Wound Up CX Fork w/SRPrickbr

Anybody using a Wound Up CX fork with
SRP Mr. Grumpy Brakes? My front brakes really it flex in the fork? you can really see the
wheel shaking especialy at the hub??? Or is it the SRP brakes, which are a real @#%&* to set up?

I'm using the True Temper (AME) carbon fork with V's (ceramic rims and pads) and I have zero problems with brake/fork chatter. In looking at the W-U vs the TT, it's immediately apparent that the W-U small leg diameter is contributing to the chatter. This is compounded by the strength of the SRP brakes.

I had severe fork flex with the grumpys on my waterford fork. I had to readjust the angle, so they were less powerful, and the chattering and flexing went away. The bane of cantilever brakes is the hours it takes to set them up.
I have it too with SRP'sclimbo

and a Kinesis alu fork on my Specialized. The shuddering seemed worse than last year. Does this go away with a crabon fork? Has anyone used carbon fork and has some input? I like the power but the shuddering is awful.
