I'm surprised to hear they're backing out, mine are generally so tight they're hard to turn at all. Is there some chance you're using the wrong screw or something? It doesn't seem possible for them to back out on their own under normal circumstances.

They are the only 4 set screws that could work in there. They are approx. 1/2" - 3/4" long set screws. They thread in with almost no effort.

I had one set screw that was loose while the other three were very tight. I now use the torx screw that is used to mount the shocks to the shock tower. Very easy to adjust droop and no fear of the stripping.

Hi guys. I'm wondering if maybe a bad batch of the 35 "new" arms for the rear got released a while back. I bought one of the original packages that was slightly too small, and those four arms lasted me about 6 months. Then, when I got into the new bags, I broke 8 arms in 3 race nights. After I ran out, I went back to the "old" 75 arms in the rear and haven't had a problem since. I don't know if anybody else has had trouble, but it just seems like too many breaks to be a coincidence. It was tiny, minor things that caused them to break, like rubbing a flapper. I had at least one break without contact, though I suppose it could have been cracked.

Hello all,

I ran my car this past weekend at an asphalt track that had excellent traction. However, anytime the car made a turned (even slightly turned) the wheels screeched. I assumed this was because I had too much traction (as was apparent by the wear hole on my front left tire and premature wear on my right tire after only 1 and 1/2 runs). The car also had somewhat of a push that I also felt was taking away corner speed.

I'm not sure how to correct this problem so that the car isn't eating up a set of tires in 1 or 2 runs and pushing in the turns.

I'm running Jeff Brown's setup from the 06 Roar Asphalt Nats that was held at Speedworld Race Way.

Should I just try a completely different set-up? Any suggestions?

Much Thanx

i always had to run a crazy soft setup on mine to get it to turn and to be easy on the tires. i always thought they screeched because they didnt have enough bite so the car stopped rolling and just slid on the tires. well anyway, i ran 14 lbs. in the front and 12 lbs. in the rear with 6 mm ride height and 3.5 mm over ride height for droop. i ran the large pistons with 35 wt trinity oil frnt and rear. mind you this was with a 8X1 trinity shock.
