i think he means they are setting it on the high side. so the clutch will seem a little too tight until it gets warmed up.

by the way, unless shepherd has changed their spring, it has always been a preferred part, by velox and mrx drivers.

you didn't indicate wear rate, how does the shoe look compared to a new one?

Youre correct we normally use 1 shoe for 2 or 3 races (so 2 or 3 weekends) Wear is a bit higher than normal.

Ow yeah, I forgot to mention. I guess (and know) that about 50% of all topdrivers use our spring.

It might be more than that. The only two springs I will use are Shepherd and Orion.

Can anyone who switched from the 09 or 10 V8 to the Eleven Kit that recently came out provide me with differences they saw in chassis performance on the track? I am looking to possibly upgrade to the Eleven.

Yep. What we have noticed from the start is that the cars has far better corner entry behavior, more ballanced overall due to changed distributed weights.
