Craig, well done buddy. 2 big wins in the last month is nothing to sneeze at. Your input in this thread will be missed.
It seemed to me the set up would have worked better on a higher bite track.
I don't know the spring rates of the HPI stuff, just that we have been running some thin oil even on the sticky carpet. And like I said in some other thread ..
A "W" is a "W". Maybe even move the upper rear shock mount inward.
But then again, what do I know?

Oops ... I mean lower rear !

Whoops that was a typo, should have been xa/e not xa/c

I added rear toe because I wanted to encourage that "stuck" feeling in the rear, and wanted the car to straighten out on power when exiting the two long corners on th track.

I've updated the setup sheet on the last page

I've seen guys running 4 or 4.5 deg toe in.
Pretty crazy huh?

I think there may be a 3R aluminum one in 6*, but I don't have a part number, never have seen a TRF one listed. You may have to go to a different make of car and modify something, try serpent or HB.

I've been looking for TRF decals for months now, I think if Jilles and Marc would keep from hogging them all and putting them on all their cars, the rest of us could get a sheet or two.
