Hey cool it...as I said before, take no offence... Anyway, the pipe with spring holder is made in such a way so as to minimise the damage to your engine and manifold... unlike the old side exhaust... so I guess since it's designed this way, we should be more careful in our driving...

By the way, my driving is far from perfect, so I DO still kiss walls... just a point to let you know... but hey, I'm still working hard on it!

I use ZAC Project (also known as Kawahara) Foams 35 shore rear 26 mm, and 40 shore front 26 mm. Both are the multi-ring type. At the local track I run on they hook great! I like them alot.

Any one knows of a front shock stay that can lay your front shocks lower? Checked the Kahawara and K Factory, but they are all normal height...

I am using Mugen Fast tires, 45 in the front and 42 in the rear. They last as least 2 race days including practice.

Yes I run it on blown and prepped Asphalt sprayed with Rootbeer. The wear in the rear is more than the wear in front. I can get about 3 - 4 full days of racing with it.

At the recent 1/8th worlds there was reports of the designer of the V one R running his front shock top mounts with new holes drilled futher inboard about 3mm on each side. The screw was then fixed with a nut.
