Lasse,

Yeah, I spent time getting the setup perfect and planned to start pushing it hard after that. You got to take advantage of my work straight away you jerk!

I like the ESC in the rear for cleaner wire placement mostly. My car is 45/55 F/R and 50/50
L/R with it there so it also has the advantage of having the weight balance I prefer in my car.

I have a fix for the steering rack slop, I will hook you up.

I will be there sometime tomorrow if all goes well.

I have mine set to about 3/4 of the way down in the front. But I do use Xgear springs and not the out of the box ones. If you look at pics of Ty's cars, he also seems to thread them down pretty far.

You do bring up a thought. Anyone consider using truck springs on the front of this car (rear seems fine)? But since we still have more thread left, I didn't think it was critical.

Awesome thanks. I'm up in Chico testing for the right setup, so far so good.

I believe those are custom one offs for Ty. There was rumor that HB would eventually do their own but no date was given.

there is a guy that used AE shocks on his car. I wonder if the shock caps from AE with their standoffs would fit the HB? I'm sure AVID, SCHELLE, EXOTEK, or SOMEBODY will come out with aluminum caps and usual standoffs.

hard to say without knowing how much you drive...i get at least 30+ min of pure driving in 5 days a week (5 battery packs)....if no leaks then i would redo every other month or so

when oil breaks down it gets thinner, so if the car begins to diff out, your either running a leaking diff, or your oil has thinned...either way clean and put some fresh in there

when the diffs have been refilled, and a few packs run through it, take note how much the tire spins when you hold the opposite tire....full, half, third rotation...jot it down somewhere, and check it once in a while
