

No push, Nice rotation because there is no reverse flow of air against the spokes on the wheels.
