We're racing on tracks that use pvc piping and couplers that kill you car. Not to mention, we're all really fast. You've heard the saying: "The faster you go, the easier you break", haven't you? Well, maybe you don't have that problem. I guess its just one of the pitfalls of racing with two of the world's fastest stock car racers (Jeff Cuffs & Jason Shreffler).

Take a small drill bit and drill it out, then go to sears and pick up an easy out bit.

My car was loud until we greased the thrust bearings properly.

There are plenty of fast drivers...The local track I race with is the home track for Wayne Vince....but gives a crap about name dropping? My cars are plenty fast enough to do damage, I just have found that the car is quite durable *IF* you have the upper bumper mount intact....if you are running a broken or patched upper bumper mount then you're putting your car at risk..

Has anyone tried the multidiff with the front wheels locked together but the wheels free spinning like a oneway yet?

I have a really god setup for a spool so I am going to experiment a little more.

Name dropping!!! saw Wayne at the Fastcats race this weekend Windsorguy... Where were you? or... were you there?

Took my first trophy ever +) 3rd in B-main stock!! woohoo 1st decent sized race I have ever participated in, and the FK05 did not let me down! couple glitches attributed to motor but the car was solid requiring next to zero maintenance the whole weekend.

Definitely not the car holding me back... turned my fastest lap of the event in the very last lap of the main.. if only I had turned it up sooner... musta finished within 2 feet of 2nd place.
