Will do Alan, my setup is simular to the one posted on this form but i do have some things differant.

right now the buggy is hooked up the only place where im gitting beat is in the center of the corners, it has a mid corner push, i was thinking about switching the front swat bar to try to correct this. every other place on the track the car is hooked. ive tried to switch oils and shock positioning and i have as good as its been. I just need a tenth or two an i will be winning races.

if 1 toe out
that could cause the mid corner push

kevin from australia team said:
"
If you go from zero toe on arms to 1 degree toe out on arms, it will provide more turn in on turns but will reduce the mid to exit steering.
It's very good where you need quick reacting steering, but the downside is it can make the car a little wandery down the straight and can be a little aggresive.
so stay with insert 1, or 0.75 In "

. . . so you are at 5ooo Front, 7ooo Center, 2000 Rear .

2000 in the rear should help rotation. I would post you hole set up. What wheel base are you running?

I think with the first e-mail/post its pretty clear. I don't think anyone would publish words like that unless their intent was clear. As a business owner, you aren't going to do something to scare away business, especially accidentally by "minced" words...

While this is good news, It makes me very suspicious. It makes it clear to me that OCM ltd could pull the plug at any time.

So, I'm not sure I want to continue with OCM at this point.

Again, I hold nothing against Alan, he's done nothing but a great job!

OCM will never pull the pin on the US Market, the business that you guys have created is just too large to throw away.
I think the biggest thing for you guys in the US, is the fact that Didian (Owner) is moving over there.
That's gotta show OCM's Commitment to the US Market, plus I secretly think he's looking forward to trying out some proper US style tracks...lol

You might test a longer wheel base, should help center - off. It will not feel as responsive on turn in. I am running large spacer in front of hub and small spacer in rear.

Soapy, 2008 should be good. The Evo is just a great car for the money.
