I still gotta get some hard material arms... They could swap out a lot of the aluminum pieces to save weight, I wouldn't mind the graphite material in their place

Some of us still have only one cuda and thats close to stock I think RBF knows what I mean

Hmm hard shaft holders, or even bulkheads..... nah, I like my shiney bits too much
I think RBF has more cash put into tuning parts than any of us have spent on our R2 collections

randman i don't believe this is true at all RBF has been running the car stock with the exception of the alum shaft holders for a LONG time. Only recently has he put TI rods on it, and thats it. RBF has been wooping us with a nearly stock R2
