GHEA doesn't have high/low roll center options like this does though.

Anyway, he watched me drive a bit, gave me some pointers, and pulled out the 1MM ball stud washers from the rear leaving me with just the 2MM (instructions say install both). Can't say that did much, but minute changes are probably lost on me at the moment.
I'm pretty much at the same level as you. Spent weeks developing my own package, based on the stock set up. Stiffer springs all around, heavier shock oil, lower ride height. It drove well, but wasn't consistent or much faster. Finally asked my son for help ( he's one of the fastest guys in 17.5 at our track ) Took a huge leap of faith to try his set up - different springs, shock oil, droop, camber links as long as you can get them. Looked pretty radical in my mind, but it totally hooked up. It was a big learning experience, sometimes you have to ask for help.

The lay down transmissions are tempting, and look good, but I've heard both good and bad - parts not lining up straight, cases breaking etc., and while the rear hubs and some of these newer bits all look nice but I am not convinced they will hold up for very long or are printed strong enough to withstand a "club racing" collision I'm glad its being done but I don't personally feel that they are "there" yet.

I do foresee one day ordering up a part online from a manufacturer, downloading the file and printing my own stuff at home or at the track - then the file disappears - no more stocking parts, just order it on my phone, print it and go race!

The WWHD laydown transmission is NOT 3d printed. It is machined out of delrin.

Daragh, the cost to machine the wwhd setup has got to be up there. It's billet machined delrin. My XB2 transmission tolerances are pretty damn good, but you cannot compare them to a machined billet.

People have been using the 4wd front tire trick since I started like 10 years ago, I haven't ever seen a buggy with 4wd fronts fail tech.
Last I remember at nationals your car can't squeeze into it, it has to fall over it... Idk, it's been forever since I've used 4whl fronts bc generally it sucks lol.

That's why for outdoors we always make double Dee fronts instead of just mounting 4whl fronts...

For club racing, there is never a "box". for events, no idea if it fits in the box. We only have 1-2 events a year that use the box and tech. We had guy racing at 1450g for a while....rules are pretty loose for club racing.

I kinda miss the old days when club races would still check your weight and run it through the box etc... It kinda made it feel more official and like actual racing. There is next no stock racing anywhere around here. So there's nothing to tech....

There is, they just don't. Even mod needs to "fit the box" and make minimum weight. I would be happy if my tracks just checked weight, especially for Stock!

My car was more around 1410, not 1450.
