Gadget, I ordered some pig rc ones earlier this week. I'm waiting for the package to arrive still. I should be getting them in the next day or two. My experiences with buying drift products from japan has made me less hesitant about international shipping, lol.

Yes, but they will be included. The length of the screws included will be for the stock aluminum shock shock tower. Not sure how much thinner the CF tower is and the length might be ok.

Starting on this right now...

The wing mount holes on the CF tower are counter bored as well, so you won't have any issues

Last time I looked I couldn't get them shipped to the US so that's good that you were...Googled them yesterday and couldn't find them at all.

Though right now my RC budget is pretty much nill...Found out a couple days ago that my job is being outsourced so I have 90 days left until I'm unemployed. Hopefully I'll find something soon.

First prototype of the rear diff retainers with rear swaybar mount. Still some minor clean-up needed, but overall I am pretty happy how they turned out. If testing goes well next week, they should be available soon.

Yes, for right now. We will test it thoroughly with this material to see how it holds up. If it doesn't, we will have to go the route of aluminum.

I'm absolutely down for a set of those when they're made available. Would be nice not to have to modify the rear sways to fit properly with the arms flipped. I don't think the plastic would be trouble there IMO, doesn't seem like it's too high stress of an area.

Congratulations to Ryan Lutz for the TQ sweep at Silverstate! No small feat to TQ 4 classes against the competition there.

Lutz has always been fast. His problem is luck. He always races as many classes as he can, and that usually results in strange dnfs. If it weren't for bad luck, he would have no luck at all. If he had his dad wrenching for him at all the big races he would probably finish a lot more consistently. Hartson, King, Cav, Tebo and others all have daddy spinning wrenches when they run a lot of classes.

Pit man has nothing to do with it.....Lutz has Wes Brown turning the wrenches, and make no mistake, Wes is top-notch.

I don't know if it's bad luck, or something else, but I'm sure we'll be seeing Ryan near the top of the leader board very often.

Personally, I think its just Lutz's driving style, aggressive and "100% all the time."

Can only imagine would it would be if he was driving something else (AE ).

A design suggestion...if you make them so the sway bar retainers bolt on vertically from the rear it would make sway bar changes easier. With them bolting on from the top either the wing or the diff retainers would have to be removed to get to the screws to swap the sway bar out.
