Thanks for the help Francis.

You're welcome, TQ on 10.5 and a win in both 10.5 and 13.5 shows this car is just more than competitive... Just wish I could have stayed for the rest of the race... I found out that I still qualilfied 4th in 10.5 after leaving early....

Francis's car is amazing! I had a BD when it first came out and sold it to drive a 415 MRE then to a Cyclone TC. I had a chance to drive Francis's BD this past Saturday and all I have to say is that this car is still very competitive with the mods done to the steering rack, chubs etc. Car is very stable with traction galore and alot of steering...Makes me regret getting rid of mine!

If I remember correctly the main difference is in the hardness.
I'm assuming TW-1012H2 is harder....

yes the inner rib is lower allowing the insert to be closer the rim to create more air gap i suppose.

i prefer the original rim Part# TW-1012-2
