Yes, I only have one of each coming this week so i can paint and take pictures of them all. I will probably do a pre-order on them next week and then bring them in from the factory. I am sure all of the OFNA GTV2 and IGT guys will eat them up!

- Serpent yellow springs in front, shocks laid down.
- 800 shock oil (AE)
- 2 stage pistons all around, bigger bleeder hole on caps all around
- ride high 8mm rear after pushing down, 7mm front after pushing down
- Gearing is 16/20 pinions and 45/41 spurs. 10/43 bevel gears
- Roll Centers high Front and Rear
- 3.5 degrees camber rear at ride high
- 2 degrees camber front at ride high
- Stock rear toe plate, toe = 3 degrees
- 0 degree toe front
- Stock Anti-Roll Bars front and rear

Pretty similar to my setup except:
  • stock front springs in the rear (20lb)
  • TeamC hards in the front
  • 1500/1100 fluids (high grip, normally 1k)
  • middle Roll centers
  • same camber
  • 2* toe out

This is my high grip setup, my next event is a low grip parking lot at Circuit of the Americas. So alot of things will change and will be closer to what you are running. The car likes soft rear springs for the most part. For my starting setup in Austin I am going with:
  • stock front springs
  • super soft rear springs
  • 100k/10k dif fluids
  • lay down front shocks
  • stand up rear shocks
  • not sure about roll centers yet, will wait until i get there
  • ride height will depend on surface but im going to see how low i can get away with!

oh ... that would be nice to go to. Not sure if I can get the car ready for then though .....

Is the track close to you? My nearest track is a little over two hours away. Makes testing time a little difficult....
