Hey Jason, what's the 'standard' kingpin lube and damper tube lube for med.-high bite asphalt?

How much droop to run in the front?
I started with Dbl. Pink Jacos all around @ 1.70"/1.80". Cool?

That's a nice site! Just to add on my setup it is with a flat servo...the other 3 DB12Rs running on the same track run angled servos with the stock setup.

After a chat with PDW tubes moved to the front hole = Definately smoother in the corners.

0.070 flex plates installed after Jason B (UK) response in earlier post

Threw mine @ the wall @ almost full chat @ the end of the straight. Wouldn't drive straight after that . Looked under the hood to find the shock missing. Popped it back on and the stuck my 1st sub 12s lap in


Starting with the above @ the R1 UK nationals this weekend. Don't envisage much change though in basic setup. Trying another compound tyre & shell though.
