Well thanks for all they help guys. My problem is fixed.

Most of it was excessive play in the entire car and in the diffs. The CVD's played a part in the problem by the cross pin hitting the hub during a full turn. Also the steering rack cause a bit of the problems as well.

Thanks again,
Paul

I will make it out to socal if the wife don't freek if not i am going to try to make it out to La Mirada tomorrow...

If i don't run tonight I might just stop by to hang out for a bit...
Seriously though dude. The swaybars make the car come to life! The car becomes more stable, with an added "feel" of security. I set TQ lastnight in Pro Stock, with a 25/5:01.xx. Which was about six seconds faster than second place. But in the main, I got "a little help from my friends" and ended up fifth or so.


I have confirmed that the thickest swaybar is 0.078in, not 0.080.


Scrad: I do believe that for carpet, you would want the stiffest chassis. I would assume the carbon kit, and some swaybars for the car. I also hear that the One-Way is not preffered on carpet, so you will not be needing one of those. Maybe all the different rear blocks for toe adjustment too.
Carbon kit: $69.99
Swaybars: $12.99(*2, front and back)
Aluminium rear blocks: $12.99(ea.)(depending on how many you want to get. Could range from two to three blocks. Circle, X 2, X 2.5)

Do they not make the toe-in block in Plastic? I dont' want alum. Guess I will have to take out the toe by using the Front block in the rear.

Where is the best place to get all the upgrades online? (sway bars, carbon kit, bumper, ect.) Are there any good sites that have all the upgrades listed on the same page?
