CBR(Churchboysracing) is a better choice.The FR rack must be used with a stock front sump pan.I looked into this when it came out and decided the CBR rack was the best way to go for my car.

I've had this kit in my garage now for about a year and a half. I still haven't heard if anyone has ever used it or not, and if it actually works well...

I've been researching the steering issues and looking at the systems available for about 8 months. Will be on the to do list pretty soon. I've heard that the Flaming River setup has some issues with ground clearance and exhaust interference on the drivers side. I did talk to a rep at a show last year and he told me they may come up with a custom manifold to alleviate the problem. If you're running a custom exhaust, who knows about the fit? I would check these issues out before you get too far into it. Even though I don't like modifying the original structure any more than necessary, it looks like the Church Boys setup might be the way to go.
