The hex screw was a temp screw used while waiting for the upgraded style we are used too. It is an upgraded screw but not exactly what they wanted.

What type of racing are you going to be doing? Carpet with rubber or foam tires? Asphalt on rubber?

I have everything stock on my car as far as the suspension goes. It already has a lot of aluminum goodies and stuff. I'd rather break a plastic arm than bend bulkheads or suspension mounts.

Things I always have spares of are blades for the CVD's, Arms (I prefer the X-tra hard 75% graphite arms), a few steering knuckles if you dont already have the aluminum ones. I try to keep a few 5x9 bearings on hand too... they go in the hubs and tend to wear out every now and then. Other than that I havent had any major issues.

Shock oil...... 40-60wt is usually good. Just depends, it should be too different than your tc4. For most racign I always start with 60wt up front and 40wt in the rear. Hope that helps ya out.

Has anyone else had a problem with rear shock towers? I have broken almost one per weekend.

I was blazing through them when I had my camber links in the outer most holes like a lot of the setups use. I moved them in one hole and haven't broken one since. I do wish there was a little more "meat" on the tower to support the outer hole.

Jeff, I seen in a resent catalog that was sent to me from you guys that there is a clear chassis protector/cover. Do you have a part number because I cannot find the catalog anymore? Thanks!

Do most people run 2 degree rear hubs with rubber tires on asphalt/carpet or shim the arms? Running Takeoff CS27 tires how many shims do you use behind the front roll center blocks?

Well if the diff was a fresh rebuild they do have to break in and be tightened slightly after each run to keep them from "barking" or slipping.

If you put a good sized washer between the stud and the tower it disperses a lot of the load and prevents them from breaking so easily. Hope that helps. Also, something Jeff Cuffs does is just runs a standard stud, not the extended one. He claims that it keeps them from breaking, and typically when Jeff talks, its a good idea to listen
