F.V.S.S. Collari was cutting a grove in his wheels on the truer. Robert was snaping them in. Either way there is some hand finishing...

He made those for himself. There are no disc for Contact wheels. You would have to make them yourself. He cut a small groove in the rim and then fit an oversized disc out of graphite or plastic and snapped them in.

Default Rear Body Mount

Have any of you experienced the sliding part of rear body mount popping out under a slight impact ?

This happens to me everytime the car slides into something tail first.

I do tend to hit a lot of stuff, but never hard enough to actually break anything (not yet anyway!).

I thought I read somewhere there was a fix for this, but I can't remember where.

Thanks,
Steve

But the new plastic one, once the bracket lose one time, it will lose always. Or, buy a metal bracket.

or use thinner shims on the plastic that fixes the
upper body mount into the vertical position

or expert solution: dremel the inner plastik and use a longer screw with a stop-nut on the other side so that it cant move out but still run smoth.
