You have to put more shims on the left side than the right side of the Yok diff.

There is a fine line between it rubbing on the chassis cutout and the belt rubbing on the right side of the pulley.

Sorry to post this here but I figured I would get a quicker reply... I have the T.O.P alluminum/Carbin fiber steeringbell crank Brand new in package. I ordered one to find out it was on back order so I just got one from the LHS. I think these retail for like $35-$40..

I will sell it shipped (in the US) for $30.. thats less than what I paid. Sorry no part number or pic. and it does come with the aluminum incerts.. please just shoot me a PM... and one again sorry for posting this here..

We've been doing some work on our local track and finally have a real nice place to race. I'm not sure why we chose to paint it red.

Smooth asphalt, no sealant. We spray it with grape soda and the grip comes up well. The paint is just an asphalt paint.

Hey Larry or Hanulec,


Need some ideas on setup changes for parking lot racing using sugar water and pop, basically low traction.


I have a great setup on my car now for medium to high traction carpet. I raced it last weekend as is outside, it worked well but i know it could be faster.


Would you make the car softer \ roll more, softer roll less, etc?


Dilemma, i don't want to make whole sale changes as i race on carpet during the week and outdoor on Sundays. Springs and roll-center wouldn't be bad.


Thanks

What about (try one at a time)
- 344 or 324 front springs
- discconnect the front bar
- stand up the rear shocks
- remove the "inside" screws on the top deck
- rear gear diff with super lite oil.

What do u think Larry?
