When the kit 1st came out I put the rear aluminum 1degree hubs on. The stock ones where a liitle off in degrees.
Other than that it was'nt for performace.
That car ROCKED!.

I will be running carpet only on foams. Not sure what degree to run but I have seen quite a few people putting the alluminum hubs on the back.

Any thoughts on alluminum steering knuckles?

If your gonna run the T2 on foams then maybe a thicker top deck or something. The P-Dub bumper is a good call also like someone else pointed out.

It currently has the BMI chassis upgrade on it. What are common parts that break on the T2? Hubs? Arms? etc..

You bet I am, that place is awesome. I will be around all day tomorrow practicing. Yeah there seems to be a lot of nice people that go to the track, hopefully my semi-noobish questions don't scare them away, haha.
