Now that makes sense too

All we need now is some manufacturer jumping in and making a soldering aid/wire cooler/noisekiller combo wire clamp and selling it to us for 10 times its cost.

Of course, we'll still buy it...

Hey Jake, next time if you need a pair of pilers just let me know

Well I did cme across some posts on Team orion's forum that the V2's tab gets so hot that the solder will melt.

That happeed to a guy I was racing against at SoCal. He had a V2 endbell on a Monster and it came unsoldered during the race...car just stopped. I don't know if he soldered it very well or not, but it looked like he was pretty competent.

I geared it at 9.56 on my pro4 with 7x1 V2.

Is anybody tested with this same setup?

Default Bearings

Has anyone tried aftermarket bearings? (i.e. Acer or www.vxb.com)

I just put a set from VXB in my car....they are very nice. They come with a heavy grease in the bearings so you will need to soak them in some motor spray to get most of that out but they are very good for the price.
