Doug,

Changed the setup from what I sent you the other week. Running the 0 Pivot block in the front and went to a softer swaybar. The car now comes out of the corner better. Still has good turn-in.

Mark

Spool is a solid front axel. It gives you more pull comming out of the turns... kinda twitchy going in though...

the oneway is the same as any other oneway. Front wheels can freewheel while offpower, and are both 'locked' onpower.

I'm using the spool right now in stock foam on a big carpet track. I haven't tried a diff yet, but plan to on Friday or Saturday. The spool's working great though, tons of pull out of the corner, and lots of steering on entry.

Default Question About the PRP towers

Hi guys, I would like to ask you if you use all the holes in the rear tower for the shocks?. Also What are the holes that you prefer for the camber links and the shock positions???

I just got mine last weekend and I still need to do some testing. I ran the stock locations from my existing set up with the PRP shock towers.
