The biggest thing that stands out to me is the 5 degree castor blocks. I've had the Xenon front end on my mod car for testing, and I can tell you that there would be only extraordinary circumstances where 5 degrees would work (super high bite where super glue on front and rear tires arent working). Ten degrees is the standard, adjust camber to .5 degrees and your car should be money.

Cool

Out testing some new R1 power tonite

Also, Bruce sent me a softer set of A-arms to test
Surprising how noticeable a difference they make, not sharp enough of a feel for our conditions at TQ, but on a high grip track, they may be a very useful tuning option

Oh, and, the AE front foam bumper fits well with the new front end too

I know the front end is different to what most run but it shouldnt make that much difference.

So Tim, do you run the Speedmerchant or the CRC car?
