I used to run the AE Factory team springs. Now I run the New Schu Pro Springs. They are both the same size but the Schu spring have tighter rate tolerances. They are actually more precise than the Xray springs according to the spring test in XRC.

Some of the first things you'll want to get are the aluminum rear hubs, maybe the aluminum rear suspension mounts (mostly for tuning options). P-Dub front bumper, AE springs or the Schumacher Pro-touring Springs (part #'s U2823-U2828 ) Eventually you may want to invest in some Tamiya TRF Shocks like most of us run and the lowered carpet shock towers. Plus the usual spare parts list, arms, spindles, caster blocks, etc...

They are actually made with a thermo nuclear bonding process that allows a field of protection surrounding your car. Some of the technology was stolen from the Dubmiester and used in the T.V. show Knight Rider.


Really they just cause you not to break your car when you make a not so wise driving maneuver. I test this theory every time I race.

This explains the Teemu and BMI chassis. P-dub's bumpers are wider and MUCH stronger than the stock bumper.

Here's the thread for P-Dub's products. Read the testimony of all the people who use them.

Kid, get the BMI Chassis kit, with a stiff ( wide ) top deck. You would also want to get the BMI shock towers or the Schumacher carpet towers.
