Maybe Alex will pick up on making the shaft holders in the hard material, people that dont want to spend $80 on the aluminum shaft holders would definately want them, and others would want them for weight savings.

Hopefully all of the new outdrives will be hard material from now on, your other outdrive was messed up

my suggestion would be long arm setup. go to alexracingusa site and use RBF Reedy setup for a starter or the stock setup seems awful good base.

welcome to the cuda school

I didn't take the pics, my R2 is in the pic of the three of us, just not easy to see
The photo's are from the SMTCA.org website, I'll have to make sure they get my car next time.
