The aluminums are nice, but they wear out fast. The steels are better, but they are heavier. I personally like titanium.

I have been ussing a set of robinson aluminum pinions for ove 3 years now with out problem or niticeble wear. My buddy Alex has a full set of the Xray aluminum ones and they are nice. Im sure the steel ones are longer lasting but heavier.

Default Rubberneck~racing bumpers

Here is a pix of one of the first (thicker) bumpers, note I had to notch for the bumper brace, since then I have found a thickness that will eliminate the need to notch...

This pic is of the bumper only...

Pucho, yes I did and your bumper is logged in for UPS and should go out tomorrow, so with alittle luck you'll have it B4 the weekend...Here is the mounted bumper...Forgot to mention that these bumpers are 10mm wider on each side to help protect the wheels...

PS: Nice ride Pucho!

Pucho, the setup you posted for TQ, is that for a T1R or an Evo2? Nearly all of my touring car experience has been on carpet, so i'm really clueless as to what to do for an asphalt track like TQ.

There is nowhere to put the caps.I run a Novak Tc2 so I could not mount it on the speedo itself.I mounted mine on the servo and ran a wire extention.Man,what a difference!The stock capacitor was a 4600 uf capacitor.Now its 23000 uf and is so nice for stock racing.So much more midrange punch.

wannabee: Thanks Im looking forward to it. Thanks on the compliments.


Accord: Yes it's for the T1R but Alex runs a similar set up on the EVO2 at Corral Springs


racenut123: I personally run a 4700uf cap and it seams like it's good enoth I don't know where I could fit a larger one. But you know what they say bigger is beter!

Thanks, so basically a good setup at the coral springs track is also a good setup at TQ?

Yes, because the first time I ran the car was at corral springs, them at MDI and then at TQ. I needed a lot of work at MDI but we only went there because we got rained out.

pucho: Wait 'till you get the Rubberneck bumper, you won't believe how much better it protects the front-end.
