slipper material

Jim, I found this on page 117 (good discussion about subject on this page) after doing a search in this thread - see blue bar towards top of this thread. I used the search words "slipper material" and made it show the posts. I didnt go much further in search. I might see if my sc10 has slipper pad shaped like the vmx slipper material, but doubt it. Wont know until tonight.

While Im at it, an extra tip passing on about better resolution with slipper adjustments is to add 2 more coned washers under the nut when getting slipper tight, so it would looke like )()( instead of )( - unless manual has it reversed order then its ()() instead of (). I forget. LOL.
