Can you please verify the inner camber link spacing on Taka's set-up? I have the Surikarn Evo3. Thanks a lot!

Yup, the inner camber link spacing is correct. Sorry I forgot to mention it earlier today. It's F 7.5mm and R 3.5mm I'll test the setup once I get the parts. Please note that Taka's setup is for a high grip indoor asphault track and may not be suitable for parking lots or loose outdoor conditions.

cheers

16oz is Rockstar all the way you oughtta try it Rod. To me it tastes better than Red Bull

I am slow it's just everybody else is slower hahha.
Pete's been bragging how fast he is but when any lap times are printed he is magically slower I haven't figured it out yet???
He swears he was 1sec a lap faster in the quals hmmmmm

It should be fun this weekend Pete's always fun to hack.

I made the mod like Taka's to try out I am still hoping I'll have the Red version to work with this weekend.

Oh 2nd place IIno? Is that IIno from sales, fresh over from Japan if so he was a blast to run with over at Shizuoka.

Yup, that's the same Shin...he's pretty quick. Carl and I were gaining on him at the end and I was preparing to overtake Carl when Taka came up to lap us and took me out. Hahaha is that how team tactics work? Lol it was good fun.

I remember seeing a website once that had pictures on how to remove metal shields from bearings. It was cool because it showed you where to look on the bearing to stick your thingy in. If anybody knows where that site it, I would greatly appreciate it.

Edit: Nevermind, I found it - http://www.schumacher.clara.net/bearings.htm

cheers

Rod I use a #11 blade and use the back of the tip if that makes sense the key is when looking at the bearing look for where the snap ring goes in and look for the / / space inbetween and hook your blade in the left side as above the right side is impossible to "hook" with the blade.

Hopefully it all makes sense

Thanks Dan. Actually, I wasn't really asking for help on how to remove the shield, I just wanted to find that website for a friend of mine. The technique you described works better with a pin. Do you know how many "close calls" I had with an exacto blade tip breaking off and shooting towards my eye? I'm over using an exacto for that from now on hehe.
