So what place did you start Ryan? Are you the one a-holing the guy at the start, or being a-holed? The first lap or two looked pretty brutal. I think there is one car that wrecked half the field.

Don't listen to all this skepticism. There are a ton of people not breaking a single thing on the new car. You can get the new holder off of m2cracing.com. Also which race are you going to? The one at waldorf on saturday?

tower has them i just ordered mine yesterday, just typein 5.5mm and it will come up.

dont be worried about the car guys, i have 2 full race days on mine and no issues, just make sure you have built it correctly and double check everything after a couple of tanks and you should be good to go!

I know someone who has one and it's been through numerous race days without anything breaking. Including one race day on the most blown out, roughest tracks I've ever seen, including some punting and crashing drivers, and the car came out fine.

For every individual having a problem, there are 20 whom aren't.

Tried 7-5-2 in my diffs. So far IMO it's much better than 5-5-2 or 5-7-2. I didn't lose any off power steering and gained some on power steering. It's much more stable and you can nail the throttle and the rear won't try to come around. The rest of my setup is Hughes except for less anti-squat and 2.5 rear toe. For my track I could have stayed with the stock shock setup with 400 in the rear instead. With this setup it drives alot like my 5R did with much more steering.

Still haven't broke a thing, it might be as tough as the 5R.
