  • Serious question, why are you not using wheelie bars on these cars? They would save you a lot of pain and suffering.

  • Cut all of it off, put your strut mounts on some front roll bars. I deal with this on front wheel drive dirt cars all the time. You need a tube from the cage all the way down to the front of the frame horns.

  • James, you Kyle and ol’ cleeter need to use wheelie bars on test days. I get if you use them you’ll bump into a different class. But you’d save yourself a lot of headache and damage by using them on test days, take em’ off on race days. That way you can tune the wheelie out of it, and save the body, frame, mounts... your spine.

  • Can you talk James into wrapping the 240 in a twisted tea wrap. Feel it is suiting with the twisted tead incident and the twisted frame roughly happen around the same time.

I understand the channel has become bigger and your time is well consumed but i feel like building and racing was the point. I love the shows yall put on and am looking forward for more.
