Drop me an Email, (jkerr0043@cox.net) I'll send you what I ran at the Jimmy Babcock race and most of the day Saturday. I tried something a little different for the main and I'm not sure if I really liked it much. lap times stayed almost exactly the same but the car was weird. I'm going to be trying something totally different next week. We've got the car fast with the setup we have for SoCal. We just don't have it quite as dialed as some of the other cars out there yet. So we're trying some drastic stuff we haven't done yet. It's probably going to either be dialed, or completely suck! We'll see next weekend.

Problem is, won't really know if it works until qualifying. Thats when the track changes too much. That has been the biggest obstacle there. The cars are really good right up till that first round, then BAM, the cars either push really bad or screw themselves into the ground.

RFrancis, Looks kind of similar to a track at "Halifax" that we race at in the UK. The grip is good there, but it is very flowing like your track.

We haven't raced there yet this year with the production EC, so it's hard to be sure. Best guess i would say would be Teemu's setup from our national last year. It is on the Schumacher web site under the "Mi2" section (note not EC). However, it should be fine. Put the rear wishbones at "mid/long", rear camber link in lower position on tower, and inner hole on rear hub. The springs are very close to kit whites.

This should be very close on a production car.

Ok im looking to get back into sedan. My decision has come down to between the schumacher ec rubber version and the surikan/hara cyclone. Gimme your thoughts. Parts im screwed on either one so that is not an issue lol.

Clint where you at bud, I need you to spit your knowledge on the schuie lol

Both excellent cars, both are very fast. Cyclone seems to be based around the one way where EC is a spool car. Not sure about Hot Body's but if you want parts from Schuie, just pick up the phone.

I don't have any experience driving a Cyclone so I can't really comment on that car. But the EC is by far the best car I've driven. Especially outdoors. It's easy to make and drive fast, it's very adjustable and fairly easy to work on. Plus I like to think that we have the best team support here on the message boards of any car.

I'm pretty sure there isn't one. I run 7x1's all the time and have run 6 turn motors and never had a problem.

There is no limit. If anyone makes the Keyence can run it. 6T & 7T motors are no problem.

I think the stock EC setup (without the sway bars possibly) would work well. That setup works really well on most asphalt conditions. Not sure about concrete though, but that's where I would start.
