I have never seen one like that




I have just gone over my car after the weekend and I noticed front left has 2 spacers and the right has one, I am talking about the spacers behind the front arm down wards. Now the question is what difference would it make handling wise? The car broke the club 17.5 record twice this weekend so it is fast, Should I change or leave it? If so what would be better for a large tight and open medium grip track

Thanks

I don't think anything are good if they are different between LEFT and RIGHT unless you are doing some OVAL racing...are you talking about the SHIMS underneath the upper aluminum blocks and will create Anti-Dive or Anti-Squat?

Thanks. I have a ton of Mi2EC arms and tried it and it works better but I don't like the fact that the Mi2EC arms are weaker than pretzels. What do you guys do for the rear bar?

Then compare the lap times and feel of the car from all 3 settings. Yeah most the time you always want everything equal L/R on your car, but if you like having antidive on only the left front, then just leave it. Whatever works the best is whats right.

I remember the Novak race a few years ago and I think it was Jared Scott who noticed his car had anti-dive on only the left front, but his car was dialed so he left it. If your car is good, make a note of the setup, make changes, and if you don't like them, go back to where it was the best.
