I have that similar clicking noise also, but haven't had a chance to check it out, I thought it was the pin in the universal rubbing, but doesn't look like it.

Yeah, If you don't have the CVD pin centered in the CVD, it will also click on the screws on the spindle. I had one work loose and do that.

I don't have a car here, so I can't check...
Ray....just like Troy said is what it might be. I had the same issue and thats what I traced it back to. Check it out and see if thats whats going on.

kevin, troy, et all,

Thanks-that makes perfect sense as it is a falling and then tick sound when rotating the axles. I might put a very thin materail in there to take up the space so they dont tick-the sound drives me nuts!!

Default Wide bumper?

hi there,
why do you need a wide bumper for carpet racing?

like the pics posted with the brp and rpm bumper for the tc3.

Thanks!

Its mainly because most carpet tracks use boards to mark the lanes and they are very hard on cars.....so a little extra protection is needed at times. It helps with breaking front arms and other parts. Ive broken my car two times once was a front arm and the other time was a castor block and steering knuckle.....would a extra bumper like others have put on their cars helped??? Maybe I dont know I dont have on on my car.....but might soon.

i wouldn't use it my self.

as it sticks out to the edge of the foam bumper so that cannot compress when you hit the board/pipe etc so it is just going to send a nasty shock down your car, not sure what it will do but you know what i mean

so if you dont use it it will allow ytour foam bumper to compress softening the impact.

just my thoughts
