I run on Asphalt 99% of the time, so yes. I don't think it really matters on which surface you race on, you will probably use the same body positions.

Was wondering if others have had issues with the screw to hold the t4's hubs not tightening? It isn't even stripped as it doesn't seem to grab in the first place. Seems like all the hubs screw holes were machined too large.

Is it overcome using different screws or a different set of hubs?

I thought I read it within this thread but can no longer find it in a search.

If you are referring to the aluminium hex, then yes different screws usually fixes the issue.

I tried searching this thread but couldn't find any info.

Kit went together fine however I have one shock bladder that is deformed and I can't finish the kit until I get a new one.

Anyone of you fellas have Paul's (is this the correct gentlemen?) contact info to see about a replacement?

I looked over the Hudy setup book and im still confused, when you move the inner hinge pins away from the chassis, is this lowering or raising the roll center ? ....... which is better on a high bite asphalt track ? ...... thanks for any help

Moving the pin away from the chassis raises the roll center. You're better to lower the roll center in high grip situations.

Couple of guys at my local track spent a few days testing the ALU chassis on carpet. Our top guy is a consistent A-mainer at Roar and national events and even won in 2012.

He went faster with his ALU chassis and said it was easier to drive. He's gonna keep using it, I believe.

Good to know.
Just bit the bullet on one.
I race a very smooth, med - high grip indoor ashfelt track.
I know they say it was designed for carpet, but I think it will work well on our track.

LTC-R: 77mm
GX: 74.5mm (this is the same as Alex)
Speed 6: 72.5mm

Thanks for that Antoni, could you please tell me which hole you have the front and rear support pins in? The o-rings are a good idea. I use a bit of thin foam tape in different layers but the orings are a nicer solution for sure.
