Is it just the sound recording or is your engine lean bogging a bit?

If the track is super bumpy like they described the car may be coming off the ground in sections allowing the engine to rev up for a split second.

Try 3 -hole piston with 400 CST oil and the soft spring (white / grayish color). Should help a lot.

Why not just use a camber link?

That's what I understand the next V10 will have....

Or you could have cut the aluminum to about the diameter of a body post and use plastic bushings front n rear to center the link......

Just do it like that. The pillow ball (the one from the sway bar) rides on the original upper arm pin and is secured with the grub screw

We thought of all those ideas,and all are good, but all we want to achieve here is a good stability of the low
wishbones (especially during highspeed turns) minimum flexibility and good durability of the whole rear system.
The camber can be set as far as -+ 3.5 degrees which is enough
The weight of each upper wishbone is 1.5 grams heavier than the stock and yes we can reduce this more.
This is for a test we want to do this Sunday but weather is bad so we have to wait
