you think the mrx-5 will be out soon? because 1/8th takes priority to most companies who build them and the 1/8th races are coming up first.

Harry, Good job at the WinNats.
I agree but for different reasons. I have tried Swauger set-ups and hate them. We are obviously very different drivers. When I have tried his set-ups I end up with a car that has too much on-power steering and not enough off-power steering. So I actually need MORE turn in, not less.

I actually have found Paul Ciccarillo's set-up help more useful for me. This is no knock against Mike, he's great but we drive too differently to swap set-ups. I would be curious to see what Ralph was running just to get an idea of his set-up philosophy.

I really like the amount of steering Mike's 08 Nats setup provides. My style of driving would tend to over rotate the car in low speed sections so I used the R rear uprights and upper arms to help plant the rear end.

And Sean, if you don't have off-power steering...stay on the power!

From what I've heard, Mike's 2009 WinNats setup is very different from what we've seen before. More body roll and faster corner speed.

Haha, I'm glad to see you guys using grey springs. Maybe now Pooh won't give me so much crap for using them. In Pooh's book, if it aint white, it aint right.
