Unsprung weight is a huge part of racing it's allot to type out I found this artical that explains it well.

Yea I haven't even thought much of what I'm going to do with the fronts yet! Probably no taller than 25"! I have to see how the EEE will respond with the new rear tires and better traction! The EEE does push like a pilot, but I am hoping to have better control and response than what I have now!

I wish they gave a accurate weight as part of their specs on tires.

What was the tires that Cowboy ran on the rear of his Pilot think they were on a 12" rim or will a 12" rim work on yours?

I got these mounted yesterday! Hadn't put the gps to them yet, but will soon! I no longer have too much wheel spin!!! They hook up well coming out of a corner! Almost too well!!! Need to re-learn how to drive the triple eee now! Too much lift on the front and hard to keep the wheels on the ground!!!

Nice
You making clutch adjustments?

RPM's dropped how much?

Any weight gains between new and old? I bet you can cut off a few pounds weight pretty easy on them and not affect traction a bit.

You need to hook up with slickrick and do some testing see how you compare.

How many ply are they?

Did weigh them they are 37 pounds! One pound heavier than the old ones! One inch shorter too! I could groove them and drop the weight. No I haven't done any clutch tuning yet!!! I need to buy the tools and stuff first! I wouldn't know where to start either!!!

Only on pound more that's great, you should have been with slickrick and crew at his last race/party bet those guys would have some tips and tricks on grooving tires.

Your next race or ride is ?

We spent most of friday and some more money welding up NEW cracked tubing, and brocken tabs!!! Seems like every time I fix one thing it leads to something else breaking on this Engine mount!!! I sure wish I knew who did this fab work so I could put a knot on his head!
Spindle finally shattered, so hopefully I can come up with $$$$ to have new ones made! I'm told a cnc machinist should be able to match what I have???
Hopefully give me a better bolt pattern too so I'm not chasing odd wheels!
Eventually these bugs will get cleared up (I hope) so I can work on the suspension, then the clutching!!!
Neverendingf'ingproject!!!

Sounds like you need to pull that Engine mount and start over wonder if they used some shit chinese steel tubing?

Speedchaser can make the hubs if it has a drawing or the old one?

Pics?

Thank You very much Curtis!!! I will contact speed and see if he has time to knock this out... I have the next race in a month, and would love to use the triple eee to finish this series...
I am thinking of asking Speed to duploicate what I have, but to change the hole pattern of the lug studs to a more common wheel...
If Speedchaser can't do it I will let you know! Again Thanks for the offer!!!

I had this done in San Antonio! $114 for 2 square feet of 3/4" 6061 aluminum to be cut to the 7 1/2" disc! I then had the broken hud welded up and NEW holes drilled for the 4 on 4" pattern! This was used to bolt the new adapter to the hub! I now have a 156 on 4 holl pattern which will make it easier to find wheels and tires!
