I'd also like to request that you don't sell smoke81 a Phi, he's too hard to shake already. Thanks.
Do you think my phi will go by you so fast it'll break your rice cakes?

thanks for the help guys. I can't wait to get her back on the track. I like the way the car feels. It's very smooth and stable. I just need it to be a little more agressive on turn in and it's money. Even with the push, I was doing some pretty good laps. I wasn't running far behind the fast guys.

Marcos/Korey - i have one more question...on the Jeff Brown setup, it says rear uprights are 0 degrees and the coupler says 0 also with a 1mm coupler shim on the front coupler. Am I reading that right? That would appear to be 1 degree of rear toe-out

Uhhh.... pretty sure thats not right. I'm thinking he ran the 2 deg coupler clamps and running the 1mm shims in the front coupler to get 1 deg of total rear toe in. But... It's always a safe bet to start at about 2 deg fo total toe in, and go from there.

-Korey
that's what's so weird. His setup sheet says he has 2.5 degrees of toe but the setup makes no sense. He probably had the 2 degree coupler clamp and a shim on the rear coupler, not the front. Anyway, I'll stick with 2 for now. Our track has pretty good traction

Thanks, again
