July CSR Update

SpecRacer Enterprises & CSR News

Wheel Hub Upgrades – Great news, wheel Hubs have been revised to provide a tighter fit to the bearings.  A lot of racers asked for a tighter bearing fit and we now have it.  These new hubs should give longer service with multiple bearing changes.

 GEN3 Clutch Status - Currently the Tilton organic clutch material disk is the only one available.  A new Gen3 Clutch is still in process and the comments were that a more expensive clutch is desirable if it can help keep the transmissions in service longer. MIke Davies is working with a new vendor with new pad material. 

GEN3 Gear Sets – New gear sets are available to ship now.

Brakes - The new Wilwood calipers have been approved for production. The new calipers will not be available for distribution until after the 2017 Runoffs.
