3 long days of racing are over. Well, I rather enjoyed the MM car in 13.5 Super Stock. I need to think about if I want to try a light weight MM 17.5 setup. I hate dumping another $200 into a stock car. I might just run mod for a while. So much fun to lay power down.

move the rear bottom to inside is the "std" setup in the rear. rest of it looks like what 95% of people with a b5m are running.

what tires? what is everyone else running? foams?

if your running 1.6s all around, going to 3 x 1.4s will gain some steering.

what battery? where are your pads? if a shorty try moving it back to gain off-power steering.



is my setup car is very balanced, and has a slight on power push allowing the car to be driven harder, most of which is the Tight diff setting.

4 hole piston with 32.5wt is most likely letting your front end "dump" on entry i would suggest going up to atleast 35wt if not 37.5.

if the aka closed cell fronts are too new, any car will push if they are unmodified foams.



is what hartson was doing to soften up a new foam to increase traction this weekend.

and if your diff is too tight your car will feel like it pushes on entry - because the rear wont rotate.
