I always run it at the maximum possible, until the tires don't turn anymore.
It shouldn't slow your car on the chicanes unless you have excessive front traction and you are turning the wheel all the way....

Guys, do you run the thick spacer shim on the front outdrives for OS2 or do you prefer to use multiple thin shims?

How much space there is for the bearings? I'm thinking about putting these into my Mugen?

Default 966 takes FORGASS race at Ft. Myers

DJ Apolaro takes 8th scale at the FORGASS race. A lot of top gun drivers were present for this race but in the end, Apolaro & 966 cruised to a dominant victory.

BS, I ran the CSO front CVD's in our 966 and 733 for the entire season and they held up awesome at half the price.

Why would one chinese company (CSO) not be able to produce the same quality as another chinese company (Serpent) ?

That's good to hear. I have not seen the front's listed anywhere though, only the rear's.

Will need to swap out my front's as one has a little tweek in it and wobbles when spinning. I don't know how it happened as I have not crashed it, very odd. CSO finish looks good and I have noticed a lot of people running their pulleys, even the top drivers. Good price also.
