Jon is up on all of this can can tell you what you really need vs. what is just cool to have.

Keep in mind that Jon is what we call a full punch racer. That means he keeps in touch and has pretty much everything PW has on his car. A guy out to have fun on the weekend can do really well without getting loads of options parts.

However, if you want to see a state of the art Mi2 and you live in SoCal. Check out Jon's car.

We've been increasing droop out here more and more because the tracks here don't have a lot of grip. (other than SoCal that is ) If you're at 3mm now, try 3.5mm. Make small changes. You don't want to go way too far the other way. Just make sure you set your droop after your ride height is set properly, then make sure both left and right are equal.

1.5 should be fine. Try and judge your camber setting by your tire wear if you can. If you're wearing the outer edges too much, try adding a little camber. Just make sure it's a little. Camber is an adjustment where a little goes a long way.

That should be a good place for you to start. We're here to help. The more you can learn about the car, the better.

No, I believe it is just one of the early production/pre-production version's, that had the holes in them and the extra material so that the flanged bearings aren't needed for the outdrives.

was teemu using a different car or a prototype??? the car he was using still had a 2-belt system but a different one... also the front bulkheads seem to be different too... i want his car!!!

only one belt at the rear diff...


can you adjust the center roll by just turning in the diff on the bulkheads?

Bob, are you running at any of the UK national tracks?? if so i may have something that i have used there.

However as a general guide for roll centres etc. We always run the alloy pivot blocks front and rear, which are approx 0.4mm lower than the std plastic ones. Don't think we have ever run without the front riser plate. We usually run with the alloy block either on the plate, or with 0.5mm under there. Usually on the plate with a spool, and raised with a one way.

The rear we usually run with 1.5mm between riser plate and block.

Front wishbone position is usually right back, and rear wishbone is usually 1mm back from centre for a starting point.

Personally I don't ever run anti/pro squat on the rear, or any kickup.anti dive on the front.

Hope some of this helps.
