Which one?

I'll take a couple picks tonight of both cars. I'll also get the setup to my DB12R posted. I gotta get tools out to measure stuff and I've been lazy since I got back from Florida.

See everyone, Schreff is alive and kicking.... I *DO* drive a real car better than my RC cars. Of course just 1 wrong turn on the way to the airport scared him a little but he still got there on time....

Actually, I'm looking forward to see you set-up as well..... Man you had the car on Rails!!!!!!!

where would you put the screw and nut? wouldnt you just be able to put the set screws in there, to prevent it from turning too much?

Just guessing, but I'd do it through the fiberglass "hockey sticks" using the holes that had been intended for the unneccessary tweak screws. You'll just be clamping a washer against one side of the 'glass with a screw and nut through the stick. Larger washer would act "stiffer", smaller washer less so. This is because you are bracing that portion of fiberglass and preventing it from flexing.

All this is assuming you really need a stiffer piece. I'm guessing that if you do you're actually masking other set-up issues...or you're on REALLY high bite conditions. Like freakishly high.

A good idea IF you find youself in some bizarre parallel universe of traction.

You indicated you're new...there's NO way you'll need this this year or next. Period. Follow Jason's recommendations including the kit parts and you'll be fine. The screw and washer trick will be something to tuck under your hat for some day if you find yourself in a crazy predicament and have the driving and set-up skills to realize it's your last hope.
