One of our local racers has fabricated a solid piece bumper of a similar material and has it available at the LHS for $14.95. It has been working pretty good.

Sydewynder...so far so good.We haven't broke one since we got the spare.I added a couple of extra screws at the back of the shock tower(through the access holes on the shock tower) that are @ 1 1/4" long and screw into the diff cover next to the drive shaft.Also on mine I added a small brace that holds down the shock tower.
As a side note one of our local "fast" guys replaced his screws with button head screws inserted from the inside of the diff case.Just add small nuts and washers to hold down the shock tower! Seems to work well!
As always thanks for looking out for us!

Kansasracer.
I am one of the local drivers Korgae runs with occasionally and I like the chassis.I feel it has the same flex overall and allows a bit more air thru the chassis.It is eye candy for sure but it is also 6 grams lighter than stock with all screws counter sunk deep.The engine I think sits lower in the chassis cuz of the supplied mounts with the GH kit so CG is not heavily effected altho the roll center may be slightly effected.Some slight shimming for pivot block mounts should more than make up the difference in the roll center tho.I am looking forward to racing with mine but off road has taken it's bite out of me.(Too much on road carpet kinda makes you want dirt)Good luck with your chassis I like mine and I have my stock one still just in case.I have heard of guys bending the stock one from flipping and landing badly but these chassis bends from both chassis must be expected from nasty accidents.

I've got one of Irrgang's front bumpers. This thing is so stiff that I don't know if I'll ever be able to break it. (believe me I'm not going to try) But I did break the kydex bumper in the first race I was in. (Raytona was the race) When I threw the new bumper in I didn't have any problems after that.

Hi Guys,

We updated the NTC3 section with some of the hop-ups we got in last Friday. We also have two new hop-ups we'll add to the website tomorrow.

Thanks

To All: instead of buying the solid rear axle, has anyone tried tightening up the rear diff?? Just curious is all. Also, has anyone tried using the washers under the balls on the steering rack?? If so, what has been the advantage or dis-advantages?? Thanks
