Ran my BMI cyclone on the rug tonight with 6 of the top 20 at the IIC in stock and it was awesome. Had 8 packs on the car and was tq after the first round. Its a good setup for med-high bite rug. Ran a different setup than scheffler did at the IIC, if anyone wants to try it let me know. I have to make a setup sheet.

The car is sick, I definatley think its my favorite touring car to date.

Hi,

Do you mean the aluminium pivot blocks? If so, there are 3 different colours so you might need to be a little more specific?

Cheers

I tried Marcos J setup ie ;6mm droop rest similar to what you suggested 1.5mm pivot blocks 5/5.5 ride height.
I liked it but it seemed to not want to straighten up out of the corners almost like to little castor.Maybe to much roll?
I increased the ride height because I was to lazy to change droop settings this helped, should I increase droop/ front dampening or any other suggestions

Thanks Jason

6mm front droop will give you alot of on power steering.if the track is tight,it will cause oversteer.the reason for this is that it does not allow as much weight to transfer to the rear of the car under acceleration.it will keep the weight on the front tires and it will keep holding the corner.try 5mm droop on the AE guage and see how you like it. it should give you what your looking for.

its not the roll or castor.i adjust the front droop to control exactly what you are talking about.i think you will be very pleased.

This is mod that I am running Marcos the 3.5 is fast, I felt like I needed a bit more steering out of the corners Jason.
I feel you are saying to control the roll use droop not harder springs.
Hey Marcos where you using 3.5 rotors in the 4.5 & 5800 if so how did they go. ie power and braking as there is a big difference in brakes with the 3.5.

I use the new rotors in all my motors(3.5,4.5,5.5,5800) and they are great , alot better drag brake.
