Also I ran Donny's set up at hisperia last year and I couldn't recall if the front shocks were all the way out in the front. I thought that they were in the middle. Oh well......that set up was fast and got me a 2nd place finish at that event.
If the car is feeling twitchy with our setup, the first thing we do is move the rear arms back all the way. It usually smooths out the car and makes it easier to drive. Front shocks, we've been running them both on the outside and in the middle. Laying them down seems to make the front end a little smoother on turn in. Standing them up made it respond to steering quicker.

we have two days of practice so I will be trying a little of everything. With the correct tire's on there the car was dialed but when I went to a softer tire is where I ran into a little trouble....but we don't get the option of switching tire's at the Reedy so hopefully the RP's will give better traction than the take off's at that track. Thanks for the info.

Gee Turbodog i did't know you were listening.You be at the race? I'm trying like hell to make this race. Like i said i would run ANY setup as long as it gives me more grip than what i ran last at strickland. It's been too long since i ran touring and my car was fast but way loose.So hence puting a new setup on. You still big dog in my book baby!!!!

Did you use the X-Ray springs as my set-up shows? And also the alloy rear hub carriers? What could you identify different on how the car's balance and cornerspeed compared to PW's set-up?

I had it to the "T" except for the xray springs. I have the AE springs on the car blue and silver. If they feel that much different than the AE one's then I'll pick up some and bring them down to the Reedy race with me. PW's set up carried good corner speed but they were run at two different tracks. I ran PW's at speedworld (low bite) and I ran yours at Ripon (high bite) so it's hard to compare the two. Both set up's felt great and were easy to drive. Since I have more stick time with your set up I'd have to give yours the nod. Remember I switched to your set up in Hisperia at the regionals. At Ripon the well set up oneway cars were only 1/10 faster than the spool until we tightened up our lines. I will make sure that my car is dead on yours when we hit the track for practice and go from there.

The X-Ray springs are a little stiffer then the AE springs of the same rating. I will actually try AE springs and AE hubs hopefully this weekend for a test. I have actually been slowing moving closer to PW's set-up as of late anyways. See you soon.

Default Mi2 Undertray?

Can anyone tell me if there is an undertray available for the Mi2?

I am currently running on an outdoor track that is not very clean and I keep getting pebbles in the gears.

Also, are we going to see a new chassis for the 3800?


Sorry one other question, I know the Schumacher distributes Take-Off Tires.

Is there a temp chart for each tire?
