active shock towers are 🔥🔥 tried them on med/ high traction asphalt. Worked well with 6.75p in front and 1.2 front sway bar I also used MR33 400cst. Mike Gee your set up is awesome handles so good and these active shock towers really helped with traction and if you rode the curbs it didn't upset the car as much.

Any consensus on the new towers on a bumpy black carpet track?

I haven't hit the track yet but I did run my car up and down the street 2-3 times - typical residential asphalt, I do this just to make sure the car is squared up and there no issues before club racing the up coming weekend.

Normally my car slides/spins out when ripping the trigger or braking due to less than zero grip, BUT THAT WAS NOT THE CASE this time.
It felt as if I was running on a prep track. The car was EFFIN' planted on residential asphalt.


This may mean nothing but its what I noticed

I can’t imagine what im doing incorrect. My rear left arm won’t allow more than 1 1/2 degrees camber. I’ve removed the screw to allow it to bottom out and still no change. All the other arms adjust fine except this side…

Your left rear reads 3 degrees camber. You might be reading your set up stands incorrectly, each hash mark is 1 degree.

No. Each mark is 1°. Easy to figure out: one end says 0° the other says 10°. Count the marks in between.
