Probably sometime in the next couple weeks. Would you rather go up for racing or practice? I'm thinking a practice day because we'll be able to get more track time in and try different things so you can get a good feel for the car.

I'd go for practice if they usually dont get a good turnout for pro mod/mod, but if they do, I'd rather go up to race.

Here's another pic of the progress, I need to get some lunsford turnbuckles and it'll be pretty much set as far as parts go.

I think a practice day will be best. You want to plan on next Saturday?

good luck guys at the worlds. I have been thinking of drilling new holes in my rear tower to have the body mounts in the regular position.

If you notice, it also has a plug up front so the transponder can unplug. I have it glued into the front bumper so it's right at the front of the car for close battles like we see too often at SoCal.

Theres no chance of you getting a weekday off if we were to go up for a practice day is there?

I haven't personally ever seen any of the Steel MIP CVD's bend. This is the main reason they are used in the gas car as they were the strongest driveshaft they could find.

A coupld of things that might be worth thinking about though. Try running a little less steering lock. Personally i actually have a 1- 1.5mm spacter glued onto the hub to ensure a little less lock. This will put less side load on the CVD. ALso it is worth ensuring that they are free moving all the way through the pivoting. Can't see how this would be a problem, but you never know I guess.

Can't think of any other reason. I have used Titanium and Plastic (both weker than steel) and had no problems at all.
Yup, its the bone thats bending. I have my dual rate at 25% less than full lock to keep my self form using full lock and then hitting a board which is usually what causes stuff to break.
