No problem IslandBwoy.

The Mi2 has been out for less than a year and There are no plans for a new car any time soon. There are new parts coming out all the time but no new car.

Nothing is really manditory. The most useful hopups are the gear adapter, the lowered shock towers and Ti or steel cvd's.

not long if you've got a spool in the front. I've got a set of steel ones if you need them for the front. The rears should be OK for a while.

The rears will last quite a while but the fronts will be gone faster than an airline bottle of vodka at and AA meeting with that 8 turn.

What no 7...LOL I just changed my rear plastic cvd's after having the car since it first came out. They hold up in the rear but I like the steel cvd's in the front.

Hey PW or Adrian, I have been going thru C-Hubs with scary regularity. Are the 4 deg and 6 deg aluminum ones available? Also with the Teemu chassis, does it come with a thicker upper deck as well?

Good analogy Mo

I planned on getting the steel ones anyway, but now I guess there's no other choice

Gary, you can get Alloy 4 deg caster blocks, but don't think there are and 6's. The Teemu chassis is just the bottom deck, no thicker upper deck.

Gary - Get the P-Dub bumper. It pretty much stops front end parts breakage....unless you really detonate your car.

Hey Gary, A few month back, I too went thru a couple of sets of caster blocks and decided to try the aluminum ones ( I think only 4 degree are available) What ever is making your stock ones break, will bend these pretty purple aluminun ones After we re-slurried our track, I havn't had as much contact with the boards ...... and walla!!! less broken parts

...gone faster than a airline bottle of....
