Yes, its saves c-hubs.

Adam I haven't tried. The DCJ's will be in next week.

As well as my regular c hubs BD-7 style

If it gets posted (I know there is video of the main) you have to watch the punishment the car went through. I saw X-rays broken.....no aluminum but still. I went through a sweeper and was trying to make it through a traffic accident. It was pretty brutal.

The quality of the special servo mount is really impressive.

Speaking of setup's are you a high bite carpet track? compared to IIC? If so I'm curious what you think of the stock setup cause I know you just switched carpets.

I ended up using one of the stock setup's on their and it's fairly good. If you are running on really high grip you need to loosen it up from that setup.

As for loosening it up.....I'm still working on that cause my usual track is a med track and the car works extremely well. I am gonna try to take a little toe out of the rear.

The kit setup is very good at my track. Low-medium bite. All I had to do is raise the inner rear ball stud 1mm and it was dialed!

I'd say our track is medium unless we're having a big race.

The traction at IIC was probably also medium, but in a very different way. The cars felt very floaty and disconnected. Some people and setups thrived more than others. I was not on the thriving side, personally.

I was thinking about trying Umino's carpet setup, though that was for high grip. Maybe I'll just start with the kit and go from there.

I'm running that setup minus three things. One mm shims on the inner tie rods, My rear shocks are at the 3rd hole, and different rear toe. I am going to work my way to that setup just testing and seeing how much if any of it makes a difference. I was off Larry's fast lap at the Gate but I could run laps to put me last in the A or in the B. Granted this was my 4-5th weekend ever running rubber carpet. My first full weekend with my Yokomo on carpet. I was pretty happy with what I could do with it. Very disappointed with my consistency and patience in traffic.
