I am not a big fan of aluminum stuff...however, you guys can give me some idea how come I can break the RIGHT only C-hub 9 times within 3 months of using (probably raced 8 times)....? I am running rubber on carpet...and I have P-dub bumper on...I do crash, but nothing BIG...just some tapping and scratching...but most of the time, at the end of the race day, I will find out my bottom of the C-hub is cracked open...somehow the lower arm bracket DOES hold the broken C-hub in place and let me finish the race with the broken C-hub (that is a very smart and cool design from Schumacher)
At first...I thought I fixed the problem. 1 of the bearing inside the steering hub was jammed...it locked the right tire, and cause the STRESS all over the right steering...1 thing must break, and thats the C-hub...Fine, bearing changed....1 more run...cracked again. This time, released that the Titanium King pin was bent from the previous crash (broke the arm, bent the CVD and lower arm)...ok...changed the SILVER CVD, new arm, new C-HUB again, and new king pin.......1 more run. AGAIN....cracked lower C-hub...RIGHT side, AGAIN...
Everything is changed now on the RIGHT side...all new parts. But...I think it will be a cracked C-hub coming....can you guys give me idea WHAT ELSE I have to adjust..? I can only imagine my RIGHT turn end point to too FAR right...which I have already reset JUST RIGHT, no more and no less...but I did not encounter is...when the car is turn right, with the traction from the CARPET...that migth PUSH the steering knuckle MORE then what I have set and caused to PUSH against the C-hub and crack the C-hub...
Do you guys think that is possible...?
Sorry about the long post....$10 per C-hub x 9 is not cheap and fun for me....it is weird because i have ran the Mi2EC for like 2 years now...before this incident, all my C-hub, arm, steering are all collect dust in my part box...
