Since you're around Dave, do you have any good tips on removing the pivot balls from suspension arms? They were a pig to get in, must be worse to get them out.

Now that you've had time to sort out the Barracuda, what are your opinions good or bad.

There are a few of them at the Track and they are doing rather well.

Thanks,
Doesn't anyone have some comments?

Thanks,

I just stick the end of an allen wrench in them and pop them out at an angle, never broken the A-Arm doing that, and it's quick.

Yah guys...anything to help a fellow racer out? He's asked twice and the "experts" either missed him or ignored him? Is there a secret handshake or something?

Hey Pops`

If you still have your Pro3 thiscar is light years ahead of it.. really easy to work on and and it`s very strong out of the box... it just really needs only 2 hop ups and your ready to race with it...
some of the bad points are that there is alost toooooo many hop ups for the car that come out and they all work well...it`s just you really don`t need them( well some people do )
-Dave
