Hi Bob,


You know, just before your post in this thread I was lamenting my NOT running this car with in the R&C event. Not "officially" but just for grins to see what kind of time it would turn. :unknw:


Anyway........you wrote:



I don't think those chassis ever came with formed (coined?) 3/16th guide tongue.


Yeah, I don't know Bob. The freedom to use what works best at the time is why I love "Hop Ups" as opposed to "restorations". :crazy:



Am I missing something - the ad copy says 5 pole?


RAM could have used you to check their ads before publishing Bob. :D I just opened up two boxed RAM-Boochie's and the arms are 7-pole like the one in the picture, not 5-pole like the text in the ad suggests.
