I doubt it, this body is pretty perfect as it is...

This car is so nice to drive. It works at every indoor track in our area. Can't wait to take it outdoors for a race coming up. The car adapts very well to different surfaces. Get the correct tire's and you're in the ballpark from the begining.

I used STLNST's petite setup last week at my local track and the car felt nice and neutral. The only thing I changed was lowered ride height to 21mm due to the track's high traction. I was traction rolling every turn until I lowered it. The last pictures I posted in here of our local track (craters and tectonic plates) is a thing of the past. The owner really worked on getting the track a lot better and it is so much better now.

Does anyone recommend the brass tow blocks for mod?

Glad it worked for you. My setup's normally are easy to drive and allows you to actually learn the layout rather than searching for that hot lap and running out of time. It may not be for everyone but it's a start and has worked great at every track I've run it at in my area.

yes that would be correct. I have been testing my car with the setup since the amain.com outback shootout. For me it helped with stability of the car, it also helps with on power steering as it will make the rear a little wider than the front.

REAR TRACK-WIDTH
Wider
Increases rear grip at corner entry
Increases high-speed on-throttle steering
Use to avoid traction rolling

I will be picking up my yok tomorrow and very excited to run it. I've read pretty much every post on this thread and think I've made the right choice over the B5m "lite". I'm looking for some setup help as I run a med size, dirt/clay mix. It's usually damp to drying and gets dusty offline. Fast guys run worn chain links or electrons rear and ribbed in the front. Compounds soft or superfsoft, depending on temp. I've downloaded some of the setup sheets from here but any additional help would be much appreciated!

Ok thanks nitrorush27. I still have a stick pack from my SC. I didn't notice the yok could hold a traditional stick
