You will definately be seeing me crashing. The novice class at our club has lots of crashes, pileups and flying cars. I need something reasonably tough.

If you buy the P-DUB bumper you'll be fine.

FK05 because even if you have the p-dub bemper the bemper system is not conected to the bylk heads so the impact would break the chasis

the fk05 has a problem with bent bulk heads and there is nothing wrong with the chassis on the T2.

No it does not. You would need to purchase more of those items. Just get one. They are very nice cars and handle well. Get a P dub bumper and your front end will be strong. Just do not hit stuff. Guys on this board will say that this and that are week. But they are hitting the frigging wall and blaming the car!

Hey what have you guys been using with the shocks on a high traction carpet track? How many holes open in the front and rear? Just curious.

I have been using 2 holes open in the front and 1 hole open in the rear.

I just ran this past weekend using rubber on a high grip carpet.

I ran 4 holes open front and back with 30w oil. Foams in the shocks. Silver & gold stock springs. Shocks on the outer holes on the bottom and 2 from the top in the front and third from the bottom in the rear. 4mm downstops, 5 mm ride heigt, 1 degree camber front and rear, 1 degree toe-in in the rear, 0.25 out in the front, and the camber links at hole #1 in the front, and hole #3 in the rear. I was also using cs22 with tq blue traction compound on about 40% of the fronts and 75% of the rears. This was is stock class

My car was wicked fast and has never felt so good.
