We have found that the raised camber link is giving us WAY more steering/cornerspeed and better tire wear. I have my theories as to why, but we will save that for another day

lighter oil in the front is something we decided to try again and it seems to work pretty well

Thanks, Mini-Dub - I'm very interested.

However, changing the spur, will cause the motor to be moved sligthly more. In a car like the HPI pro2, it was up/down, the motor changed. So here the idea was to use a spur as large as possible, because that lowered the motor, thus lowered the CG.

In the MI2, the movement is front/rear, and since I dont have the car yet, I cant make any recommendations. I would assume, that moving the motor forward, will give sligthly more steering. But since it's rotating, there's more into it, than just moving dead weight forward

PW I am assuming that you are drilling the new holes on the tower? What is the main difference from the stock towers to the carpet. I need some corner speed bad.

Jon and I ran the set-up at SoCal tonight and it was pretty darn good. We both added a little more droop to the front end. Jon ran the alloy rear hubs and I ran the stock plastic rears. Jons car seem to scrub a lot of corner speed from the rear end dumping. I felt the same with my car when I ran the same firm inserts that he ran. I switched to a medium insert earlier and it was smoother with more flow around the corners. Car turned in very well. Never been that good there before. Feels like the front end is getting its mechanical grip. Did not have to brakes .

So on the set-up sheet Paul, you have plastic rear hubs listed. Is this correct and not the AE rear hubs? BTW, nice paint job.

Lookin' good PW.

A little more work with that setup at SoCal, maybe mess with the inserts like Donny said, I think it'll be strapped there.

I need a little help on setup guys. I can run times that are up to 4/10s per lap faster with these old 32s (first 2 pics) than I can with a fresher set of RP30/C27s (3rd pic) I know that the heat makes a difference track was 140 or so. But others at my track run fast times on the C27s so it's not just that. My question is what do I need to do to my setup to free it up the way the old 32s do.

Yes. New holes in the carpet tower. The differences are they are lower so the upper shock location is lower. All the upper mounts are in different spots giving some different shock geometries, and the comber link locations are different.
