Hey, that's good idea

Yes, that is the 301 track. We are very lucky to have such an awesome track.

Mugen makes one. I wish I had the part number for you. I used it, but went back to the stock setup. With the blade, even at its stiffest setting it seemed like it was not enough. I would talk to racers that use it at your local track, and get their feedback.

Here you go -- it is the same one for the 3/4/4R. You might want to search for a cheaper price though. Part# MUG H0185

It's actually not paint at all. It's such a great grade of asphalt that it just shows up that way. It's not my track (I just race there) so i'm not bragging on it, but it's a great track.

I think the contrast with the blue infield paint probably helps!

check the two speed shoes and the two speed gear hub they engage on. I clean my two speed shoes with scotchbrite pads between race weeks to remove the aluminum build-up on them. check the hub and shoes inside for grooves around the circumference and on the inside surface. do not over-oil those flanged bearings in there. that will get on the shoes/hub and cause slippage.

make sure that the balls in the shoes are tight enough (the set screws on the top and bottom- not the tensioning screws on the sides) and that there is not a lot of play on the hub they mount on. you should just be able to barely move that hub between the shoes.

make sure all your pulley hubs are tight on the shafts as well. sometimes if they loosen they will slip a bit and cause problems like you say. i had the brake hub loosen on the rear shaft and then "weld" itself back in place from the heat.
