Thanks, the car was good, how'd you hear? I took two clicks of dual rate out for the main to run a more conservative race. Still made the first big mistake all weekend . If you guys have any questions let me know....

I would like to post that Keven Herbets set up from the birds has yet to be posted; but your race this weekend was posted the week after

Also why do most of the associated set ups call for 2k or less rear diff oil?

Thanks.
That was a very nice run. Car looked excellent! Is there a setup sheet in the works; I want to compare
I went with Yoke Blue/Blue for springs and half sauce and that seemed to work well. I'm gonna try different pistons next time out.

Andrews' car is nice and smooth...glad he decided to come back out to play with us this season.

Andrew Cartright,

Congrats on the big win Sunday. I stuck around to watch your main and you put on a good show. Hope I can get my 6.2 hooked up someday as good as you got yours working. I saw you posted your setup. Thanks for sharing.

It was fun to watch you take the win. Awesome Job man!

Was the 6.2 mainly developed on carpet or Asphalt?

That is a good question for Bob and the AE engineers.

So far in the stable of cars I currently drive the 6.2 is the best balanced for both carpet and asphalt. It seems to have widest window of flexibility with the parts it comes with. You don't need optional parts aside of springs/oil to get the car setup for either surface.
