Thanks

I felt the truck a little loose too but it was faster than the 1.0 if I can hang onto it. I didn't get to mess with it much but a practice day will take care of that. I need to move the link up on the rear tower too

Yes. I'm using the new Dunford setup, posted on this thread, but I'm using a thinner front sway bar. It's good, but low speed cornering on a tight clay track is not good. I'm trying to figure out if there is something wrong with my truck or if it's a setup issue. I'm using Suburbs f/r and they are fairly new.

In my case this setup has tons of steering. Low and high. Running M3 Tazers. With the thinner front sway it should turn even beter. Did you check your toe out?

SCT Pro and the 4000 now and had the 4700 and both are awesome...the 4000 is alittle easier on temps and you can play with gearing alittle more or atleast i have been able to change it with out much temp difference but the 4700 is alittle more finicky...you'll love the SCT Pro and 4000 combo

outside it was a blast(the 4700 that is) but even geared at 13t it was WAAAAAAY to much for indoor or a small track to where the 4000 is much more controllable and smoother but the 4000 is still no slouch(i'll try to get a vid of the 4000 but it wont be on a track

Finally got the 2.0 on the track yesterday. Ended up 2nd to another 2.0. Truck had a ton of off power steering but a pushed on power not real bad but enough to have to back off on throttle a tad. How can I fix this push without sacrifice off power steering? Should I try the Dunford/Casper setup?

No doubt. Been quiet in here lately. I guess no news is good news. Everyone must be out having fun with their trucks!

So, I am putting Ryan's new set up on the truck exactly the way he has it. I'm even going to setup my RX8 like his. 35 timing, 7 drag break, 80 current limiter, with 14 tooth pinion. Can't wait to try it. I'm getting ready for the AMS 4.0 race next week.

Anyone else here going to AMS 4.0 with there 2.0?

I have the exact setup minus the rx8 settings and the shocks, i am still running the 2 hole 1.3 pistons with 32.5 and 30 and loving it so far. Easy to drive, and believe it or not the .5mm shims seemed to make a difference.
