Default New front end

Put the new front end on last night and ran a few packs today. The car was driving a little rough at first but thanks to the many easy to adjust features on the NFE I was matching my best lap times by the third pack. I see this as a success since on practice nights laps times are usually off by .2 to .3 of a second compared to race days. Hopefully this means that I'll improve my best lap times next race meeting on Jan 2nd.

I too noticed the extreem amount of up travel the NFE has and wished that the was some kind of limiter. I needed to adjust the front ride height frequently at first but after a few runs the flex plates settled in and held a consistant front ride height.

Best of all the car really handles the bumps on our carpet track without upsetting the chassis like they used to.

Thank you Jason!

I used a longer screw in the forward hole of the base plate. This screw comes up and just clears the lower arm. A flanged nylock nut on the screw overlaps the lower arm and can be adjusted to control the amount of suspension up-travel.
