Any high quality bearing grease is just fine for the stubs. The cv's grease is a matter of debate though.

Thanks. That explains to me how micro stubs can be so much shorter. I wanted to go that route, but since I already had the entire stub/brake/hub assembly, I couldn't justify spending all that money for new stuff.  Longer axles would have been nice, but with more travel (I can get about 16" now) comes longer shocks. Which would have been higher than my roll cage. I guess looks shouldn't matter, everything I build looks funny anyway!


everyone has been there a time or two!

thats a very good question! not one i can answer though as i run micro stubs which are bearing hub assembly. i sould think a higher temp wheel bearing grease with 2% moly or so would be just fine. probably a grease rated for 500* or 550* .

The article was very interesting . Lots of no compromise innovations.1325 HP estimate N/A from 427 inches. Over 3 HP per inch.12,000 rpm.   Damn.

2 valve n/a!!  the 12k rpm is what caught mt attention right off the bat. hp will be very impressive but 12k is a lot distance per gear!
