      Got a ride in Nate's stage 2-ish A3 at Sonoma last weekend. It pulls really hard all the way down the straight.

      They went in Summer 2010. I already had the insert for about a year prior.

      I replaced the two sets of side mount polys in Summer 2012. They were collapsing a little. Actually tried Delrins...
