And how big is your track and what gearing are you running?

That's a big indoor. It almost looks like a Rebar, holeshot, impact, or even a green barcode tire.

I would play with the EPA settings and turn down the initial punch. Also run no to low drag brake. And with a 6.5 you really don't need any Turbo or boost (my opinion).

I have the same amount of rip as the 6.5's

I'm geared 23/84 with a 7.5 Orion vst. And I have my curve turned down

I would also try different diff oils so you can see first hand how it drives. Maybe it will work for you with your driving style?

But I would do the EPA first.. then play around with diffs

Good luck

Tacky clay. Used gold barcodes or clay suburbs.

I'm running the car bone stock with rear spacer in.

I guess what I'm asking is the reason for the +2 mounts. I keep reading that guys using them are having issues with the rear end being loose.

My car was perfect.I'm.not changing anything.but I think the 10.5 motor has a lot to do with it.I'm going today if you want to try it.the rear never got loose it had a tiny push entering the turn .very easy to drive.ions were hooked up .maybe cause I had a 10.5 cause no one else was using them.

until recently I was running the car the same way. I was also on tacky clay. Now that the cold weather has come into Chicago the track is getting drier and drier. I took the composite piece off the rear of the chassis and dropped the gearbox down. wow. quite a difference in the amount of power I can put down through the middle and exit of a corner.

Are the New rear hangers available yet? I really don't want to purchase the old/stock ones, bust out the dremel, then a few days later the new lower hangers are available

I got them. I went to my hobby shop and had him order them for me. Right now I am running the +2 hangers with the spacer in between. Should I remove the spacer?
