how do you like the caddie? I've been running nothing but the Mazda since the Reedy race. Nothing else seems to handle as well.

The Caddy has a little less steering and is much more stable. The rear wing mounts a little lower so you can run a larger wing and still be ROAR legal.

Less steering all around or on entry? Would you go with it to smooth out a car that was a little too twitchy?

I would say mainly less steering on entry. If you car is a little twitcy with the Mazda, it should definately calm it down.

That Mazda 6 is too twitchy IMO. The car came alive when I switched to the stratus. On tighter tracks I like the alpha or the caddy. I threw a solid paint job on the car for this weekend as well. I heard that the track was pretty open so I don't think that I will be needing an aggressive body. I may bring the Mazda 6 just to show off the paint job....LOL

Hi Guys,

just want to post a quick note in here, we got some of the new Mi2 spools in stock, along with a couple of new hop-ups as well, including the Teemu chassis, sway bar kits and alloy suspension blocks

I'm running Teemu's LRP Masters setup with few changes:
-no roll bars
-AE blue springs rear
-rear shocks are on 2nd hole on tower and 2nd hole on arm (from outside)
-45wt (front) and 35wt (rear) and AE #2 piston
-4deg caster blocks
I'm going to try Teemu's setup on friday to see if it works better..

I agree with STNLST, the Mazda 6 is very inconsistent. I went back to the Protoform Alfa 2.0, but have seen others using the Parma Alfa with great success. I have used the Caddie body also but only on asphalt, worked well, very planted, just havent had much time to experiment lately. I will be hitting my home track this weekend, they layed down some new carpet now it is time to get serious!

How can you do that? ...at the nats we had to meaure the wing from one corner of the side dam to the opposing corner and it had to be a certain size (don't remember the size but I had to hack the hell out of my wing as did others), then the mesured from the front of the wing to the back of it, same thing, chad to be a certain size ...mounting lower wouldn't help that.
