But are you referring to actual steering throw(ie: end point adjustment)? Or the dual rate "curve"?
The actual throw. I run -25% curve everywhere.

Shim What exactly?

Dave.

have you guys seen the pictures of the Pilot race for the Asian ATS series ?

Looks like new Arms, C-Hubs and Yokomo like steering blocks in Juhos car.

He mentioned that the new suspension parts improved the car a lot.

Run the new Asso Gear Diff the first time yesterday. Assembly was real smooth and the parts seem to be real good quality.

Filled the Diff with wt30 oil. It felt still very tight comparing to the yokomo Diff which I am running with 60wt or 80wt.

Run it about 7 packs yesterday and it seems that there is little to none leaking. Will take it apart and check for wear this week.

So far I am very pleased with the performance.

I'm still rather new to Onroad racing, but am absolutely exstatic about this new car. Had my third race with it and continually strive to improve. Would like some advice on which adjustment would be preffered to mitigate an off throttle push during initial entry to corners (currently considering going to silver rear springs vs. green/ or reposition front top shock mounting position to 1 hole position inward). I hope not to drastically change other performance characteristics of car in other areas (ie. stability mid corner or corner exit). Conditions are on a soda treated asphalt track with med traction and I am adjusting from box recommended setup. Appreciate any advice you can provide.

Jason, that initial push is from the spool. You will not really get rid of it because of the way spools are. So you know who I am, im the one that moved back and is friends with Robert Jaecks.

Yep, A-Main Final 1 showed Juho extremely close to Ronald.

Well, Umino definitly is some help, but its mainly the Driver winning the race. Ronald is a good friend to some of the guys at out local racetrack and comes around for practicing pretty often. Needless to say he is holding the Track record for Modified on our tight but fast High Grip Carpet Indoor Track. Its absolut amazing what talent Ronald has.

have I mentioned he is holding the track record driving Marcels HB TCX

Yes Roland is really flying at the moment it seems even Marc can't stop him This is why I think Juho's result is fantastic.

Thanks, Jhock, will try a few adjustments (one at a time) and see if I can make it a little better, when I head out to practice this Wed.
