If you mean the moulded Woven Carbon Fibre tub, yeah I raced a guy who owns one in an A final at a Regional race. The car was super stiff and did really well. He's a very good driver mind, but even so - he qualified 2nd and finished 2nd. I qualified 10th and finished 5th (due largely to the luck of the Irish;o) - that made it a 1,2,5 for the SD Brigade!!

Clearly the car worked very well and certainly looked fantastic. Rather strangely, he now drives a CGM.

I think that although Fibrelyte advertise it, it's only available through this 1 guy - but the details are on the website. It's a made to order jobbie - but you may be able to find 2nd hand ones, possibly, as the CGM appears to be en vogue at present.

I was wondering how I can get the slop out of the front of my car?

The makes it hard to make adjustments on the set-up. Has anybody come cross this problem before?

slop where? You can use motor shims to take out any slop in the suspension arms or hub carriers. Some people like to use the RPM ballcups, I prefer the yokomo open ended cups used for the swaybar mounts.

Matt,
What are you using for the ball stud when you use the open ended type.. Masami and his mechanic both had them on their drift cars at the last Yokomo Cup, but i forgot to ask what they used.

Thanks

I think you just buy the sway bar ball cup packs and use the regular ballstuds.....

Really? I thought the sway bar ballstuds were smaller the the regular ones, I will give it a try though..
I know Masami used something similar to the the the sway bar ballstud.. I saw him last week too but didn't think to ask him!

Thanks

Hi Guys,

Just want to let you guys know we got a few of the new CGM blue machined motor mount in stock. I think we only have 2-3 left.

I just use regular ball studs. They fit really tight on them, I pinched the ball ends with pliers to free them up a little, they're still really snug though. No play at all, but they're still free.
