Dude that is freakin awesome! I cant believe how you guys worked all that out. I'm really keen to build a swb M04 myself now even though I think it might be a little hard to drive!

Thanks for an amazing article.

Well I'd like some RP 36's or something similar for hot temps. Most things I saw at speedtech were showing out of stock.

When I e-mailed my order their website showed them as in-stock. An e-mail response of any sort would have been nice to at least let me know they recieved my e-mail, even better if they told me they were out of stock.

As whats been said before, Greg will respond to your email.

Feral Batteries is a one man operation and atm he is madly matching cells that only just arrived in readiness for this weekends Much More Masters.

Greg gets hundreds on emails everyday, I normally phone him but seeing your in Hawaii that might be difficult.

I always find his service great.

Cheers

Sick to death of not being able to get Mini tyres? Or even worse, only being able to get pathetic Type A 60D's that last 4 races and then get the dreaded 'death groove'?

Your prayers have been answered finally

Go here to read all about the newest Mini tyres on the market.
And best of all, you'll be able to buy them in just a few days time!

Nice! If that's the same Powers that I'm familiar with, they used to make foam tires & they made some aluminum parts for the FF01 years ago... I had some of their upper control arms.

The new slicks sound awesome. Will they be available unmounted as well?
