the car was unbelievable. corner speed was silly fast.
heres the setup for those of you that would like to try
Craig I thought you were running 3 gold shims per side on the axle? I can say this set-up is dialed! I ran my car to 6th after a terrible start... I.E Hacking myself on the first turn and having 7th and 8th place ram the back of my car... then still on the first lap hitting a flapper and flying off the track.
I can say the Speed 12 is much better then the Speed 8. The Speed 8 feels like you are gliding through air with no resistance, but it won't steer. The Speed 12 is so much more reactive. The Speed 8 HD seems to be all down force in the rear so it is super planted. For some reason the Speed 12 is perfect because it has the perfect balance of front and rear down force to free up the rear just enough. Also I can't wait to try the Corals. From what I hear from you and Mike Haynes they should be perfect.
Jason, I also let 360's manager, Dave Grabowski try the car and he was amazed. He said it had so much steering compared to other cars. So over all the car is good... I just need more practice with it because the set-up I was running felt like a TC and nothing like a 1/12th until Craig helped me.
Oh and Craig, thanks for picking up the flex plates and Linear springs for me. If you haven't tried them... YOU SHOULD. The car steers like an animal with them and the whole day they didn't collapse.
