I assume if we take the rear bumper off and stand the car vertically on it's rear end, using an RPM camber gauge should accurately measure the rear toe in on either side...used to do this with my Predator T1 to get it right...

Simon, You are correct, this car can have the rear toe checked in the same manner.

Default xxxs setup

i am racing on a tight track i think. about a 100ft straightaway. the track temp will be about 100 degrees, maybe less. it is a sedan road course in a parking lot. asphalt. i like to drive smooth but if needed will be aggresive. i have the graphite plus xxxs, not the standard one if that helps

I was pitting across from Todd at the Ca. state champs race and he was not using a servo saver,just a servo horn,but he can afford servos..

I personally run the stock servo saver with a extra spring on it.Even ran a servo saver at the ROAR Nat's running foam Modified..Not one problem with the steering.

Hi Brian,

Mark D.,I ran that set-up one two seperate day's once with traction layed down and once without(on practice day's are track doesnt use sugar water) .I would say it worked better when the track was sprayed,but still was pretty good without the traction added.As far as trying a spool,no I have not tried this with this set-up,cant make it to the Reedy race so I am practicing for National's w/oneway.Maybe this weekend I will give the spool a try.I am spending alot of time at my local track(which is a large 100x160 permanent track similar to the track in NC)working on all kinds of different set-ups,I will keep you posted.

Thanks,
Brian Jucha

Im going to try to make it out to NC. If I get a chance I will try the setup on another car this weekend in Roseville. I have not seen the track in NC- is it mainly radius turns and open?

The layout will probably be way more technical than it looks there.
