Big Thanks to Plyhammer!

After breaking a front wheel hub on my 951 during qualifying at the Mid Ohio PCA Club Race this weekend, I called Mark (late afternoon on Saturday) and he hooked me up with a good set. It was a little bit of a drive, but the parts were waiting on us and exactly what I needed. We bolted them up on Sunday morning and I was able to make the Enduro race later that morning.

I didn't have a qualifying time so I started in the back of the the pack (33rd). I somehow managed to work my way through the field and finished on the podium in third.

Thanks Mark - I couldn't have done it without you!

Podium, congrats that's hard work in a enduro race. Can you post pics of where the hub broke/cracked?

I heard a "pop" while halfway through a hard right-hander (keyhole), then the wheel started vibrating quite badly. I thought the wheel was going to come off before I got to the pits. I think I'm lucky it didn't.
