I'm running sportsman stock.

Jon - one of them IS about that old and it's obvious that it's been abused (I "inherited" it when I bought another car. . .)

2~3 packs tops... the best runs seem to be the 1st two runs.. 3rd run is OK ... 4 run they turn into Dog Squeez ....

Guys are finding the same thing at the track I race at. Reedy Race will be interesting. Guys that make the A within the first two runs will get to run freshies for all the mains.

I have been finding the Grip of the RP's a bit better than the CS tires .. but I have yet to test the RP tires on a slightly dusty surface.. .. this is where the CS tire seems to shine...

It's an evolution of a solid design, valued by people who realize that performance is not a by-product of how much machined aluminum and plate carbon-fiber you have.

But the car is rolling quite a bit, I think, and it is very soft. I'm trying to figure out how to take the incredible "hooked" feeling and transfer it to a bit stiffer setting (which should carry speed better. . .) [/B]
You may be able to solve the problem by simply playing with roll centre shims.

We started off with the No 3 shims everywhere. The car was hooked onm fast sweepers but slow and lazy on tight kinks and turns. We then went the other way and ran it with No 1 shims all round. It suddenly became slow round the fast sweepers and excellent in the niggly infield. I have now put the No 2 shims all round and hope to give it a try later this week.

Will let you know. Incidentally we run AE green - soft - springs with 40 oil all round, so our springing is quite a bit softer than yours. This is for grippy asphalt.

John

would you think of mixing your shims?

Say, 2's in the front and 3's in the rear or something? Would that perhaps give you a good combination of the two?

And, yeah, green with a thick oil. . .hmmm

i'm always mixing shims under the sus blocks....sometimes i even run different shims under both blocks at either end of the car (if you know what i mean)

i don't think there is any real answer to what works best..just play around with different shims and see what works and what doesn't.
