.090" wide?

 

What did Gugu make you a special wide batch to run on the Renegade? :laugh2: :laugh2: :laugh2:

 

But seriously, I measured the original ones, and they were a few thou under the limit.

 

I just checked about a dozen, from the new batch, and they were all about .0835" wide.

 

I never bothered to check any "in the middle", but a blade .090", wouldn't fit in my threader, and about 95% of the guides I sell, the customer has me thread them.

Does anyone have a part number or supplier for the newer Red Fox guides?

Everyone just calls it the new Red Fox guide, I am sure it has a number but I don't know it. Mike Swiss (Chicagoland) sells them, but you should be able to get them through most raceways or distributors.

As Eddie mentioned, I sell them.

If you don't have a local raceway, to support, I'll be happy to sell them to you.

I also thread them for 50 cents, which if you don't have a real good threader, I would recommend.

The stock number from the dist. I typically buy them from, Eagle, is RFGUIDEC.

For those who missed it, an A-B test finally materialized between the HP "boat rudder" guide and the Red Fox, on Between the Lanes #17.
 
With a Group F wing car, on a punched Gerding King, the Red Fox was .02 faster.
 
For those who don't do Facebook, you can access it, via an embedded video, at OWH.
 
Mention of the testing is near the end of the broadcast (last five minutes?)
