Just wanted to get some opinions on the best COE's out there. I will probably not be using the newly legal shock mounted type. I have had pretty good luck with D&M's COE. But what else works well? BTW don't buy the AFCO roller style sliders, they wear out and start binding in a matter of a couple races. Maybe the will redesign for '05 but the ones I had this year were junk.

as far as just sliders i would get bsb ones.
i have some howe ones and crushed the ball bearings in a race one night, made them all go flat instantly. car went from right to right off the track just about. pulled them apart to clean and all the bearings were no longer round, just perfectly flat.
that was on one of them. the other one has always been great so i am not sure about the howe deal.
new ones no qustion bsb ones for me if i was going to get some.

side note i am not sponsored by bsb but i would just like to say that they are very nice people. have great high quality products.
i got some parts one time and they did not have everypiece in the box, but they made up for it shipped them out and apologized.
also they have a great pull bar coming out. very nice piece.
i highly recomend them.

i like the Gaerte ballbearing eliminators, they have worked very good for us, they also make pullbars that are very good.

southwest speed are the ones i use. a little spendy but a nice piece. we ran 24 nights this year and never had them apart just gave them a shot of grease each night. we run mostly dryslick though so not a lot of mud ever gets on them.

I too have tryed the afco roller bearing slider with no luck, the roller bearings would break and need replacing atleast every other week or so. I have been using the sliders that Harris sell and love them. No binds, super easy to clean and cheap.

Have used the southwest speed ones for a couple years now,although i haven't tried any others. But a pump or two of grease and just spray some wd-40 in em and have had virtually no problems.

I love the BSB outlaw sliders. Have tried the Howe's and Track Products brands, and both seemed to wear out and get sloppy. We ran the BSB sliders 45 plus nites last year, and had zero problems. In fact, they are still good to go for next year! We run a 4-bar car with the springs angled in, and these sliders seem to hold up under side loads very well.
I've heard the Gaerte Sliders are pretty good also, but haven't tried them.
