Default Molly

Yes I agree to an extent. You should use a dry molly spray it comes in a can from crc. IWhat I meant by maintainance was checking frequently for wear. When mine finally went my car would hop down the straight like crazy as the bones would slide out of the channel into the wear spot and cause some sort of imbalance (Vibration).

Exactly!!!......which is why you need to disassemble it and clean the stuff out after EVERY race. Moly is one of the best extreme pressure lubes around and if you think about the small contact surfaces in the dogbone/driver area and the loads they are asked to carry, I choose to have some lube with some kind of film strength rather than nothing at all.

I think something people should keep in mind is dogbones are not just driving the car down the track but are part of the suspension action. If you have dry dog bones under high loads ( just about any corner) if they cannot move freely up and down in their drivers, they will tend to impede suspension movement possibly causing some wierd handling problems.

Yes, they are exactly the same parts.

Those guys may or may not be checking their mail enough. Try calling 641 763 2271.

If anything there's handfull of delta dealers in the US you can go through, as long as they're willing to ship to Austrailia.

Dave will get back to ya. He may be at a race or something. I will see him this weekend in Kansas City for the last HOA race for the season. I am a dealer if you need anything. Not sure what the shipping charges are for you but I can get you a Kit out if you need one!

I have an XP4 for sale opened the box but all the bags are still sealed. It is absolutely brand new. $410USD. I have no idea how much the shipping to Australia would be.
