PSI Racer: No, I've had no CNC work done on my chassis. I think you might be thinking of Randy.

JKerr: WOW! I'm jealous. I can't wait to get my set (which will hopefully be tomorrow as you already have yours).

WORD OF CAUTION WHEN USING TAMIYA DAMPERS!!!!

Make sure you shim them properly - otherwise, you put pressure on the shaft and inturn, deform the piston guide. I made this mistake and now have to buy new rod guide / oring kits (cheap and should be replaced anyway according to a Tamiya guru I spoke with). Still, I only ran two race days before wearing out my front guides.

James: How many shims are you running behind yours on the drilled tower?

JKerr: Will you let me know how you shim yours up and how it works out for you?
