Just want to update on my first race with this car. I joined 2 classes, Pro stock (controlled motor LRP 10.5t boosted) and MOD class (with spec tyres). I TQ'ed and won both classes. The handling was very consistent even when the track temp was getting higher by mid day (I live in equatorial climate and its very hot), usually some of my previous cars will start to slide a bit at the rear by this time. At the end I m very happy and loving this car. Now, I m looking for to get another one (maybe the Orange LE one ) Below are some pic of my car and its medal.

Ran the new DCJ driveshafts today and I must say...wow!!! The car picked up a boat load of corner speed. Droped my fastest laptime by 3 tenths just by making that change... Now all I need are the 6 deg caster bloacks.

I've tested the Double-Joint CVD's on the Weekend, too.

No big difference for me and the same lap times as with stock CVDs ...

The car felts a bit smoother in hair chicanes, but no difference in lap times.

Hi,

Would hard arms, uprights and hubs etc normally be used on higher grip tracks ?

How does it effect the car when you add or remove shims from the baulkheads and likewise on the uprights and C hubs ?

Thanks.

Wild speculation on my part but I think they are if you go to the aluminum rear uprights or the front steering hubs the bearing pocket is too big for the stock bearings so you need these to make the kit bearings work. OR (more speculation) trying to save sprung weight by replacing the stock bearings with smaller ones in the stock plastic pieces........but I'm leaning more towards the first guess. (That's what Xray does as well).
