A Week after I got them Schuey anounced their Ti screws and prices....would have waited if i'd known

many thanx to Kev and Damian...
when do we need and how you can measure the 20% rebound?
If your car is loose and oversteer what can you change first?
cheers

Just add up full set of ceremic bearing,wow!it's smooth!
i had done some modification on the chassis,this to prevent small rock stuck between the rear diff and chassis that cause the rear belt to snap!I'm running lower diff setting.

after i build them I guess/eyeball about 20% of 100% rebound ...so it will come out about 1/4 in ....there's many ways u can go about oversteer/loose
try the mazda 6 body, less dope on the frt..I found with this setup if u dope full frt's it will b loose ..if anything u will push a bit off power...
if the car reacts to fast for u go up in oil 50wt ..for me a car that reacts too fast is loose ....play with spring rates go up and down frt and rear... for me I like a small push that way u can run more dula rate 70 to 80% that way the car will rotate fast and not loose traction....the main thing is to try 1 thing @ a time......update me/us on how it works ..My local track is not open yet so I only have iic wheel time

It was so easy to drive. Planted everywhere and plenty of steering.

Just for reference . . .

With Marc's old setup before Vegas Marc could turn an 11.6 FL with his 19t.

Today he made us all look like rookies putting everyone (he was the only one not running a 13.5ss) a lap down and running his handout CO27 from vegas. He bettered his own PB by about a lap, and hit a bunch of 11.9's and 12.0's even at the end of 5 minutes.

He might be a little modest, and a good friend for suggesting others had something to do with this setup, but make no doubt . . .That guy can wheel a car!
