Just to be clear, is it an expense to repair issue or rather that the CF tower is less likely to be damaged, from what you saw?

Thanks for that, it will still work, I'll just have to be careful how I sequence the fitment of the wheels. But I'll rather go with Rad or the RFR option, all things being equal.

I'm actually faster since I went over to a 300 2T. But its mostly because I forget to brake for corners. At least I'm finally carrying some corner speed.
