Correct, a 0 droop measurement is where the set screw boss is lyin on the 0 degree mark on the gauge which is level with the chassis. The chassis is 0 on the gauge.

thanks for all the advice on droop. I finally set my droop according to the settings listed in the manual and wow was I off! (I was running around 8 mm of droop in the rear!) Hopefully this will help me clear up some issues with the traction rolling I was having.

As for the CVDs, how many times have you guys taken them somewhat apart to relube them? I noticed that one of my CVDs was causing the wheel to flop around ever so slightly and I took it apart, relubed it and it is working fine now. Anyone else have this issue and if so how often should I tear down the CVD to relube it? Is anyone running CVD boots? I am thinking of getting these.

Well, better get to sleep, gonna go up to the shop for 9am to get some more practice time in before the race which begins at 12.


Oh, one more thing, I noticed my foam tires had some slight tears in them probably from catching a board or hitting someone else. Do you guys do anything to patch up the tear , I don't mean a complete chunk is missing but a tear has formed sort of like peeling a banana.


thanks!

one more thing, how much better are titanium screws than the stock ones? my main issue is I want them to be less prone to stripping (i haven't had a problem with that recently since I now use ball drivers, but you never know). Also, does the titanium screws include the droop screws? How much weight will I save?

is weight really an issue? i know guys that run stainless steel screws and can still get their cars under weight, and that would be a stronger car. but i would guess you could save .5 - 1oz.

Trinity has some part # TK3076 they work great and are low profile. I would think that Horizon would have these. Try doing a search with this part number.

Dynamite = GPM which is not widely known as one of the higher quality alum parts makers. Many people complain about parts not having holes in the right places, tolerances being different between two, supposedly, identical parts, etc. I haven't had any negative experinces with the personally, but I have run into many who have.
