well i have had all three,and the cr is the fastest,mike truhe is running the cr with ea parts at worlds and he qualified 2nd.


but i have seen that before,at my track i have seen one guy does something weird and it works so everyone just goes to what that one guy was doing, even though in the long run it might not be faster. but who knows your trck surface might just need something like that.

There are three very different tracks around here and there are all sorts of combos out there...but hardly anyone runs a stock CR from what I see. I was just more or less trying to say that it's not clear at all that the CR is so superior.

Besides...the pro guys hardly ever crash, so the material they run isn't really going to be an issue. The guys I know swap all the EA3 stuff to (preferably old) graphite stuff because they say/think EA3 stuff is too fragile.

yes it is more fragile,i just don't have proplems with breaking parts

i see you point but most people would agree the cr is better than the bk1 or bk2

That's the thing..."most people" (at least from what I've seen/heard here in SoCal) don't agree at all. That's why they use all the old rear end stuff and replace most of the EA3 parts.

From what I've seen/heard, they use the "1" pivot and some other arms...I think the earlier ones. They use the CR tranny, but they change around the rear suspension geometry.
