Thought the RDX guys might want to see this also...


Eli Ezrow and Brian McGreevy in the A Main at the 2006 Summer Sizzler. Eli ran pretty much a flawless race after he jumped out in the lead in turn 1. Good racing from him and Brian.

If you want to see the Driver's Stand "Gun Show" of Brian just head over to the Hurricane Motorsports thread LOL Sorry Brian couldn't resist :P

Schumacher Pitspace - Look under 'Event' - 'Summer Sizzler'

I would like to personally welcome BRAD JOHNSON to the Corally Team. He wanted the next level. I think this season should be seriously interesting with Brad added to the team. The 2006/2007 indoor season should not stop where the 2005/2006 season left off.

Jeff

Yes i agree jeff


The corally team may do some "murdering" on the rug this indoor season. You guys have assembled quite a nice team, in both mod and stock.

again, congrats to 1fastdude on the win. flawless, as usual.

shouldn't there be some kind of cap on how many top racers a team can have? you guys are making this difficult.

harbuckle - yeah. dead on what i've noticed about the narrow front on our cars too. the inconsistent dipping of the front. stiffen it up, and yup, it just gets hard to drive.

How often (if ever) do you guys go through the car and replace all the ball cups? Mine are a year and a half old now, and starting to feel a little sloppy.

Are you using the stock ones? Mine came out of the box feeling sloppy. I have the ball grippas now and I cant imagine them every feeling sloppy but I guess they could. Guess it depends on how often you pop them off and stretch them out.

Sorry I realize now I didnt answer your question at all but I dont know

Oh, they never pop off. I'm using the stock ones though. I ran the RPM's for a while, but went back to stock.

Hey Syn -!

Mine's almost 2 years old now and am doing mine right now. But if the cups are still in decent shape, and you don't have a problem with 'em popping off, try putting a piece of teflon plumbing tape on the ball, then pop the cup back on...!

Works like a charm -- no more slop!

I just grab the little plastic baggie the parts come in, put a layer of that over the ball stud, and snap the ball cup over it. It cuts out this little circle that takes up most of the slop out of the ball cups. Schumacher makes some pretty killer ball cups too. I have rpm's on mine at the moment... I dont really like them though.

I have the RPM's atm too, and don't care for them too much either. I also found that the stock cups start out with play. Do the Ball Grippas require thier own sized ball studs, or will the ball grippas fit the stock ball studs? I would hate to order just the cups only to find out they were smaller/larger than the stock corally ball studs.

They fit the stock ball studs. I think they are great. Only problem I have is that they are so tight fitting it is sometimes difficult to get them back off.
