use the red shock bladder foam full sized in the out drives. You do not have to cut them. They will be too long initially, but soon compress to the proper size. Cutting them is an unnecessary step...

Like I said, if I say white, you'll say black. The reason the 54000 don't work, especially in your application, has nothing to do with the amount of travel. I explained it awhile back. But you're a...

This could very likely be the case. The set of B slicks I have were from longer ago than that. Remember hat they did to the Type A slicks. They went from great to pure junk.

For me the B tires had more grip the A tire. All around a much better tire than the A. Again, outdoor asphalt and not carpet.

Chicanes are all about timing and coming as close going thru it in a straight line as possible. Never try to go thru it faster than your timing allows. With experience your timing will get faster.

It's still pretty slow even when you advance it to the stop. If you loosen the screws enough you can get it to jump the stop. It's been awhile, but I don't think a Sonic is worth much until the...

I remember using the balls and ball ends from my FK05. They were precision, but they were pure hell to pop off. If you're looking for "no play", you might consider the X-ray parts. Pure quality.
