Alright I just got my 19t car built today and yesterday. Here's the virdict for anyone wondering what my setup is going into vegas: arm sweep is no good for high traction carpet. The car turns in too hard which causes traction rolling, so I'm staying away from that on both cars. I put the 2.5mm chassis on and lowered all my arm mounts .5mm to compensate, then I dremeled the shock tower .5mm to lower the whole tower to keep the same geometry. The only thing now that's different from before is the chassis is thicker , less rear toe (good thing for high grip), and the dogbone angle is .5mm different from before but I doubt that will make a difference. The car is really good though, although I think going 5wt lighter on the oil all the way around will be good in 19t. I'll give that a shot tomorrow to try and let the car break free some through transitions and on exit. It could have used a little more steering but I only sauced half the front tire to be safe it wasn't oversteering, so running 3/4 sauce or more will probably be the way to go.

I've almost got my car ready to go too. I'll take a pic of it tonight once it's done. My one practice day on foams really has me excited about Vegas. I can't wait.

I'm almost done with my bodies. I got a little lazy for the last couple of races and PW wanted to see the PRINCE symbol return to my bodies so by popular demand I brought them back. I stole my body from Steve Weiss since the creativity bug wasn't flowing too well this time around.

Would this be considered an "Out of Body" experience for you Steve?

LMAO!!!!!

Just got back from the track, 5wt lighter oil is too light. The car felt good when I drove it but it lacked corner speed that it had before, so I'm going back to 30/35wt oil. I want the front end to square up harder and not feel so mushy which is what I was going for with the lighter oil, I like my cars responsive, so I think I may just try standing up the front shocks one hole.

Good thing I've got the PSP this year at vegas so if my cars are super dialed again I can just sit around all day like last year . This car is so dialed on rubber tires its sick .
