I'm just going with what the local fast guys are running and most of the UK guys are on the ali hub but I suppose its down to personal preference

In answer to the post above not all the "fast" UK carpet boys use the alloy hubs .... check out the Hall's cars and Richard Barton for a start.

I'm hoping to get down to your club over the winter, would be nice to drive the car if you'd not mind?

The bling and cool factor of all these freshly machine gearboxes and chassis is off the chart!

My team mate Andreas gave me the idea to mount the rear roll bar, B6 part with a stock B6 roll bar and 2 x 25mm cs bolts

nice work.

Saw a post asking for yokomo interest, could be there for sure especially if rear swaybar setup and quick access diffs are taken into account for the design. looking forward to hearing more on this.

So after a chat with some of the team who have the prototype cars Iíve gone with the B6 and gull wing hard arms on my car
They say the B6/6.1 rear arms give the car some more steering
Iím racing tomorrow indoors on Astro so see how it goes!
