Was cool talking to Chris about the life as a sponsored driver. I know he is very happy with Reedy power right now. I have been very impressed with Chris at the track! He is a great rep for yokomo...one of the main reasons I am now running one.

Well I ran the SD today with the rear shock tower on front. It did give it more steering. But I'm not sure if the current setup I did for this shock tower is as good as my old setup. I'll have to set 2 cars up and find out this weekend. Seemed like my old setup had more steering thru the sweeper. But the front shock tower has more steering in the tighter sections. Hmmm I dunno.. maybe it's just me! haha... I'll find out Saturday if the weather holds out. 2 SD's. 2 different setups. Who will win! We will find out in 2 days..........

I would say Caster Block, Steering hub and King Pins.

Usually if you busted the Cast block the steering hub will goes alone with it and so the King pin.

But since I put a fullsize front bumper.. I have not busted any parts yet.

Axles need to be upgraded as well, heard of a lot of people breaking the stock ones.

Thats the cool thing about this thread, it is so fast moving, but if you miss a day, it takes time to catch up.
