It must be that time of year again.... Time to start a "Where is Bruce Carbone?" thread.

Beavis told me that his wife Krissy had the twins around the 4th of July and she is supposed to be coming home tomorrow (Friday).

Stick with the stock old skool AE front suspension that comes with the Rev 4.5. That front end won every major US race last year.

You can point them in the direction of the nearest Dunkin Donuts.

Did you try ordering them here?

I would simply send the part back to IRS. The plates are purchased by Speedmerchant from there, and they should be able to help you out. The web site was given above.

Write them a nice letter, and Im sure if it is actually their fault they will get you taken care of in short order.

If youre still running the e-clip setup you can change that. Just use a screw through the steering block to hold the king pin and use 1/8 washers to shim it up. You can also shave down the steering block .033 to get the steering block lower on the arm. I can run down to the rim and get a 3.5mm ride height with a small rim parma tire.

We're trying to restock our shop, so we need a dealer list. I think we found Bruce but then he vanished again.

Fellow Speedmerchants,

Anyone know if the online store on the speedmerchant website is actively processing orders and shipping? I'd like to buy some parts for my 4.5. I sent an email to the "contact us" address about a week ago asking if they were up and running but I haven't gotten a reply. Thanks.

Andy
