Aluminum center drums

im wondering where people are sourcing aluminum center drums from. I picked up a 9 car and it came with thing drums and a bunch of lightened type 3's but no backing plates for them. I'd just prefer to have the aluminum centered parts ready to go rather than search for good German stuff. Thanks.

I believe Bill Shapley can point you in the right direction for those. Matt Creveling might know as well.

I have been using them with no issues. Have replaced the centers once since I switched. Long run I have saved money and headaches

AND switch to 1200cc motors- that'll further avoid DNFs and differentiate the class from the 1600s.

Funny thing is, there was a point in time when Class 9 definitely competed for overalls and was the biggest class out there...When it was a 1200cc class. Same with class 10 when it was a 1650cc class.

Just don't charge anything with a single barrel carb for the same insurance that something with an 8 stack pays.
