Hey Bob thanks for the info will try it tonight at Pratice.

just a quick question,

With a bumpy track should should I go softer on the springs and higher on the oil weight. or softer in both. the rear end seems fine, the front seems to be bumping around a bit.

Softer on the springs and heavier on the oil will really slow down the reaction a lot. I'd try running the same oil first with a softer spring. This way the dampening will stay the same but the rebound will be less and that's what causes the bounce on a bumpy track. If it's still not enough, go to the next weight up on the oil.

More droop/up travel in the front. That will fix that right up.

But consider how much droop you have in the rear as well. Maybe your transfering too much weight forward and its not coming back quick enough.

Probably not such a need at this point, as the E.C is pretty sorted

I know Jason's looked into it. But he's busy with other stuff right now. Plus, he'll only make a chassis if there's something that can be improved. So a few things would need to be tried and tested before anything would be done.

Jason won't make a chassis unless he can find a genuine improvement. Last time I talked to him he said he couldn't think of anything to change on the Rubber or Foam car.

Like Jon said he is concentrating on cars that need help
