You had to bring that up again huh. That was crap losing to a two color rattle can paint job and another one that was all sticker's. That's why I will never enter that contest again. They play favorite's. I really like the rule that you had to paint the body yourself yet just about everyone there had their bodies painted by that one girl Oh well......I still have my 2nd place to Charlie B. trophy

reduce the rear toe-in block to 2.5
thanks dude. im going to print this out and look it over. ive seen your cars they're always very stable in low traction tracks like Corona and LM.

whats the suggested rear plate thing for medium to low asphalt track conditions? Right now i have th aluminum rear plate like the WCE kit would include. Between the FRP plate, the carbon fiber plate, and a modded plastic cyclone S rear plate, whats the best to use in this scenario and what are the disadvantages if any?

anything but the aluminum would benefit you. the plastic S deck with the webbing cut out or the FRP plate work would work well. it won't give you a drastic traction change, but it will allow the rear to flex a little more than the aluminum piece.
