We currently campaign a 1.8t Mk4 in the American Endurance Racing Series. While the car itself is well sorted, and handles wodnerfully, we do have an issue keeping wheel bearings and axles under the thing.
We currently run *** brand bearings, new, and repacked with CV2 grease. We run parts store axles with Neo Synthetic Grease.
Before we added the KW's and Differential, the car was pretty friendly on these parts, but evey since them (faster, more load, more heat) we've had nothing but misfortune with the car.
With that said, I was curious to anyone who races these cars, as to if they have upgrade ideas, or solutions to keeping them happy.
As of now, we're curreently looking at upgrading to:
R32/TT front spindles/hub bearings for that section
Custom axles with R32 style outers, and 2.0/VR6 'porsche' style inners (as the stupid tripod sucks!)
Any help would be appreciated. We do have ducuting to the inner CV and outer, but it just doesn't work.
