Steve, I found this picture of Montgomery's car. The front pivot block is not the factory piece. I wonder what toe-in, squat, and width this block has?



Tirewise it looks as if everyone is running 7202's. I cannot tell compound from the pictures. Check out this thread. http://www.mini-zone.com/forum/viewt...t=869&start=30

Oh really? BK took me out at the Twister Offoad Challenge for a heat race win. I honestly expected more from him, maybe a clean pass or something besides a front tire tucked under my wing

I think this is the same pivot block but it's dremmeled down to make room for the weight everybody has been running in the rear lately....

I'm not positive though....

The pic on the Orion site shows a BK tranny, black case, BK2 is a grey tranny case.

This raises the CG in the rear.....

Trackdesigner....That wasn't even arrogant. I see that ALL the time in the onroad forum. People wanting their native drivers to do well and when they do they do a lot "worse" than what you do...LOL. Nothing wrong with National pride. When Craig won the Reedy race I feel every and any european had the right to come on here and celebrate

Lickrim Tired of your darn attitude dude. I'd expect more from a factory driver....

I am pretty sure just about everyone has taken out someone on their way to winning a Championship at one time or another! BK included.

They were saying in Orion's coverage that the track was really starting to come in in spots. I know that the section in front of the camera was starting to develop a pretty nice groove. There were a lot of cars skating off line in that area and I even saw a couple pileups there during qualifying (at least the part of qualifying that I was able to watch). It'll be interesting to see if traction gets better during that last round.
