Masami and Noato will be there from Japan. I'm not sure if who else will be attending the worlds for Yokomo. Maybe Chris Grainger from Europe?

Something I spotted being used at the 08 Japan Nationals, so I thought I would try.
Your thoughts

Yea that steering plate looks great, i just changed mine to the Trf steering rack but the blue dosent match That one looks way better.

There the Bd/Sd sway bars, they work a lot better than the older ones IMO.

I will be trying this later this year, now that I have a second car that is being rebuilt and has most of the mod done.
So far the tyre (Australian) wear is quite acceptable for my style of driving as I have always had plenty of steering with the BD and never had to use full lock with the standard setup. I have owned this car from when they were originally released, but has been on the shelf for the last 2 years while I played with a TOP and a 416.
Recently I put the BD on the track again and blew the lap times of the 416 away. Some cars I just can't get settled with
