KO:
Just wanted to tell you that a lot of people are going to be out of town next Saturday for the race including the track owner and the race director...someone will have to come and open the gate for a race or practice. I don't know if I'll go but if you guys are committed to come and practice, I'll be there. I guess they are changing the schedule around (again) this weekend. The dates on our board are wrong so don't go by them. I'll keep ya posted.

just depends on what type of racing you do... for me I have one with the Square / Xenon hubs and all of the rest have the PAL hubs

-Dave
- how about for modified racing on a bumpy, sometimes dusty asphalt? (makes it slippery) what do you recommend? the stock hubs or the PAL ones?

Long Span a-arms with the 7 deg Xenon front hub for mod with a bumpy dusty track... or mid span and PAL hubs for mod with a hight bite track

dry type- little to no grease( hence the word dry in the name)

Standard...a higher grade normal bearing..but without the normal bearing grease..squats special grease)

i assume that when you use the mid span arms and pal hubs, you also use the new pal camber link positions, so that the roll center remains the same? is this correct?

did you recommend the 7 degree front c-hub for its ability to soak up the bumps (like kick-up) or for its ability to have lesser exit steering?

thanks again.

Yes when you use the PAL hubs you "MUST USE" the upper camber link mounts with them or you will be shooting your self in the foot..

and yes for the 7 deg hub for both ...in speed and bumps...but more towards the car turning in quick with the mod motor..
