Seriously 0.005" out... That's like the thickness of a piece of photocopy paper... Better keep it in low range or the vibe will throw you outta the seat...

Idk. Maybe debris getting thrown from rear tires. The pass side has the fast fill fuel tube so maybe something to do with that.

I'd throw those driveshafts out and start over. .005" over 30" is unacceptable I think the rear panels look good Greg.

Will you have your stickers in time for the race, or will it be white?

Those panels would look cool with your number laser cut in them and back lit.
