What is the advantage of the lightened bulkheads? My car is already underweight as it is..

How can I tell the difference between the medium flex arms and the stiff ones? I have ones that say C/F on them and ones that dont. Not sure which is which.

Chirag
with VHT being used at the big dads race this weekend the CF arms should be fine. I've running the mediums cause they don't break not for extra steering

I prep and ream every arm that goes on my car. In fact, I have several arms with ball ends installed and droop screws in the arm for quick change out. Anyway, get a 1/8 inch drill bit and put it in an out hex driver, so you have a reamer and ream each arm until it spins freely on the bit. Hope this helps.

Part of that "Champ" stuff belongs to the team, you guys helped with some decisions, like when i said, i was going to change the car after the first main and you guys were, "dude, don't touch it" or something to that effect,
and don't forget when i was freaking out over the battery for the 3rd main peaking at like 2500mah and 160 degrees or something like that, you calmly said, "just repeak it" it all helped and thanks again to you and rest of the team, except adam, he just sat there all day doing nothing

You may be right but there was still only one guy driving the car. As always great job.

Ive used both the 3 mm HUDY arm reamer and a reamer I bought 4 years ago to ream stock motor bushings. Both worked great. I have found the M arms take a little more effort. But it is definitely something I do. Be sure you are checking tolerances with a perfectly straight hingepin. I keep one in my box ust to check the arms so a bent one from my car doesn't have me reaming too much. However I have found some arms perfect from the package, so check them before you ream 'em.

On a related note the Tamale stuff is the real deal. I've been running some foam 13.5 and have been realy impressed with the durability. The pieces allow you to take every last fraction of a mm of slop out of the arms without any binding. And the best part is it stays that way. When I compared my car to a fellow racers 008 his car felt like a TT-01, lol.

Just wanted to give puplic props to McGoo, Seabass, Larry et al. Between that and my discovery of the M arms, I haven't broken or bent a piece in months of racing and twice weekly all day practice.
