Try cvds and dogbones back to back and see if you notice any difference. CVDs tend to 'take away' traction and are better on high bite tracks. A cvd, a dogbone, and a universal (u-shape one piece shaft) all work differently. There is plenty of reading on the internet with better information on the differences.

I think AutoZone. It is called "synthetic grease" and says on the can for wheel beaings, chassis, suspension and universal joints.

Hey Brad, thanks for the spur gear yesterday...I still don't know where mine went. I'll mail yours back, call me later today.

BTW, CP track setup posted on motonica-usa.com, on the support page. My car was very good this weekend, but in the main I was not. Too many mistakes and crashes and eventually I broke. Still managed to qualify and place 4th, which is not bad all things considered. The YBSLOW front body mount plate took a beating but came out without a scratch.

Hi to everyone. I want to install a new frontbulkheads ergal linkage to my car. Has someone noticed that the front arm holders did not fit very well to the ergal piece. I must cut some material from the holders to fit properly. Any comments? Thanks.
