Another thing that occurs to me is...with all the open room in the rims we can balance rims again if we want to. With all the long springs, kingpins and thick suspensions no one could put balance tape in the rim any longer...now we should be able to again. Of course that's only if you feel it really makes a difference. I am pretty lazy so I probably wont

Jason, great to see this *open* engineering, I like it very much !

Aren't you afraid that the new alu brace is going to bend or crack around the screw holes in a hit to the boards ?

The part is very rigid. There is always a possibility of anything bending or breaking but i try to make them as durable as possible. It is very very strong.

Yeah...I really enjoyed meeting Jason at the Birds 2 years ago and discussing design ideas and getting a ton of help in getting my car up to speed.

I should have some pics up in a little bit of the new front end. This is pretty much what production will be.

You can use a TQ Booster or a LiFe pack. I personally prefer the LiFe pack.
