The Ver 2 CVDs have different characteristics over the MIP CVDs in regards the traction which is why Andy and Team HB use them on the rear of the car. The benefits of traction are lost on the front though because of the excess chatter that the Ver 2 CVDs have over the new MIP CVDs.

My suggestion to everyone would be to keep 1 set of MIP CVDs to use as a spare for your fronts, and use the Ver 2 CVDs so you can optimize your pace.

quick question regarding the layshaft.

do you guys use any shims in it to center the pulleys more?
how much side to side play should there be in the layshaft when the pullys and spur are on?
how do you guys set yours up?

Chris,

Put everything on the layshaft but don't fully tighten the grub screws, just have it so the pulleys and spur can slide on the flat spots. Then put the layshaft in as you would run it but without the belts on. If your running a 1way pulley then use the spur mount to push it over to the left and tighten the grub screw. Then move the fixed pulley to the right and tighten the grub screw, ensuring you leave a very small ammount of play. Its also best to have the layshaft as central as possible.

Stephen,

Tighten the servo saver down to the ammount stated in the manual, any more and the assembley will be under too much stress and as a result could break in an accident.

Hope this helps,

Phil.

If you break your servo saver and do not have a spare try this:

Assuming you have some pro4 parts...

Take your broken servo saver and put the long plastic steering spacer from a pro4 up into the servo saver aluminum piece. Remove the servo saver spring and run the saver nut up and tighten it down good. Take a second nut and run it up to back the first nut.

You wont have a servo saver, but you will still be able to race. I guess you could do this and use a saver on the servo itself.

I use shims to take out the space between the pulley's... (1.5mm x 4mm shims - I think ), but this still should provide a little end-float.

I use shims on my layshaft as well.


Anyone tried using the WCE spool drive cups on a TIR spool center section?

Thanks.
I think it might increase initial steer before corners.
