Hey Franko, I actually ran 2 different pipes on Saturday, a Mega and a Novarossi, both with similar pipe, but different headers. I ran a longer header pipe (Mega) in the first 2 qualifiers, then ran the shorter header pipe (Novarossi) in the 3rd round where the TQ of the day came, then I ran the same pipe in the Main. Those are older pipes, you might have a hard time finding them available now, but Ron (Atomic) ran his TZ with a Skyline VR12 pipe and had great results, the new VR12+ should be great with it! This weekend at TZ, if time allows for break-in this week, I'll be running the new Sirio EVO3 STI motor with their EVO3 pipe, I might put the OS back in and run with the Sirio pipe just to see what it does.

I run O'Donnell 30% fuel.

Nice! Don't forget if anyone ask you, you chose the RRR because of me!

I'll write down my setup from last weekend and send it to you in the next few days.

I bought the ceramic Boca Bearings today. EXPENSIVE!!

Could someone get a crash cart for my credit card please? I think it went into cardiac arrest.

I ordered the standard RRR set (#25-420C-YU - $199.95), which comes with an extra rear clutch bearing and ordered a spare front clutch bearing (SMR85C-YUU NB2 - $9.95). Tack on $13.95 for 2-day shipping to Hawaii and the total comes out to $235.00 *Khack* *Cough* *Cough* *Choke*

Jo Gutierrez - Dude! I just could not bring myself to shop at the $1 store. Hmmm.. Let's see... 26 bearings at a $1 a piece. Thats only $26!

markp27 - We'll see how long these last.

jeffreylin - Yeah, I know what you're thinking.

robert - Looks like it's just you, me and rcrossco_1 (Hey rcrossco_1, you still running ceramics on your RRR?). The three free-est rolling RRR's on the planet. It better be worth it! Just kidding bro! I know they are. Otherwise I would not have bought them.

Ultimate X spec? Definitely optional!

Nope. No lottery here.

I just absolutely, absolutely had to get these. Call it an obsession. There are some things in life that you can just take people's word for - and other things you just have to experience for yourself. I don't expect them to last forever, but at least I can say that I've tried them.

ROBERT!?? What's going on? What did you do with your bearings? Did you forget to tell me something?

If you dumped them, how many hours do you think you had on them? At least it will give me some idea of what to expect. Thanks!

Cool! Very smart design. Much more adjustment and suspension travel friendly than the VZW2007-02 (the blue shiny piece of the VZW207 set).
