If Chris has a wet weather setup, I'd try it on this track.

Eaves: missed you this weekend - though you might have came down with the rest of your boys. Let me know how the Schui is treating you.

Ran my MI3 for the first time Saturday. The body didn't even get mounted until the morning time. It took a while to get used to the new car, but by main time it was fairly good. I was not the only Schumacher car there. All the guys put on a good show. If anyone needs a high bite asphalt setup, I have something that will get you close. Can't wait to run it again... I was not sure if I could get away with running the low shock towers with rubber tires, but it seemed to be right on.

You could try my Reedy Race setup, I've run it on low-med-and high grip tracks now and it has worked great. Just lower the rear diff for low grip.

Looked like your car ran well by looking at the laptimes. Not sure what happened in the main but I think you ran the 2nd fastest lap of the A main if I rememeber. Thought you would use the standard towers though.
