See if this works. The quality is pretty crappy because of the file size limitiations for attaching to messages. Gime me you e-mail and I'll send you a copy in full quality in either pdf or jpg.

Where the heck is everyone getting their parts from??? No one by me carries the parts, Speedtech is out of stock on the Team Suzuki stuff and doesn't yet have the graphite parts listed... This is frustrating... Rainbow10's site is the biggest pain in the butt...

Ok guys...I am running the rayspeed conversion and the Rayspeed springs.What shock ends do I have to use in order to get the proper droop and the springs not sagging when the shock rebounds.When the shock rebounds it is too long in apperance that the spring becomes loose Between the spring perch and the threaded shock collar.What are the lengths require for front and rear shocks?

thanks!

I'm running my shocks at 64 and 66mm as per the setup sheet. Im using the short shock ends as I have the SS shock bodies but Matt uses the long shock ends with his SSS shock bodies.

racenut: I believe you also need to run the Rayspeed spring retainers. Are you using them?

Matt: Before I got the RS chassis, I tried that idea of a fully adjustable rear toe, because, I figured, it would be easy to do as the arms are the same all around the car. I bought the extra front suspension parts (knuckles, hub carriers and turnbuckles) and mounted the turnbuckles to a longer screw through the rear arm mount (the one up front imbetween the motor mount and gearbox). Anyways, the handling was horrible The hubcarrier, mounted backwards on the rear suspension gave the knuckle 4 degrees of downward angle (pro squat?) and the rear end was sliding everywhere.

Don't try this at home!!!!

James,I will have to pic matts heads because the stock shocks with the the settings he has on the setup sheet is not working.I know I am missing something!

Yup....the problem I am running into is with 5.5 droop in the front{this is measured under the actual end on the arm}the shock is so long at 64mm that the spring is not even close to being compressed between the perch and the threaded collar for ride height adjustment.And 2 I cant get the ride height under 6.5 mm.
I am doing something wrong.I am measuring something the wrong way.Is it droop?From manufacturer to manufacturer its measured differntly.That irritating.

hmm...i know on my car the spring floats a little bit also when the suspension is not compressed. As for the ride height, which hole are you using on the caster block? If that's in the right hole, try backing off the droop screws all the way and then set ride height. Then set droop after that. I know its gotta be something small that we are missing. If you can't figure it out then I'll probably be at Stockton this wed and sat.

I don't know what exactly is in stock but have you tried www.speedworldraceway.com ? You'll probably have to call them to see exactly what's in, but they carry all the spares and suzuki stuff

Which hole for mounting the castor block to the arm are you using? Use the lower one on the castor block if you aren't already. If it's still messed up bring it to me at stockton and I'll figure it out
