    Thought it would be cool to post up pictures of all the cars I made in the order I made them.

    Started Nov 2016.

    If I'm seeing this right, you have carbon with rectangle hole > carbon with bracket holding spring > rear stay with spring slot, all held down by springs?


    Waaaait a minute...do I spy an LED?

    The sliding damper is from ( Nagasawa - Youtube:
    )

    Thou knowing what know now...his is more trouble than it's worth imo. Don't need all that carbon. There is a locknut on top of the sliding damper to hold the sliding damper down. Then I have a H-Bar (Rear Multi roller setting carbon piece) Shaved dramatically for the shape (Just for looks, nothing functional...maybe some clearance) and the springs hold the plate complete parallel. I realized that the rear mass dampers don't need to hit to be effective, they just need to absorb the shock from landing a jump, and this thing works beautifully. I shaved the mass damper down to a smaller diameter for weight savings. The LED is from the MS bumperless pieces, and it's super helpful when you are trying to watch 5 cars go around the track.

    New MA tuned class car. (No cutting of carbon/frp, no trimmed tires etc).

    New team livery (checkout TeamKuso on Instagram)

    The manga featured on the windows is called, Kuso Manga Bukuro and it's awesome. It's literal plot synopsis is "illogical plot lines" which perfectly describes this manga.
