Oh yea, I raced the car today after doing the drive shaft blade mod that NEXUS suggested. I ran 7 battery packs and didn't change the blades all day. Didn't remove them, just looked at them installed on the car. They seemed pretty good.

I just checked them now since I'm back at home. The front shows a little sign of wear, but the rears had the same wear as before. None of the blades really expaned outward, just that same excessive wear on the inner edge at the ball area of the dogbone. It wore down to the pin.

I will install the other diff in, as the current one has some outdrive wear/damage at the blade contact area and keep a closer eye on it.

I am seriusly considering trying it out again with the pro version, got to think about it though for a little while.
I just got a new radio and I desided to give the new pro module and recever a try. I really could not feel or tell a diference and my laptimes where just as good as they would have been with the regular stuff.

Default Ultra Stiff Bumper?

Yesterday at the races I broke a couple of steering blocks making the same costly mistake on the same corner every time out. My question is...has anyone tried the ultra stiff foam bumper from P-dub? I was considering ordering one in hopes of saving a few steering blocks in the future.

The bumpers are a must. Pdub bumper on every car I own.... They just plain work better.

Get one. I have hit corners hard and it works great. Not one broken front part with it.

Awsome, thanks for the feedback. I just ordered it. Now do you guys use this foam bumper in conjunction with the Xray's T2 Impact Absorbing Lower Front Bumper or do you just use it with the stock lower bumper?

Whatever happened to the adjustable c-hubs that were being made?

Broken because they had no Pdub bumper.
Sorry... Serious again.

No idea.

Peeps this is one of those tools that's a "MUST HAVE!!!!" It just flat out works!!! There's no guess work, no need to have "four" hands in order to de-tweak your chassis. This tools gives you another advantage over your competition!

Its a thick alumn plate that fits on the bottom of the chassis and it has holes in it to access every screw in the bottom of the chassis. It comes with 4 standoffs that go through the 4 holes in the corners of the chassis and clamps the chassis to the plate so it is perfectly flat. You loosen all the chassis screws (Bulkheads and standoffs) and then loosen the top deck screws. Then you tighten them all back down and it keeps everything squar and tweak free. Once you do the bottom screws once you dont have to do it anymore unless you take them loose.

All tweak issues will be gone when using this plate!! If all the Xray "Factory" drivers (Blackstock, Burch, Lemuix, Flack, etc) bought them then you know its good!!

EA is correct. The tweak plate is awesome. I first used it at the Reedy Race and then the Nats and never had 1 run where my car was even the slightest bit tweaked. I can't wait to use it on tight carpet tracks where you bounce of boards every run. Definetly going to be a big help. So, you guys all definetly need to get one of these things for your tool box.
