    Mine are shouldered, I made sleeves, there is no weight on the back of these cars so sleeving them would be fine, the car ran for years with no problem using them anyway.

    The P700 is NOT asymmetric and therefore only dips up and down, it does not dip to the left. It is also not period correct for a Cobra. I would say that this is almost certain to cause dazzling to...
