I know Clint well enough. We're just giving him a hard time and joking with him. Not being serious.

Cool lots of laughs but man he got some mean motor

So hey John Kerr what did you think of the alloy rear hubs for asphalt on the Mi2??? i will be using them first time out a 3 degrees, just to make sure the rear isn't prone to sliding. What are some tricks you recommend with them???

I liked the alloy rear hubs on the Mi2. Just make sure they're centered on the insert and to use blue locktite on the set screw. They like to come out if you don't. One thing that we did with them was glue the insert into the hub and cut off the excess plastic. Then use shims to center it. This was a little more accurate then trying to measure it out and center it. I always liked it best with the alloy rear hubs with the 0 block in it and the alloy pivot blocks. This gives 2 rear toe. Just enough to keep the rear end free but not too free through the corners.

Also you will want to space the rear shock tower back about 2mm. If you don't, the vertical mounting of the outer ball stud on the hub carrier pulls the link back and gives it a funky angle. Space it back far enough to make the camber link pretty much parallel with the CVD. 2mm should be about right.

I actually tried one last week and it was pretty good. The belt is shorter and doesn't need the tensioner
