My car ran the fastest lap times in both classes. The car carries so much corner speed . Thanks CT!
I am very impressed with the corner speed and yes your car was fast than my T4.

I think the 13.5 class will be great for that. As of now it will be 5 or 6 of the fastest guys in the class which sounds very sweet.

Good afternoon Is there anyway to get a complete set 5040 Gizmo Wishbone Insert (5pcs) for the whole car? I think it's time to rebuild my whole car from the ground up with all new parts.

They are sold in packs of 5. If you have a pre Ď20 model, you need 12pcs, so 3 packs would do the trick. With the new cars, you need 16pcs, so 4 packs would do the trick.

Plus it is always good to have extra of those. They are one of the spares i recommend having. As you use them they wear, and sometimes break from hitting stuff. They also wear from maintaining the car, popping them on and off etc.

Thank you I will be ordering enough for parts to rebuild my car. I have learned my chassis needs a complete rebuild and during this rebuild I am looking for what shock end parts to use on my car as i have the standard shocks on my chassis as mine was a beta car? Once again thank you for the help as the car is coming around more and more. The amount of corner speed is amazing. I can wait to get this chassis fully rebuilt and ready for the season.

We do not have the shock ends listed, but if you need shock ends, just shoot us an email and we can either add it to your order or process the complete order all together.

There is a list on post #400. Just 1 page back on all that is included.

For turnbuckles, you canít go wrong with Lunsford Titanium ones. You need 10 pcs of their M3x27 and 2 pcs of M3x39. Usually these are the best for indoor tracks.

I ran with the long arms last weekend, and I didn't want to form an opinion just yet.
This past weekend I ran them with 0mm under the ballstud and the super short ballstuds(.5mm lower than the short). With 0mm shims up top this was on LOW bite black carpet(we didn't need to glue tires).

This weekend I am running them again, but this time with 2mm under the arms, and 2mm up top. This will be on medium bite black carpet, i also plan on testing the short arms vs the long arms once, I find a roll center I like for the long arms.

shimming the lower long arms acts similarly to running the shorter ones it raises the roll center and makes the suspension act a bit stiffer, if you want the most grip of go with long arms and no shims... question for the guys that have been running the car for a while... have you guys tried short front arms and long rear ones at the same time?

The front arms are shorter than the rear, with the short or long arms. I am not aware or anyone who is running the short arms front and long rear.
