Korey, what profile did you use on the SPX ? Did you cut the rear plate ? Did you use the ATC posts ? Did you use new arms or old ?
Thanks for your time.

Korey: About the shock mounting positions, did you count it from the inside going out or vice versa?

Shock positions are based off what it says on a cyclone TC setup sheet. I think they count from the inside.

Yup, I tend to use the cut rear plate when the grip is really low. It just makes the car feel a little more stable.

BTW,Korey,great run at REEDY. Interesting setup to say the least.I can see how the slight but obviously effective changes to your setup from the norm would help free the car up to make the Jaco's work as well as they did for you.I am gonna try some stuff now that you have done so.Again,great job.
