Did anyone notice the 2speed bulkhead and rear bulkhead, are different with stock car? And they linked together with plastic-like column.

Kind surprise no one seems say anything about it on forum, all focus is on DLS/DAX (which I personally think just marketing buzz)
That was talked about earlier, a few pages back, and yes, I did noticed it, right away too.

As stated before they are going to be option parts. Different color because they didn't have time to get all the parts anodized before the worlds. They are another tuning option to control the flex at the rear of the car. It can be ran with or without the 2speed and rear bulkhead connected.

The new parts seems nice for the 733's performance but it also looks like it will make it more difficult to service the rear belt and diff.

I need to replace my 2 speed shoes for my 733. What is the difference between 902416 and the 802404? I thought the 733 and 966 shared the same 2 speed shoes.


Pass you soon...

shoes are the same, but the springs are different.

Thanks for the reply. I believe I have the 966 springs in my car. I borrowed a shoe with springs at the track from a 966 driver. I need to replace his parts.
The springs seem to work fine.


Pass you soon...

The springs have to be harder, different engine size, different power band, different power.

Mine lasted 5 races. My friend's lasted 2.

I lost a qualifier because of this reason. I'll probably never use them again unless they give them away for free.
