No, Alex is running a Buds bumper. Matt Howard is running the new wide bumper and I think he had to trim the bumper to fit under the body. Matt Howard has a set-up for a spool, and Alex is running something very close. I tried to post it here but couldn't make it work.

Have bent a couple of the Suzuki knuckles and went to the graphite knuckles instead.
Cool. And just in time because I lost one of my kingpins

pops: I also agree with you that the new Yokomo kingpins are awesome! It used to take me quite a bit of time to get the plastic washers into place and be easy with tightening the kingpin to avoid binding.

With the new kingpins, SNAP and tighten! though I think i've treaded the steering blocks because the screws keep getting lose.

Great product!!!!

I've been using the new wide front bumper for a couple weeks now. You have to trim it to make it fit under the bodies but it really protects the front end. They give you a bigger foam piece as well that also is oversized, I just stuck with the stock foam piece since I didn't feel like shaving it down.

Someone before asked about the 'Team Bomber' carbon drive shafts.

Here is a pic...



Top one is the standard kit shaft. 14g

2nd is the Yokomo Carbon shaft. 7g

Bottom is the Team Bomber shaft. 8g

The Yokomo carbon shaft as you know tends to twist. The Team Bomber shaft is thicker, better built and a lot stronger.

Was recommended by a Yokomo driver! shsshhh..

I'm running 100 spur w/35 pinion with 58mm foam tires.

Long straights but it seems to run very quick.

The upper sway bar kit from the old belt drive car will also fit on the SD
