Well we all know how good the old car can be on carpet rubber, I'm thinking the new one will be SICK!

If only I had a carpet track to run at now... (SIR will be laying carpet in august however which will be good testing for the IIC).

The car looks good in those pics.

That is, not counting that hidious straping tape, holding in those old school batteries.

In particular, those purple turnbuckles look really cool.

I was using Corally SSB pre mounts as they are the control tyre for next weeks big meeting.
My setup is as follows

Front
30 wt oil
Blue spring
Silver roll bar
Shocks on outer most hole on arm and inner most on tower
Inner pick ups on upper hole
5.5mm ride height
Up travel 2mm above ride height
Arms with risers plus 1mm

Rear
30 wt oil
White spring
No roll bar
Shocks on outer hole on arm and almost inner on tower
Inner pick ups in upper hole
6mm ride height
Up travel 3mm above ride height
Arms with risers plus 1mm

I forgot to say I'm running a oneway up front

Thanks
Tim
Might want to try and run a spool, that will calm down the rear through the corner.

Want more turn-in, add some toe-out to the front.
