    Bought a FT screw kit for my Sc10. Now I will wait for that to get here then install my rpm a-arms.

    not yet but I am looking forward to it....The third hole is a great addition to tuning and the springs should be just enough(I hope) to give me the rebound I'm looking for

    Hahaha
    Well, when I started our 'boss' of the track learnt me also how to rebuild a diff and my shocks. He asked if I could show him how to do it because he is busy.
    And yeah I enjoy building/maintaining cars :D

    Sounds good, he also drives a SC10 :)
