I don't care I think its awesome and long may it continue.

I got a cool idea that I want to try with that forward mounted rear end. Gonna see what it would take to get it finished right before I dig into it.

BTW, for anyone wanting to try Keith's shock mount setup, I found a super easy way to drill the arms for the BK bracket. Use a 3/32" drill bit and drill through the arm to the front side using the outer shock mount hole as your guide. I did this on 2 arms, then checked the measurements, and they were exactly the same. Run the screws through for your BK brackets, and use CA glue to fill the origional hole once the new hole is plugged with the screw.

I also file down the face of the arm where the bracket mounts to make the bracket paralell with the stock mount.

I wouldn't say that, because it definately makes the car harder to drive, I'd really only suggest it if you absolutely need those extra tenths to win. You guys can guess that Pro-Mod at SoCal is pretty tough, so I'm basically trying anything I can to get the laptimes low.

My car has a couple other dremel works productions on it too that seem to be helping out. Major thanks to Dirtinator and Steve Weiss for the knowledge passed on to me.

I thought about this, but to me, I think youd have to be pretty steady with your dremel to get it to go through strait.. also, even with the back fill, you have a hole all the way through the arm.

I just put two old style arms next to each other, and "eyeballed" it. If your off a couple thousandths.. ah well.. shouldnt make a difference. Now..1mm, 2mm.. well.. try again...

and weather or not they will include this in kits? Dunno.. i suppose thats up to the upper level guys. They are developing an update for the car.. and if it is deemed to be valuable.. i dont see why not. Another tuning option is usually a good thing...
I know it made the car easier to drive on the rug.. and kinda suspected it may be more pronounced on asphalt... but theres always ways to calm a car down..
