swapped tires around.
samething happens without the body.
the shock feels good
fr toe in shimmed 1.5m evenly on all 4 corners
rr toe in shimmed in the back 2 corners 3 degree in
wheel base spacers are fine
the car does sticks to the ground-awesome handling so far
the only obvious thing i saw was not all the arm mounts had the dots facing out-i relooked at the maunal and it indicated the arm mount's dots face outwward. does that matter? any other ideas?
The pull to the left is related to slop between the servo saver tube and the steering bell crank. The hex shaped nut is loose. I used epoxy to bond the two together to eliminate this issue. Search my posts for more details.
