Thanks Dave. Please let us know the out come of your R&D on the long A arms with the PAL hubs. I tried that set up before though but I didn;t use the Pal upper link set, the car's roll center front and rear became low. The car was still drivable though but needed more precise driving but the car gained tons of exit steering. Too much for me.

KO, I run RBF's setup and it works great at our track, It won't even slide out in those downhill lefties that everyone has trouble at. If I had the H.P., I could walk away from the 2 drivers that are faster. I handle better, and I don't break easily like they do...coughcoughtc3coughcough. As far as carpet KO, I am close to a good setup as you witnessed at our last indoor race. I'll try and fine tune it and We'll get you set up...We ought to come up with something good. I hope you haven't visited our message board lately b/c they are bickering over what class, oval, which was hardly ran b/c of no turn outs, and other garbage...we USED to have a humble set of drivers but seems like we all want to fight...sad eh?
