Was debating going back to Kyle's setup and try 9-12 caster with lower camber.

black CRC carpet...11 sec lap time down to 10.4 for fastest guy.
As mentioned you could add more rear droop. Some toe-out up front. Reduce Ackermann (move bell crank forward), I liked this at 5280. May not have been good at Snowbirds with the greasy grip though. Mark Burt was the fastest with a Roche F1. He qualified 4th. When i looked at his car it was rather conventional, meaning like most other F1 setups.

Going to recheck my droop and go over car tomorrow to test based on some of the recommendations.

Thank all!

Using a pair of pliers or something else you prefer. Hold the pivot ball bushing by the part that fits into the carbon arm. Squeeze with a fair amount of pressure and move the pivot ball around with the M3 wrench. Move the pliers to a new location of the pivot ball bushing. Repeat this until you've gone all the way around the pivot ball bushing, about 5 different locations.
I bought a used rapide and ran it for the first time. It was easy and fast, with a little understeer. Anyway, the pivot balls do not move freely, so I want to try the above procedure. But I can't get those bushings/pivot balls out. Before I break one, is there any trick to remove them without destroying them? Thanks. Otherwise I love this kit!!

Just built a Rapide F1-2016 for a friend. Rear axle adjusters are on the low setting and with Pit Shimizu 575 rear tires, the rear ride height is at 4.2mm measured at the back of the pod. What do you have to do to get it up to 5mm to run outdoor or even on black carpet ?
