Wondering what is the rules around Spherical Bearings and new bushings? I an attempt to make the car stiffer, this is the next logical move for next season. I will also be doing some further weight reduction, aero and cams. Which should land me in GT1 next year.

Can anyone tell me if there is any pips for Spherical bearings or replacement of bushings.

Hey Grant,

You'd need to claim rule #5.1.B.10 - Non-authorized modification of any/all other suspension components, including: a-arms; control arms; trailing arms; bushings, bushing limiters, and bushing stiffening devices not covered elsewhere in this section.

This will cover replacing any/all suspension bushings with hardened rubber, polyurethane, delrin, spherical bearings, etc.

I'm a Little late to the table on this one ..

That kinda sucks for me as 90% of the bushings on my car are Fubar and any "OEM" replacements are slim to none leaving me with the only option of "energy suspension" as replacements and as a result bumping me into the next class :/

Midas well pull the trigger on making hte ol'goat a proper track car i guess ...

Room for one more in T1 Kyle? XD
