In high-grip just flip the springs it moves the bite. Other than that if you sauce your whole front go to half and its golden.

The Gate was high grip at the Halloween classic.

Default Motor Mount Tweak

Hi,

Im rebuilding my car and having a bit of trouble with the motor mount. When I tighten the forward screw's in any order it will tweak the rear left of the car!

Anyone have any ideas what I need to do?

I will order a new motor mount and topdeck support but these look straight to me..

Thanks,
Keith

Had the same problem myself, tried a new motor mount and still it was tweak on the rear left of the car so I decided to buy a new chassis and now it's as flat as a pan

The pictures I saw in the BD5 thread showed them using a steel ruler.
