If you are in this forrum, then you definitely DONT want to use them. They are not make to withstand sideloads from roadracing.

The right way to do it is to cut off the 8.8" ends, and weld on 9" ends, but that is overkill.

I've heard this said a lot from different road race guys for what it is worth...

If you use a Timken roller bearing type c-clip eliminator they can withstand much more abuse than the ball bearing type. The ball bearing type will leak simply because they aren't really designed to seal fluid and are really a straightline only part. The Timken roller bearings do a much better job of sealing fluid and can handle the side loading abuse unlike the ball bearings. However, I don't know if you'd want to run even a Timken style c-clip elim. if you are planning to road race a lot?
