Default was curious about set-up

I was just wondering what your set-up was. I appreciate you posting that info Donny, thanks.

Was watching on RClive, thought you had that one wrapped up, it was very dramatic even without being there. I was all as you were cutting mid 9's all race then and .

Give your Rev6 some added bling with this pod rear brace from Powell Racing Components. This part is cut from 2.5mm CF and engraved using a V-bit. Acrylic paint makes the letters pop. Custom engraving is also available.

Email or PM for for price or more information.
