I had the same problem with mine,it turned out the tires were too worn.This car seems pretty picky when it comes to tires.Those same worn tires weren't an issue with my RDX.

Whats your droop? if you put you car down on a table and turn your wheels left and push right side of the front shock tower, does the rear tire lift?

Since your running on a new track there is no groove. Your not the only one having the same problem. Once a groove is worked in you should be fine. If you need any help I will be down tom and tuesday night. Just let me know if you need anything. Someone is always willing to help at trackside.

thank you.

what would be the difference in driving characteristics from this setup vs. the Juho Levanen / Keven Hebert 2008 Snowbird setup?

Seaball - Oh boy, for some reason with the federal election here in and stuff here in Canada it went up to 21 haha

Maybell - haha yea I still have dream about all that.. what was I thinkin lol

LOW ET - the new one will be more responsive and will carry more corner speed. Juho ran both at the IIC and he prefered the new setup.

the old one will be in my opinion a little bit easier to drive, but pushes more and yield to slower laptimes.

TC5 lipo counter weight if anyone is interested I have a brass weight (approx 180 grams) that fits under the battery and keys into the existing slots in the lower frame. It allows for full access to the tape slots and only adds .100 to the height of the battery. The first batch was made for artwork, which he used at IIC last week, he was real happy with them and suggested that I post here. You can send me a PM or visit www.manutech.info The site is new, but functional. Thanks... cdee
