Yokomo Cup...

My first big race event! lol

Was awesome! Never experienced such a race format!

High light of the day had to be watching the team drivers in action! Masami starting at the back of the grid... reeling them in one by one! He managed to catch the guy coming first but ran out of time to pass him due to a crash he had earlier! He is amazing to watch!

The whole time there, I didn't get a chance to have a good look at the new CGM on display! was busy trying to get used to the race scene!

Though Masami showed me his car and damn, his drive train spins soo freely! with the wheels on... spun for about 30 seconds!

How much is the difference in weight from stock? Really enough to make a difference? Though I like all the little aluminum parts...

I might pick up a pair of those, got the origional ones, but lighter is always better in the drivetrain's case.

Did Suzuki never mention about re-producing the other parts like the front knuckles???
Thanks.

I think usually there is only one batch of each Team Suzuki part.

I'm not too sure about those aluminum shaft holders...
Aluminum on aluminum contact = friction
for me..when I get my Pro4...will stay with the graphite version and lube it with some microlon.

I actually dont feel any friction between the shaft and holders, it isn't tight enough, still very free moving.

it's not aluminum on aluminum contact, the steel center pins on the shaft are what runs on the aluminum drive cups. Besides, it's not like there's any movement there anyway to cause any friction
