AWESOME!!!!!!! If you can find one, I'll paypal the money to you. I'm thinking about one of those negative diffs also. I've got to have a new secret weapon for this season. The Impulse guys are tight on my rear, and we're going to have 2 Reflexes out there now. The guys are testing them. One guy ran an OB4 last year; he was about 1 - 1 1/2 secs behind me. With the new Reflex, he's consistently turning 1/2 - 1 sec better than me. With a brand new car, right out of the box!!!!! Should be some awesome racing this year.

I dont know how good of a driver you are and the condition of the track you are going to run your car at! and my opinion affect from the 2 above points.
If you are one of those top notch driver then go for the inline pipe because
1. Believe it or not the first thing you are going to damage to your car is the pipe, especially the tip where the smoke is coming out of!
2. Inline pipe usually cost more(sometimes double, depends on brands)
3. I truely think performance wise are the same compare with the 2, inline and pipe with header.

I think I am a ok driver, dont hit anything often(usually got sent to the board by other drivers) but I still went through like 3 pipes in 5 months!

that is a good point! i am a pretty good driver but i still get loose from time to time so i realize that staying with a seperate pipe and manafold would bet cheaper. expecially if i have to replace the pipe cause of damage. thanks for bringing that to my attention. chris

Lightbulb Boca Bearings

What do ya'll guy think about upgrading the bearing set on the mtx-2?? Are the stock rubber sealed bearings good or is a set of boca ultra sealed bearings better. Would i see a difference in the car rolling resistance?? Boca set of bearings are running around $115 for the set.

Really depends on what kind of track you are running your car at! if you are just going to run your car at those nicely preped and blown permanent track then stock bearing will do it's job! (and of course assume you clean your car throughoutly after each time you are done racing or practicing).

If you are going to race your car on those dusty unpreped parking lot then it's not bad of a idea to go for Boca Ultra Sealed Bearing because those stock bearing wont last that long under these conditions!

Just my $0.02
