Agreed, powder coating needs to be improved. Mine are coming off late spring to be Powdercoated as all the joints and spars are peeling.

Would the chamfered ones be wider than the radius ones, I think they need to be a little wider to stop car park dinks, and help keep the car away from steep edges of tracks.
Hope this makes sense.
Oh and would you do a straight swap. :mrgreen:

I have visions of D3's with fuel tankers bolted to the side.

I agree with Jason.

I like my uber narrow ones though. Just need to angle the tube down about 5° to stop the doors rubbing.

Nope the new ones do slightly angle down from memory to stop the problem. Its only a fraction tbh. But when the mud builds up it rubs more.

Re: powder coating..... In fairness the prospeed ones that spent a couple of weeks in my garage seemed to be suffering similar problems :o
