    I'm thinkin' that you are gonna need all the front end weight you can get to keep the nose on the ground once those D/R start biting !!

    You do realize the RS set up weighs more than the standard bumper...right?
    Hence the reason why all the period race cars didn't run the RS nose...

    The nose piece is much heavier then it looks.

    Had a guy on Facebook arguing with me on the subject.

    He posted a '70 standard front car with split bumpers and was talking about how split bumpers only came in 1970.5 and how rare they are, etc.

    Ignorance is bliss I guess, makes you wonder who started that rumor/falsity.

    I get this all the time...."There's no way your car is a 70, it don't have split bumpers." :mad: :mad: It takes all kinds.......
