I'd like to see if my lhs has anything before I head out.
Oh wow, you are kidding right...that track was already perfect. All nice and loamy and real off road. You should expect the to need a set of tires for each run in modified or a set for every 2-3 runs for stock. You are going to have to change the setup by stiffening the car and going to a longer rear link. Tires will be panther soft rattlers, JC orange bar codes, PL Ions or Suburbs in MX. You should call the track and make sure and see if anyone has run on the track yet.

I hit up Don on FB so we will see what he says.

Thanks frank and ryan. I was told sugar but it could be some other additive. I heard 200lbs...whatever that means. I know it will be a surprise to everyone and shop will sell out of the "right" tires. Don't want to be left out to dry. I've done a couple things to free my truck up like stiffer rear springs and sway bar but that was before I heard they did something with the track.

Thanks for the help...been racing for 20 years but just into short course. Know I can be competitive with the right setup. Love offroad now.

Yes you are correct you will need one more piston pack for #3 all around with the latest setup.

So I called and spoke with Chris. He did put a small amount of sugar on the track to see if it could bring the traction up a little, it wasn't a lot of sugar at all so you should be ok with what you had originally. It was more of an additive than anything.

Try the complete setup and report back if you still don't have enough steering. Also double check all your sway bars to make sure they are not bound up at all and make sure your upper shocks wiggle a little and are not bound up from over tightening the nuts as these are two very common findings when we look over trucks for customers.
Whats the part number for the silver springs please.

Does anyone know how long does it takes BCE to send out a chassis after purchase?
