Default Body posts!

Speaking of body mounts…I wanted to know if most of you have kept the screw on type body mount or have switched to a conventional type? It seems to me that the screw body mounts are definitely needed in the front to help secure the top graphite bumper plate.

Also, is there any easy method of screwing on those body mounts holders without ripping up your hands???LOL

Basically, what have most of you done with the kit body mounts?

i switched 'em out for some others... if you keep the stock ones, after some use they will loosen up, but it is a lil rough for a while. i use some, uh, brand T body posts, and a long body clip to hold the bumper plate down... although im not sure it needs it. even without the clip, its pretty solid.

i use the corally screw things, i like them because i dont have to worry about loosing them or the body, i know alot of people who have just drilled holes up and down the body post, and used the screw downs as the support for the body and just put a body clip on top

Yes I raced on the Nats track a couple of time already. What do you need to know about it? I'll try to help you any way possible.

TJ,

Cuffs has ran on it. I hear it is super smooth, okay traction, but bruttle boards. Some corners with no flappers and just straight 2x4's....

I've had the same body posts on the car since I built it. I have yet to break one and/or have one loosen. You can tighten the posts down with pliers since you will never put the body rests down that far.

TJ..... i think that is where Cuffs wanted to buy stock in suspension arms. Like RB said...... rumors are BRUTLE.

Jeff

anyone running aluminum arms, if so, are you lubing them or just letting them go dry?

Yes the place is killer on parts!! I was there when Cuffs broke so many parts he had to put the car away for the day. The boards are double 2x4 and the flappers on the corners had gallon buckets of sand in the middle of them. It was crazy on parts so stock up. The track is pretty large to and you run from on top of a super tall driver stand.

Sounds like a somewhat-local track around here. The track is very large and the driver's stand is like 10 feet in the air, at least. I've only been there once, but we ran mod and the cars "felt" so slow when they were right below you...very hard to get used to from being only like 3-4 feet above the track.

TJ- I ran on it a few times. It is pretty smooth, there is one rough section but the last layout they had didnt include it. The traction picked up, its Frank's newest ozite (cleveland last 2 years and the birds this year), so it gets cars running on it, it should be fine.
Boards were that bad last time i ran on it, it was just the layout they had before the regional.

But both layouts werent exactly tight and techinical and the drivers stand is really high.

PM me if u want the rev. 4 set up i ran there, but i am sure your snowbirds set up will be really close if not alot more dialed, lol
(Also i am running parma tires).
