Default Setup Sheet Bullshit

Those setupsheet are made tricky blocking the function to store the content you fill in.

Many thanks to ADOBE offering that feature and shame on Serpent using it.

But there is a way around as you can print it after you have filled something in using a PDF converter to print. There is a whole bunch of free ones in the net.

Unfortunately you cannot change that any more as the functionalety of the original document does get lost by prining it.

Some of the free converter offer the function to add comments to an existing PDF.
This can be used to note small changes right away instead of starting from the scratch everytime.

Of course you can use all of that nice and shiny features if you have the full ADOBE package on your computer, but if you do not have it already it will cost you a fortune.

Does anyone have Paolo's setup from Byron's? I was there and his car was hooking up nicely so I'm very interested to see his setup and try some of the settings.

Curious - if I open the setups from my work PC all the data fills in - if I open on an I-Pad they are blank - suspicious you may be seeing the same thing and someone with substantially more computer knowledge than I will need to explain and/or solve.

It is an easy on Rick.

You just need to download apple app for adobe acrobat.

The apple products does not come with a pdf reader. They are free in app store.

I had same issue and was scratching my head at first.

I've seen some people run the offroad buggy rear suspension setup with the shocks on the other side. I was wandering what does this gives you and if some of you have tried it.

The 2.0 conversion from the buggy is wider, wich give you more stability.
I dont know if you guys have notice that the cobra is narrower in the rear,
So people are sacrificing corner speed for stability.

Got my new kit, this makes two Cobra GTs under my roof now woo! It was asked earlier what were the new bits so I'll keep a close eye out for differences between my original kit.

Build time

Thanks for supporting your LHS Ty. That doesn't mean you get any mercy on the track.
