Suzuki,

Nice work as you pulled out your inner McGyver. Not sure if you got my PM, but just incase a friend of mine said that loctite 410 works amazing in fixing broken CF parts.
Good luck at your races brother.

Thanks for the tips Norse, I did get your PM and it helped lead to the repair pictured above. Hopefully it holds up at the track tomorrow (last race of the indoor season) as the replacement is about a week out yet.

Can anyone tell me if a 35T pinion will fit with the 78T optional spur or am I going to have to modify a smaller spur to get similar FDR and not be able to use the centre diff when running 17.5T Stock?

What are you guys using for chassis protection? Does anyone make '15 specific protective chassis sheet?

I've tested 100k, 300k and 500k and so far the 500 works the best for me on a tight, low/med traction track. Running saddle packs as well.

AE chassis protective sheets for B44. They have to be cut to fit, but after the first one you'll have a template for more.
