But if we only adjusted the RR inserts it still limits what track you can achieve at each toe setting.
But if they did make the inserts they'd fit both blocks anyway

Reflex use Spec-R's on their conversion, so I think persuading the Hudy's that it's another useful tuning tool is the way to get them made

Default Aluminum Chassis

Xray just announced an aluminum chassis for the '14, after seeing serpent and Awesomatix with their own I guess this is the direction TC is going.

Interesting.

But bearing in mind the indoor season will be over in 2-3 months:
isn't it quite useless for outdoor asphalt tracks

Aluminum chassis seem like a great idea to keep weight as low as possible. That is until they bend and you cant de-tweek it.

I don't think it will be too much of a difference to be honest. Having used the Xray stiffeneres a few times (1.5 or 1.6mm thick) on a couple of high grip tracks, I can definately recommend these. Actually there wasn't a single track on which I didn't have them installed because they just always worked for me.

David

The roche have more cutouts, I think. They might be flexier for the same thickness than the xray.
