Use a gauge to set your droop, then once it is set, lay your car flat on the setup board and check the height of your wishbones from a certain point with some calipers. This ensures it is set even left to right. Having it set accurate left to right is just as important as it is front to rear.

All adjustments are important. To me, the left to right accuracy is more important than front to rear. If the left to right isn't equal you will have different handling characteristics for turning right and left. This can be a real handfull to drive!

Nice!

Why dont you wire your own car dude? Scotty does a nice job, but dang, doing it your self is half the fun isnt it?

Are you going to race at the next race? Throw the 3.5 in, dont mess around

No one can pull the 4.5 so why bother???? I will more than likely be at the first race in 3 weeks. I will however be at the next Norcal race in two weeks. I got all of my honey do's done and I've been out of racing long enough. Gotta get some track time in.

Wiring is over rated so I leave that up to the norcal pro. I paint and he does wiring

I flew down to your neck of the woods and waited until you went to the bathroom and took some pics of your ride and hustled on back home to claim that wiring job as my own. I did forget my sun glasses in your pits so if you could be so kind as to send those back it would be greatly apprecited Man it's too early in the morning. I better go eat before I post again

Wiring may change if I go to the Futaba radio and the faast/fasst (sp) system. The reciever is a little bigger. I'm tired of holding on for the Ko system.

Its FASST

With a big RX in there, how are you going to keep it all on the chassis? My Sphere TC is a tight fit as it is... And you cheated, no PT on your car, that adds wires
