Can anyone comment on the performance/longevity of the Spec-R spring steel spool cups? It doesn't look like they use blades.

Do the roche spool cups use blades?

Also, what's the theory behind having the spool cups offset 90* from each other (like the new Nikitas)? In my head it seems like that would be bad, because you'd have one axle trying to go fast while the other is going slow, making kind of a walking effect, putting more twist into the front driveline and possibly shocking the tires more. Whereas if they're aligned, both sides would be doing the same thing and the spool and front belt could soak up the accel/decel effect.

I don't know what there thoughts are for doing it but I would assume it would eliminate some vibrations in the shafts. Similar to how you offset the universal joints in a driveshaft of a real car.

Anyone have any thoughts on the RSD bladders and pistons compared to the stock Xray stuff?

I'm using the Spec-R spring steel spool cups. I think they're fantastic. Absolute quality product and you don't need to use blades.

Be sure to shrink tube and black grease your "pin on steel" drive cups (specR Roche ect.). They run way smoother and last for ever. I've never even notched one after using this method in spec or mod.

Some drivers seem to focus on corner enter speed and some (including myself) focus on exit corner speed. I know it is a combination of both.
My question is which is the most focus?
Everyone feels that they have the speed going into a corner because they are at the peek speed. So I think sometimes it is overlooked. Maybe the approach is what carries the full corner speed.
Any comments?

For stock racing I think it's all about limiting the time spent not on power. I focus more on getting on the power earlier and smoother, so as not to upset the car, rather than how hard I can dive down into the corner. So if that means braking earlier than the next guy, in a quali I'll do it. Heads up racing for position obviously changes things a bit, but I digress.

This is what separates the have's from the have nots..

I am personally am a have not and i take more of a slow in fast out approach. I feel you lose more time by overdriving the car than you do by underdriving the car..

Yep I have been in that same mind set for a very long time. Lately I have been thinking maybe I have been thinking about it the wrong way. Maybe it is all about the approach that sets up for the faster corner speed?
