yeah, I've clipped pipes and gone straight into the wall before. Gotten ran over by sedans during practice. Most memorable was I hit a corner marshall's size 12 steel toe on full blast, car came to a dead stop. Still, nothing broken. Just about the only thing broken on my car were 2 front body mount screws, I use crappy ti screws and they bent. Car has been real strong for me so far......<knock on wood>.

Just a small bit of work. You can just grind the balls down a bit. I have a hard polishing wheel on my grinder. Takes some time w/ calipers, but it works great. And you get the RED.......

I thought CRC ballsstuds from their cars are 2/56 as well. IRS rugrat or CEFX are 4/40, but if I'm correct, CRC's are 2/56.

Dom,
Last night Guy ran and destroyed a wheel in the main, it was literally broken in half thru the bearing, the only thing that was holding it together was the foam, he ran on it for 5-6 min, it was pretty funny. I may run 12th on Sat. we will see who shows up and if I am prepared.

Chad

I don't think Brian is going so you might be the lone spanker! Make sure you represent and spank hard on the track!
