got the number....Phil contacted me in minutes after I posted...

I've dismantled the car...found my problem...
spool cup was damaged and bore into the spool itself.... waiting on a new spool to come in.....hopefully this Friday.

front end is all shimmed up and solid...belts changed to low friction...
shock re-done....
TI ball studs being added...
I'm coming this weekend to make things happen.

remember it's doubled up this weekend...down with Perez

Is cutting the front and rear wishbones something you would only do under low-med traction conditions or does it improve the handling all the time? I'm wondering if I want to keep a set of intact wishbones for things like snowbirds, IIC, Cleveland where the traction is outrageous.

Who is running a spool on carpet,tried it in mine a few times and always end up back on a diff with 2.5 million in it.To me just too edgy cant push the car hard with the spool,but can with diff,run spool outside no problem.
Spool makes the inital steering too much in the top of the a finals,just windering if i should give it a go to see if theres any more i can get out the car,only thing i can see is that spool gives little more inital steering,but the diff gives little more in the middle and exit...

I only run a spool...(carpet)
find it gives more initial steering, works for me.
test back to back and see which is better for your driving.

if it's too snappy up front then play with the camber links to get the right feel.

For me a spool is more push entry and more steering on exit. I switched from a spool to a diff(filled with cleaning clay) and went a 1/10 faster and the car was more consistent overall and gave slightly more entry and didn't seem to effect exit at all.

This was running modified.

Definitly! You don't want flexing wishbones in high grip conditions! So keep them uncut for every high grip event!

That's interesting because I thought front spool gives more entry steering..

Granger's carpet default setup. Does that work good in high traction carpet? What do you guys think about thicker diff oil in the rear than 2000? When I drove on high traction carpet last time, the car seemed pushy a bit at exit so I thought maybe thicker diff would help.

A balldiff (or geardiff with a soft oil) or a one way in front will give more entry steering, because the front tires can have different rotation speeds. Therefore you will lose speed exiting under throttle.

I'm running this currently verbatim on a high traction track and it's working quite well..
