Default Red is the way

Red is the way to go...
Car is the just "comfortable to drive". only way I can explain it.

Seems like Top is constantly improving the parts as the drivers give input.

I've only broken 1 bellcrank, but I would like to see it in red aluminum as well.

I'm not sure exactly on the center pulley shaft but we did talk a while ago about changing it to steel and putting a shoulder on it so you will only need a spacer on one side. This way it doesn't compress/tweak the car after being tightened down multiple times and the shoulder will eliminate struggling with 2 spacers and keep the center shaft from digging into the bulkhead on one side. Just little tweaks to make it easier/better.

Pedro - The optional camber plate is to change the lenght of the camber link. The 1.25mm has in between holes (instead of 2.5mm between holes) from the stock camber plates plus a really long position that I've really liked on the front end of my car....

I also started using this "really long" link position, and it does seem to to wonders to smooth things out. I opted to use a longer than stock turnbuckle for this as running the stock turnbuckle at this length does not leave many threads in the rod end.

Josh (or any other cool dude out there), care to enlighten on how a longer or shorter camber link affects handling?

it feels that a longer link is smoother in turns but cant allow the car to turn faster or harder for me....

and also, can explain how best i can use the various otion wings and upper decks to tune the car's handling? softer wings should give more grip and side bite and harder upper decks should give less grip overall but gain steering and response?
