Thanks,
Yes and Yes. It plants the rear ALOT better. That's the only location I run it.

No I haven't. My buddy Mike Czech took those photos. Other than the shorter arms and larger shocks, the rear tower is different.

Once the new lightened spur gets in the country, I am going to get all of the lightened driveline components and go to town. Then do some filing to try and lighten some other items.

Hi Speedy2
Here is a link to the section in the thread where we were discussing the 7th hole. you will be able to see the photos I posted.

This extra hole changes the rollcentre of the rear suspension. You will find that it makes the car feel more forgiving allowing you to catch the rear end when it steps out and it will feel more controlable during a slide

i participated in the last race of a 3 race shoot-out yesterday. i only attended the first and the last race, i missed the second one. i hadn't run my buggy for a long time because i had been fooling with my touring cars, so i was a little rusty with my 1/8 skills. the weather was great, but the track was pretty bad. the surface was pretty hard with gravel and rocks in a few places. there was a fine, silty dust on top of the hard pack, and the track owner didn't blow it off. the more we ran on it, the worse it got. he didn't water the track but two times, once before the heats and once before the C main. but i learned to adapt to the conditions. there was really no good tire, but i used K2s most of the day as they did the best for me. the layout was basically a horse shoe shape, with 3 jumps on the inside of the "shoe" and a HUGE sweeper and high speed straight away on the outside. most people ran out of gas in the five minute heats, so we had to change to 4 minute heats and eventually mains. you were WOT most of the time anyways!

because the surface was so slick (like cement with sand on top), i raised my roll center considerably to try to gain some more lateral traction. that seemed to work well, as i took the TQ spot. by the time the mains were up, the track was deplorable. pretty rutted up and really slick. the track owner of my home track and biggest competition had a leg up on me with his WS7II, and i only had an S5. he had the advantage on the straights and sweeper, but he had to be careful not to run out of gas. it was the mains, and i told my pit man to put me at the very back of the starting line because i knew the inevitable first corner pile up was to come. plus, i always do better when i am trying to catch up than when i am trying to hold a lead. well, the pile up happened and i scooted on the outside of the carnage and easily took the lead. once i got about 1/4 lap lead on the pack, i nose-dived and flipped my buggy, which cost me some time. but luckily the turn marshal was fast and i got back on my feet and lead the race for the rest of the time! i lapped everybody once, and almost lapped the second place buggy at the very end.

TQ and 1st place, not bad for racing at a track for the very first time, and being a little rusty with my buggy skills.

Just wondering what anti-squat everybody is running in the rear. And if I remember correctly less in the rear for bumpy tracks and more for smooth tracks?

Most people run the one that comes with the car, which I'm pretty sure is 2*.

suspension setup, tires, clutch setup, track conditions all play a huge part in how any buggy handles. It is hard to say with out you having a specific situation and without giving us all of your info about the situation. But in general i would say the CR FTE is very tunable to any track conditions I have found very few tracks that I could make the buggy work reasonable well. if you have a specific problem post up all the info and let the guys on here have a look.
