What kind of luck have you guys had with using the 2.0mm chassis and the 1.6mm top plate with flex through the corner?

I need some serious help

I for the life of me can not get the wheels to come off the board at the same time.

I have made sure the Droop is correct, shock lengths correct, there is no tweak at all. however when I put a wrench under the front and lift, I can't get them to come up at the exact same time, It's extremely frustrating. Can anyone shed some light on why this could be?

I have used the professional tweak station, but find its garbage, I can't see the point in adjusting the shock collars to get it level, as doesn't that just throw the ride height out?

I am a complete newbie when it comes to car setup, however am spending a lot of time on it to get it right.

I look forward to some advice.

Regards
Nathan

Are you having the same problem on the rear or just the front?

The progressive 2.2-2.6 springs in the rear are strange. It's probably the most dramatic single change I've made to the car. Traction was a bit weird, so I'll need to test some more. The most noticeable thing was it made the nose of the car slide around a lot when I'd brake into the turns. I tend to point and shoot, especially when the car won't turn, so it wasn't a great option. We'll see how it goes when there's more grip/steering and I can smooth things out.

They do seem to improve grip mid-corner.

It looks like Groskamp has the fastest 5 min qualifier.
Lemieux is up there running well we will see how the race goes.
He has TQed a couple rounds like mentioned above.
It is nice to see the diversity of manufacturer's represented. I even saw Sakura and Team Magic represented

Best time 00:16.948 (2) (09.06.2012) Ataushi Hara 00:16.948 (2) Ataushi Hara
Practice 17 05:15.802 (09.06.2012) Federico Veronesi 17 05:15.802 Federico Veronesi
Qualification 18 05:12.241 (09.06.2012) Jilles Groskamp 18 05:12.241 Jilles Groskamp
Final - -
