If anyone has any red hubs or shaft holders I'm interested
They're orange he has a Web Special

Ask Steve at Speedtech and I'm sure he'll be able to help you out

I race in Ayr but during the summer I occasionaly go south to race at Carlisle. It's a nice permanent track with grass infields to stop corner cutting and slow cars down safely.
The main race there each year is their round of the SMTCA championship, which has Mod class and 19spec class.
This year they also held a one off event, running the track in reverse with 19spec and 27stock classes.
They'll be racing indoors now it's winter so it's not worth the journey.

Not sure if KO has any or not. Ask him.

It wasn't too bad since the car was nice and stable, just had to think twice when applying "brakes" Luckily with the new chassis brakes weren't needed too much, the way the car now turns in without spinning into the wall was quite amazing at times.

I was using it because my main speedo is in for repairs and I've been borrowing one for the last two weeks, but that had to go back to the owner. Don't know what I'll do with the LRP now, maybe it'll make a good paper weight
I run a oneway on carpet but need a diff, it will be faster, I think. Car handles great with a one way and it's fast in the corners.

Thanks for the fast answer. I am thinking of trying this car out. I have been running a Mission since it came out and this looks like a sweet ride. I hope SpeedTech gets some more in soon!

Our indoors isn't quite carpet racing it's wooden gym floors, where you're sliding around on a layer of dust So grip is minimal, making things interesting the handbrake style of braking from a one way is not what you want

LOL, people quickly get peeved if you send them spinning, which is easily done on wood, and road rail isn't likely to help you slow down, apart from when it rolls you onto your roof

i dont get how it will prevent the cup from sliding out

the o-rings acts like a spacer... it limits how far out the cups slide in and out. As soon as the o-rings touch the axles...that's all it's going to come out.

The clear ones in the kit are for the shocks, the black ones are for the outdrives of the one way, like the black o-rings use in the dirve cup on the PAL/Xenon drive system.
