Beat me to it...

Yet, I have not seen Pietsch's clutch being called a copied design.

Haters gonna hate...

Its nice idea, but the price is 3/4 of a complete chassis kit, its better to buy a new 2012 spec. Only 4 original gearbox housing, fuel tank remain unchange, the rest are new design.

Florida State Race and Winternats right around the corner. Would you guys be interested in a clutch and a set up seminar some evening during our Red Cup celebration ?

Would like to know what is the effect of this setting, do not like the idea using big tires and drop ride height to achieve the results. Comparing to the MRX5, RX8 seems like a pan car.

Increased front chassis lift on power
Increase the amount of initial on power steering
Decrease high speed steering
Decrease car steering reaction
