Yes, basically the same as an uncut knuckle. He doesn't like the extra steering lock.

Hi All,

I see an interesting modification on the front sway bar linkage, I imagine it helps removing tweak?
Congrats on the great result!

Exactly, it is a much more efficient and precise way to do so.

I did play around with steering throw a lot, and found for my driving style I didn't need the extra throw so I did glue washers back on. At the Reedy Race when grip came way up I actually had a round where my dual rate was 60% with 15% expo. Never run numbers like those before but the car just had a ton of steering.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

Hello Randy,
normally how many degrees do you use when you steer?

I have actually never checked how many degrees of steering I use. Dual rate is really just something that I use as a final adjustment after I get my setup where I want it. When grip is low I usually use more steering travel and when grip is high I will use less.

No worries will say if not sure between cars I will highly recommend the D06 love the car no extra parts required to make it go fast like other brands require before racing, had a big hit on Friday night to where the 3mm plastic shims on the suspension arm had disappeared and a bent suspension pin raced the B final dualing with Nutters for first place when I didn't even notice the damage the car went well.

Not sure if I will be down tomorrow night as I have been in hospital with chest pains and I had stripped the car to clean bearings and parts and still haven't had time to put back together.

Hi Randy,

Who makes the red Shims you are using?
They look like they match the Vbc red nicely.

Cheers

Any news on the release date for the new anti Roll bar setup?
Does It require the use of new front Roll bars?
