I am trying to set up the droop on the hudy station and have ran into a slight problem. The a-arms have a slight bulge under the c-hub portion. This "bulge" will not allow me to get an accurate reading. So I placed the droop gauge perpindicular to the a-arm and set it up accordingly. Will this get me an accurate reading?? Thanks!

Yes that works fine. All that matters is the height, not the orientation of the gauge.

That's what I thought, just confirming. This thread has helped me tremendously.

hey guys, no need to reply to this post, just wanted to get the word out here and set the record straight as xray doesn't reply to my emails and hasn't corrected their web site.

on barry bakers race report from the on road paved nats. he has it that i finished second in masters using the T2 007, that is incorrect, i ran the shouie Mi3.

hey korey, have you repainted that body you used at nats, i suggest leaving the picture of a target off the rear bumper next time.

See, now if you had a 007 you would have won instead of getting beat by an FK05 !

why do some guys not use the foam or the o-ring in their shocks? I have seen it on a few set-up sheets. What's the purpose?

I'm pretty sure most people never run an oring on the shaft. Usually that goes outside the body and acts as a travel limiter. The foam in the top of the shock just gives the shock a little bit more rebound sometimes... or it rebounds faster. Most of the time I run them, unless traction is really low, it will help produce a little more traction.

If it helps produce a little more traction, why would you not use them when traction is low?

I think he means by not running them it helps produce more traction on low traction surfaces...

Ignore what I posted, I had no idea what was this led all about, if the manual says you need it then you do. Sorry about the confusion.
