Ergal saves the most weight, but titanium is stronger.
I'm using titanium pivot balls in the front and aluminium in the rear.

Weight differance is a few gramms. But a thing to consider is what i have experienced. Titanium breaks and aluminium bends. The CAP alu pivot balls are hollow but the xray one`s are not. So they are stronger and only bend with shunts. so it will get you to the finish with maybe handling difficulty.

We have, and it is great. Less agressive than the SRS-N, and not totally unlike the P37 on the track that we tested at in our opion. You should give it try; it's always an alternative. The SRS-N is usually our preferred choice however, as the boy likes the aggressive steering that it gives.

Kindest regards,
Lars.

I hope it works because I think it's pretty nice looking shell:



Btw, for the ones who've been searching for some of those extra body supports on the rear of the shocktower, the ones Serpent makes are a direct fit:



You only have to cut a tiny amount of the locating pin on the bodypost.
