Congrats to Larry, Oleg and FJ on the wins at the Snowbirds. Larry's car was uber dialed on Sunday for sure! There were deff some people taking note and checking the cars out while there! I think Oleg is going to ramp up production soon!

It will be nice to get Josh Cyrul's opinions and thoughts on the car after his first major race debut .

You mean you don't know what a xyz123 part is. That is shocking

We can see what other items can be added..

Mike I was looking for parts that you hadn't had or have enough of. Plus with you guys being closed for birds I figured I would give the main site a try as it showed everything I wanted.

Is there a downloadable copy of the FFG directions listed someplace?

The part number thing on this thread is so confusing, but I am learning it. It was interesting to see parts have names on the Awesomatix site. I have people tell me how confused they get by reading this thread, I am starting to think it's funny. I just use the owners manual like a read along guide.

This has been a running joke at our track ever since the 1st one showed up.

That set aside we now have 6 people with a total of 9 kits (soon to be 10) running at our track with a few more thinking about it. Was zero 6 months ago.

As far as part numbers go...I have been running this car since December 2012 and still don't know many of them. So I have given them names.

P05=swaybar link
P12=Swaybar mount
P04=Arm Bulkhead
P02=Bottom Scissor link
P01=Top Scissor link
St17=Metal driveshaft ring

That is just some for future reference, and for what its worth I had to google every single one of those part numbers to see what they were.

I think the problem is that the part numbers are almost comprehensible enough to remember reliably, so people use them. Unlike other brands where it's a random string of numbers so you almost never hear them called by their actual SKU.

Hi guys.
I would like some opinions, I am about to race on a very bumpy track this weekend. Would the asymetrical setup on the shocks be useful to help with the rebound stroke? I have not tried it in this configuration before. From experience do you need to change spring/damper rates to get the same feel of the car in a symmetrical mode?
Cheers
Simon
