Hey the Shaq Daddy did promise to win a championship to Miami so he is one step closer to sealing the deal. He is playing like he did a few years back.

I've had this too, it's because the chassis is only 2mm thick (not enough to fully countersink without weakening it at each hole)
To check tweak pop the chassis on some hudy droop blocks between the screws, you can see if the chassis is twisted like this.

Yeah, you'll need use some setup blocks like the ones Hudy makes or the ones in the Schumacher droop set. That way you can place those between the screws so it's just contacting the chassis and see if the chassis is flat. That's my favorite part about the EC, all you have to do is tighten down the screws and the thing is square .

Ran my car in the 2nd round of the ORL2 series in 19T today. Quailified 6th and broke a rear CVD pin and got to run 3wd in the main!!!!!!!!!! Damn I hate what that happens. All in all the car was pretty good but just didn't get enough steering all day long. Alot of it was the track because only one or two cars really turned all day long whether on new tires, 1 run or 5 run on them still pretty much the same for me. Not a huge deal I will try a few other things next time out but the track I race at this weekend coming up uses VHT to traction will be high.

I'm going to move up the front camber link on my carpet tower for next weekend. Going to drill them up like many of you guys have posted and see how I like it. Also ran the 4 degree caster blocks but prefer the 6 degree so I will put them back on as well as rebuild the whole car and reset all my adjustments.

I would reccomend trying my Reedy Race setup too, it was very forgiving and easy to drive. If I had more time I could probably have made it a little faster but that would also make it harder to drive, this was the setup to have for consistancy, and clearly it was fast enough too .
