Not a hater! Just that when ppl post things that are just a little on the stretched side I WILL call them on it!

Oh I don't Monitor this thread it was sent to me in an e-mail!

I never doubt Justins car as being one of the fastest at that track...I knew he was gonna hit 25 laps. I even called some of the other locals to check on him to see if he got it Saturday. There are about 6 ppl knocking on the door of 25 laps at this track someone was bound to do it. I think all of us at one point have turned either a 5:01 or even 5:00's.

Justin if you think the track was SO MUCH faster at the eXpress race why are our times the same 4 months later???? I was just trying to get you to see that if Cuffs, X-man or Hartman (who all turned the 25 laps the first time at the track) all had been running this track for the 4 months you have every weekend, I am sure they would all be knocking on 26 laps door.

Congrats on the win and the 25 lap run!

U3026 is the pin and set screw kit for the Alloy CVD's. If you broke one shoot me an email or call Schumacher.
Thanks Adrian, One question though. Is it possible to replace the pin that holds the blade on? I was under the impression that it was "FIXED" in there. My pin broke on both sides, so i'm going to have to stick something in there to get it out IF it is at all possible to remove the remaining piece.

BTW: If you guys can, ship a few of those pin kits over to Fast Track if you havent already. Apparently we will be needing 'em.

I would expect that pin to be fairly tight in there, but if you have access to the correct equipment it should be possible to punch/press it out and replace.

I'll see what happens when i get home. My issue is going to be the the pin is broken off on both sides. Which means that i most likely will damage the cvd even if i do manage to get it out.

Like i told Joel, The upside of buying a new cvd will be that i will have a backup one in case something happens again either way. ;-)

How long will you be in Chicago? There really isnt any good shops in Chicago most are about 35 minutes to an hour outside of the city. Its the same thing for Tracks all tracks are about an hour to an hour and a half from the city depending on where you are at in the city. Tell me when you are going to be in the city and I might be able to pick you up and take you to one of the shops that are really nice just not close to the city or even to one of the tracks.

Hi all.

What difference does using the T2 hub carriers make to the handling, and what is the difference between them and the kit item?

Also, I notice people have been using the Euro's setup, but in what weather conditions?

Thanks
Skiddins

The T2 blocks are only being tested with foam tires/carpet. We don't recommend this change for Rubber tire racing.

The Euro's setup has been working very good in most conditions outdoor with medium bite. Here in Florida it's been warm & cool with medium traction and the same setup worked perfect

Have you tried running your white spring set up on the EC yet? That set up was killer. Too bad I didn't have the for the Reedy race
