The VBC springs (front and side), how do they line up with the AE stuff?

Max, you are running Pink/Pink in 17.5? I assume this is club racing on a lower bite track?

Max thanks for the info, can you clarify the stock length upper arm setting - the kit calls for the 1.5mm upper arm spacer and a 4mm gap between the upper arm and upper arm eyelet. I'm not sure what that equates to in camber but do you keep those same measurements or do you readjust the upper arm turnbuckle to keep camber at a specific measurement (when running the upper arm spacer or not)?

Also - what do you run for toe? Same for stock and mod?

yes it was on low bite. I dont run stock very much. Those are the only tires I had. Ehrlich is running stock this weekend in Minnesota. He will post his setup when he gets back. I hear a lot of people are running Black front and orange rear.

For the upper arm spacing run it so the outside of the caster block is even with the inside of the bulkhead (if that makes sense). I don't run the turnbuckle at a specific length. Just whatever gets me the right amount of camber.

For toe I try to run as close to zero as I can get

For lubing the kingpins and gooping the tubes, I have always used Shurlube. Anyone know how the colors would be classified by weight?

"I like my twelth scale like I like my women: Black, with chamfered edges."

Thanks for running with us Dave. Car looked blazing in stock, corner speed was a strong point. Good luck to VBC in the future!
