Are you ever going to get to stay home from more than a week at a time?

Jon,
I went out for another run using the PW setup and it was still quite taily even when the tyres come up to temp anything you can suggest maybe raising the rear roll centre 1mm from standard.

I switched the blue springs on front and silver on back had. Took the antidive out of the front and went to 27s and mishark is dialed. Still no ft. riaser plate. will try that later Im staying with what works.

thanks Jon taking out the washers up front and going to a lighter oil helps the car alot!

Default Coned Spacer

Hey Guys,

I'm not sure how but i seemed to have misplaced my spacer (long) for my spur gear assembly and was wondering if anyone knew of a temporary way to replace that part until i get a new one.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

R.

Is it loose on entry, mid, or exit?

Add some front droop. This will help the car transfer more weight to the rear on power. Also, watch the attitude of the car and have someone else watch the car. If it looks like it's rolling over too much or not rolling over at all, there could be other things that need to be addressed.

Far from a pro! But I try to help. I've been trying to get away from using antisquat. Only if it's really needed. Try the droop first then if that doesn't work, do the anti squat. What droop are you running in the front now?

Go to 3.5 in the front and try it. Then try .5mm antisquat. 1mm max. I'm actually running 3.5mm droop in the front and 4.5 in the back right now.

Hey Jon is it better to use the stock raiser plate in the front when using the BMI chassis?

I've experienced the same kind of problems, but the car have been very consistant on power ever since I attached the riser plates and started using a bit higher roll centers, +.8mm in the front and +1.6mm in the rear. So you might wanna try that. I'm not using as much droop as before either, 4,5mm in the front and 3mm in the rear.

I'm not sure why these things have made the car so much better, maybe John has an idea?
