Matt Howard - Yesterday I have tried your Stockton Rayspeed setup that you posted some pages ago. It worked very well and I think it is a great base setup for carpet racing with rubber tires!
But I am wondering how you managed to use the long shock ends
on front. When I installed them ride height was bizarre. I just could not get less than 7mm ride height! Therefore I went with the short ones. Do you remember the shock length on front. Did you use RS or Yokomo retainers?

Thanks,
ingo

Thatsīs weird!! Long (Yokomo) shock ends+ rs retainers?
The RS retainers compress the sprigs even more, donīt they?
I have also tried them but i had way too much ride height with them.

The RS shock retainers should not compress the spring more than the stock plastic one. Maybe you have them installed upside down??

Hey Matt helped me with that problem also....what wholes are you using on the c-hubs?Bottom or top hinge pin holes? use the bottom holes if you are now using the top hole.I couldnt figure it out for awhile and Matt finally said to check it and sure enough it was the fix for my high ride height problem.If thats not the problem the what are your shock lengths?

I did just use the short shock ends on the front on my car, but didn't screw them all the way on. This gives me the option to run the upper hole in the caster block.

Thats an idea! But the actual carpet setup requires that you run in the bottom hole.Actually the setup is very close to Adachi's rayspeed asphalt setup also.Cant wait for the tub!
