Yeah Harry, Just confirmed that fact!

Here's my delemma... The OnRoad Fuel Nats is 7/27-8/1.... A lot of our guys who make up the core of Big Apple are going and will be hard pressed to make a race the very next week being 8/8...

Saturday 8/14 WAS the original date for the Region 2 Regional race, they just recently moved it to Sunday 8/15...

Sunday 8/15 was a predetermined date secured by EDRC back in February 2004...

If you would like to race sooner, NERCAR.com has a race coming up 8/1 in Middlebury Ct. which I will attend as well. The address and travel directions are posted on their site.
They Run a GREAT RACE!!! The turn out is always good too!!!

Plastic or alum in handling I don't think there is a difference it's all for looks try 30 weight it depends on your driving style a little

Theres really no difference between the alum. and composite shocks. Hell, I actually forgot that my Pro4 has them and my R40 doesn't. The alum. units will last longer, but who keeps any car long enough for the shocks to wear out anyway!

Really, all you would get with the alum. units is more weight, and thats the last thing our R40 needs is more weight.

In case any of you are interested, I have for sale an adjustable rear sway bar kit for the R40. Look in the for sale forum.

Thanks,

Anybody know how much the hpi lightweight engine mounts weight?

I just weighed the stock ones and my scale says 8 grams each. Just wondering how much lighter the new mounts are.
