According to what Bruce told me on the phone yesterday. The green would be about 8K, and the red about 12k. I didn't ask about blue because I never use it.

You can also just use shure lube.. I'm 99% confident it is the same stuff.

Default Carbon side links

Has anyone talked to Bruce about the carbon side links for the REV 6?

Has anyone used them instead of the adjustable turnbuckle links? Any pictures?

Yes it is shur lube as Hanulec said.

Carbon side links. They work good. I've seen them on 2 cars. One being a complete durability tester (Sorry Bob) and my current car has them. They've held up great. Can't complain. Is it something most are interested in? I'll talk to him about it tomorrow at the shop.

Hi Greg
Have you ran your Rev 6 yet? What do you think of it so far?

Default REV 6

I'm still running the "Chicky Chassis S120L" and like it allot!! But the REV 6 is a great car. Very responsive and if you follow Bruce's standard set-up it has great corner speed. I think the REV 6 will be my 10.5 car.

Now I just need my carbon side links for some bling factor. Hopefully I can make the ROAR Nat's in March.
