just adds to the flavor of the man pile.......


So who's going where for races?

nationals, grand slams, Horsham, Snowbirds, , , , , , ?

Looking to start man-piles for each race, sign up now, space is........ limited.


We have our track in Mass., Madness firing up soon in Ct., and Horsham is within striking distance. Let us know if you are hitting those areas, the Farm Team travels to race.

To reduce chatter with stock parts, whats the best orientation for the spool outdrives, and "cvds" (as there are 2 pin choices w/cvds and 2 w/spool)

Just take the CVD's apart, grease em' up. Take your spool outdrives and make them opposites, So one slot will be facing horizontal, and one vertical. On the track my car doesnt chatter. In the air it does. But I cant hear it on the track

I've been running Titanium Racing stuff for a long time - spool and driveshafts since Mi2! Now running the new stealth driveshaft and the layshaft as well.

Front end has less chatter, and more steering!

Are you running both dogbone and pins the same (ie both horizontal) or dogbone 90 of the pin. I understand your statement about the spool (90 difference)

My CVDs came assembled opposite. One is parallel, and the other came assembled @ 90. Maybe Ill just play with it... Right now it chatters much more than my TC5 with TOP TC5 steel spool.

I'm running the cvd pins opposite the outdrives lol. I never really messed with the pins being in the same way. Never thought about it really.
