I also added 2mm to rear arms block to increase roll center. I still feel a little loose on the rear.

I already have yellow Schumacher springs in the front which are pretty hard.

What oil number you are using? for the rear and for the front?

Try lowering the inner roll centre spacers, lowering it will give you more grip.

"IT'S A JOKE, DAMNIT A JOKE!!!!

You know, being as it's the same four guys in here... you should see by now that nearly EVERY TIME I POST IN HERE I ASK ERIK HOW TO GEAR.

It does not require you to try to be a good samaritain and answer my silly "how do I gear?" question."

No no, what's your roll out? Roll out is a much better way to determine the proper ratio for your car. That way you can compare between two cars with different tire sizes. Much more accurate.

I'd also recommend BK pitch gears, they are definitely better. They hold up better than 64 p.
