You can copy the direct link from imageshack and use the button in the reply window to show the pic and not a thumbnail...


BTW Matt, noticing you use the short ackerman in all your setups. Even the larger tracks. Do you find steering too aggressive and you tone it down some place else?

Thanks much guys for the heads up on pics .

I just noticed that the short ackerman gave me more steering. I like a really responsive and free car so have never had a need to go back.

Thanks, was it a big change between the two? Might give it a try.

Congrats again on your wins.

Thanks once again matt.

Im trying to get just a tad more rear traction. I dont want it to be a drastic change, so im wondering which would be the smallest.

Softer rear springs (have black now, maybe try blue?)
Going down 2.5wt in rear shock oils
Less rear toe

Are you looking for forward traction or side-bite traction?

Hmm, a small bit of both, but mostly side to side...which was why i was thinking rear toe.

I would start by lowering the rear inner camber link to the #3 hole to help get more side bite, and droppung the rear shock oil by 2.5 will give you a tiny bit more on power rear weight transfer. But maybe Matt has a better recommendation.

Yes depending on your shock postition you can go in on the tower and it will mechanically make it softer

Thanks, will try the camber link too...

Ill hold off on the oil change for now and see what those do for me.

Thanks.
