if youre ever at the track and want to try something for nimbleness: try adding 1mm to the front and rear of the side links. leave the football alone. adding those shims is equivalent to raising your roll center. keep in mind that you will have to raise your side spring 1mm to compensate for the higher side link!
So I promised my wife I wouldn't go racing for a month after IIC because I spent so much time at the track practicing for it.....but that doesn't mean I can't wrench at home!!!
The minimum weight at IIC for an F1 car was 1050 grams...I came it at 1092. I have since completely redone my electronics so I did not have to use the winglets, and eliminated a ton of wire. Now I am well under weight at 1020 grams, so I want to use the weight to my advantage.
I plan on putting the 10 gram weights on each winglet as you recommended, but I was wondering if you run any type of diffuser? If so, which one? If not, I was thinking about putting 10 more grams on the rear pod. Do you have any recommendations? The rear has never really felt loose on carpet, but I figure a little more wouldn't hurt.
Also, thanks for the idea of using a female ballstud to get the 6mm worth of spacers under the rear shock mount...had the pieces in my parts assortment to get that done.
Now just have to wait two more weeks to try it out......
