Please to hear how well the Stinger is going with you Dave. Funny you mentioned about Knuckle because I have own a few Barracuda in the last 2 years and have never broke one (I have upgrade one of mine to the Square product) but otherwise I still got the original spare.

On the Stinger.... the offset is a bit different than the Barracuda... there seems to "not" be enough meat for the screw to hold on to... but this was the case with the Barracuda... now what I have found out is that the new Stinger Axle and the Pro4 Alex are pretty much the same size.... hint hint.... . and the dog bones are the same lenght...hint hint..... so we might be able to use a MIP style bone with the Stinger....... I'm in the prosses of doing a bunch of test fitting and measuring with Hybrid Parts right now... I post more when I am done

Dave, any news on the hybrid?

As well do you know whether other aftermarket parts will be available for the Stinger, ie. Square (aluminium knuckle), Excel, etc.

Who makes those anodized screws and turnbuckles from your Stinger, do they have that in Pink?

We got a Stinger over here in the UK now Just got to get it down to the KO GP at West London this weekend now. Definately work in progress on that one. The rest of the batch should be here in less than a week

Looks like I will be living down the local track once they arrive

Tim,
It's currently sat in Richard's office at Centre.Point
Hope to get it up to the KO for people to see this weekend, as I said earlier.....work in progress. It would be good to get it seen at a big event like the KO...well that's my feelings anyway and not necessarily those of management. As I said...work in progress
Fingers crossed though

All going well, the cars should be available next week sometime... price is still being worked on I believe, but will be competitive

Will have more information at or just after the weekend
