Rod is right.....the 007 just keeps getting better as the setups become more refined. A big thanks to Greg Mills also......the setup helped me win 19turn Touring and helped me get my first win in Modified Touring for the WCICS series.

Are the front caster blocks and rear hubs different from the T2 and the T2'007?


Looking to get 6 deg composite front caster blocks and the aluminum 1 deg rear hubs...

Nope. They're the same.

Just know that will decrease rear traction comapred to the front having alum in the back and composite in the front.

I cant see how switching from composite to aluminum on a hub or knuckle can make a difference especially in lap times or handling. Hell i couldnt even notice a difference by putting the center one-way in mine and that's a 60 dollar part. O well..

Just finished changing almost all buttonhead and flathead screws to titanium on my 007 US. I shaved off ~22g for 50 bucks seems like a steal of a deal
I did not change the ones in the bumper (would decrease the weight maybe an other 2g )

cvt, you can probably save 15g of unsprung and rotating mass by truing your tires down to 54mm.

What brand and where did you buy your titanium screws? I'm using T2'007 EU Edition.
I'm thinking of changing all my screws to titanium as I have change all the composite parts to aluminum...guess that would help me some on decreasing my weight.
Thanks in advance!

i'd like to know if inboard and outboard toe are added to equal complete toe on the setup stations. ex:1 degree inboard + 1 degree = 2 degrees on toe gauge, is this correct?

I normally true them down to 58mm. 54mm pretty much makes them one run tire...
