I will be there!!!!

I ran my "Vegas" car today with a fully "carpet car" (chassis, top deck and both shock towers)

I basically rebuilt a whole new car and it felt really good, but the chassis does make the car much more aggresive. I found that I had to settle the front end down a bit to make it easier to drive.

I had a slight mid corner on power push....that could have been our bite at our local track.....but it felt like i had a little too much steering up front and I was scrubbing some speed. (5 degrees would be PERFECT!!!)

But this was my personal best with a 19T on our Vegas layout....so i was very happy with the car.

For those going to Vegas - i saw a almost complete chub from Team Tamale - they are gonna be perfect!!!!

He will have approximately 25 sets. I have him making what people have told me they wanted, so shoot me a PM to make sure you are "on the list"

I've seen a lot of talk about the new shock towers lately. Whats the purpose of the new shock towers? All I know about them is that they are lower.

they are lower obviously.........but they allow for some different angle shock adjustments, which in turn will allow just a few more tuning options. When i ran my yesterday, the closest angle to the regular shock tower definitely gave me a little more aggressive feel. I definitely need to make a few more adjustments to make the front tower work....

Depending on what you are considering planted or too planted. If the rear of the car is not rotating as well as you would like you can play with the position of the wing. Move it closer to the front of the car and the car should rotate a bit easier. As well, move it back and the rear of the car should feel a little slower coming around. As far as modifications to the actual wing however you have little options as the wing is usually teched and should be certain width and no higher than a particular hight. You may be able to shim the wing up or down but you will have to stay within regulation, so be sure the inquire with your track officials.
