Thanks. So tight? Or just enough to hold it and be free? And no screw in the centre of the top deck.

I just realised I bought a Carbon FFG to cut in half. Will it make much difference compared to the alloy one?

Cheers.

Tried Mike's setup (excpet for Am06m, which will be here tomorrow), although not as much as I'd like, as we got rained out.

Was a bit loose mid corner, what will the am06m add to the car?

Rear grip I tried going back to the am06s on the rear one week and it made the car very loose

as Gee said, hubs will help a ton.
additionally, if you're still loose in the mid corner, (not sure of the exact setup but...) you got 3-4 great options in order that i'd use them--

#1 adjust rear toe gain/loss. you'll want more toe-in. remove some shims (~1mm to see a change) at the bottom on the AM23

#2 more static rear toe in

#3 decrease the inner rear camber length height. think of the inner camber links this way --- if you want more grip, lower the link. if you want less grip (and to free the car) raise the link.

#4 adjust rear camber (depending upon what it is currently at). some tires like more camber. others dont. watch the tire -- especially when they are new, you can see the contact patch. somewhere between 1.5mm to 2.25mm in rear camber can be good options.

I guess you can always get a cookie-cutter belt touring car. A dime a dozen...
You never know.....it might soon be a dime a baker's dozen.

Ok, thanks. I thought the hubs added grip, but wasn't positive.

Thanks for that Hanulec, I'll add this to my notes. I was thinking about the rear bump steer and how much effect it has?

Really contemplating getting the RFG, as most tracks we race on are on the med-low grip side. Would raising the bulkheads still work with the RFG, or would it grip it up too much with both?

So do people still mount the battery on am69 and cut off the tab so it sits on the chassis. Or just mount it direct to the chassis?

Has anyone noticed some up/down play with the AT21S and P03? AT21S seems to have a lot more play than the AT21, 1mm of movement.

is this w/ fresh P03 or re-used P03?

i do see more play -- but 1mm is nothing i've ever seen.
