the only thing i don't like is you can't adjust the camber gain or alter the camber pivot point on this car. I have no clue if it's even requred for a car design like this but it's always a nice option to have on any car.

Bottom line is i want mine NOW!!

The current fashion is to adjust the camber link with spacers. Looks like you could do that on this car.

Personally, I was hoping the belt car would release first. I've been on the fence for a while, now. The outdoor season is starting everywhere and I wanted a belt car to run.

Well the decision to put the shaft car in production was taken before the belt car was even made so it just makes sense that they release the shaft before.

Now that it is official, since the TF-5 without sub-name is now designated for the "Shaft Car", does that mean that the "Belt Car" will come under a completely different name?

In other words they are calling this car the "TF-5" not the "TF-5 SD". So there will NOT be a "TF-5 BD" but something else?

Tim? Anyone? Anyone?

Hey Tim, some of the goodies on the TF-5 would look good on my ZX-5 any chance of parts being available in May as well. I'm sure there will be lots of intereest on the graphite top deck and the alum. pin braces.

Yes, I can get them aftermarket but factory items are better.
