Mine was a ROCKET! I would give anything to be able to run somewhere where I could use them.

We are going to find out in about a month and a half. Last years leaf car was real good on them and I expect the new FR1 ought to be better.

Thanks for the reply's. How often did you guys have to change leafs to keep the suspension close to 100%?

Never changed the stack. Changed the mono after 5 or 6 races.

I agree with orange2mod; still using last year's stack; change mono every 5 race nights or so.

I would check with Randy at racemart. i ran the FR-1 on Hoosiers and the stack seemed to hold up well, and the mono seemed to work well for 8 nights or more.

I ran the St. Louis stack, so I really dont know how the AFCO stack would fare as far as durability.

The guys that run the AFCO's on IMCA tires say they hold a long time also.

The key to making this work I am told is to run the nova lowers on the front.
good luck

Thanks guys, I sent an email yesterday and you are correct. You have to run the nova lowers with the Hoosiers. It sticks the back harder and it overcomes the stock metric front suspension. The only problem with the Afco Leaf is you have to add more arch after you buy it and you also have to slide the stack forward. This is already built in to our newer RMT-90 (St. Louis) stack leaf.
