Any news on Teemu and Pdub's progress today and where they are placed for tomorrow? how's Weylin doin?
I hope schumacher are continuing to develop the platform and look forward to trying some new setups.
Just ordered some us spec shock towers and top deck to try with my std ec on carpet with rubber tyres. Some local team guys have had a lot of sucess with this recently so we'll see...

Not sure where PW is (or when he even got all of his stuff from the air port ) But Teemu is in the A main. Weylin didn't go (I don't think )

I saw one of Paul's finishes was mid 16 lap run. chances are he was in the C or D with the way that competition was. Also that was only1 result that I saw...who knows what the rest were.

Congrats to Teemu for moving up 4 positions in the Finals.

Teemu and PW found some more speed overnight. PW's best run was a 16 5:00.

Great job Teemu, for a small team with only a couple of team drivers in italy to develop a setup, it is a great acheivement just to be in the top ten!

and Teemus car does look remarkably stock, The guy is inhuman!

i ran my EC for the first time this weekend. the car was really good. each change i made made the car better, i ran the stock set-up minus the sway bars and i used xray white springs(17.5 lbs) all the way around. what will adding the sway bars to the car do to the handling?

Adding swaybars will limit the roll a little more. Keep it flatter. Sometimes it will take grip away, sometimes it will add grip. Depends on how the rest of the setup is and what track conditions are like.

We have found that running lighter springs and using sway bars to limit the roll is faster than using stiffer springs with soft sway bars or no sway bars.

We have not found a situation yet that required a spring stiffer than the kit 14lb white springs. In fact some of the mod guys are running springs softer than that. Shock angle, oil changes and black (1.5mm) sway bars are all we have needed to get dialed in.
