You could also try saucing 3/4 of the tire, and unscrewing the shock eyelet 1 more turn on the rear.

Take a look at pics of Todd Hodges car in his thread, by your setup I'm assuming you are running on carpet. Drill some holes in the front shock tower for your camber links so they have a high roll center. You may also want to shorten the links to get the car to roll in a little more as well.

The GPM front knuckle arms and cvds I have are blue. I like them.. Jason I have some questions. I see GPM list 3 different cvds? The Alloy ones.Which are the ones I have.The axle is polished. But I don't know what the axle is made of?(Alloy) Alloy + steel? Steel meaning steel axle? Then Steel set meaning the whole cvd is made of steel? Thanks

EddieO: Thats a good question. What colors do you prefer. They have blue, purple and silver.

NVisible: Do you have any information on the long belt kit to send to me? When our stuff are in stock we will list them on ebay too.

akrcracer: If your axles are polised they must be made of alloy. The alloy + steel means the axle is alloy, you can anodize it in any color. The rest is made of steel and is a natural silver color.

I've attached a picture for reference.
