I just figured you'd find it going off the date. I didn't think about my name.... This set up is really stable yet fast. Best my car has ever felt at my home track

Ahem... Thank you. Thank you. *bows*

In all seriousness, its a setup worth trying. It's just a solid setup that seems to work as a good starting point just about everywhere I go.

Default Front Axles Breaking

I have broken 3 right front aluminum drive shafts. I switched to the aluminum CVD's and last night The CVD broke where the pin attaches it to the axle. I have turned the EPA way down but this seems to be happening when any contact is made with the barriers. Is there a cure other than not touching a barrier? The contact last night was not hard contact.

Have you tried the DCJ Shafts? I have had some pretty big hits and have not broken one.. bit expensive but they seem very strong..

Cheers

DCJ's are expensive, but in hindsight they would have been worth it.

Are the DCJ's stronger and more durable?

Hotbodies do make a black steel drive shaft for the front. they are around $15USD for a pair. much stronger than the alloy shafts

I use Much More Joint lube. It's like a super thick oil with a needle applicator. Works good!

Korey, have you stocked up on "Tan in a can"? You said you were going to rock that deep burnished "orange" that only tan in a can can produce. It's also supposed to protect you from those bright sunny California days you are not used to...

i like using the Hb anit-ware grease that comes with the spool, seems to last a long time and works good. one other thing i did was heat shrink my dcjs so no dirt or dust gets in there.
