I honestly wouldnt have any clue what the price is going to be. If Steve doesn't know, then there's no way for him to pass that info on to me. We'll know in a couple weeks though

Did you sign up for the preorder to reserve one in the first batch?

They wont charge for payment until a price is confirmed, and the cars are in, or on their way. I am i2andman on AIM, but usually just use PM's because AIM freezes my cpu...

Hi guys..
I need some advice on what spring, shock oil and roll bar to start with if I run on low traction and bumpy asphalt tight track. By adding 1mm shim on the back of front arm, does it increase the car off power steering?

Thanks.

Check the alex USA site for setup sheets, use a SoCal no swaybar setup for a nice starting point.

This is my basic set up for bumpt tight tracks:

FRONT-

Shock oil: 20wt
Camber: -1 degree
Spring: stock (kit supplied) it's a 1.4 x 6.0
Shock position: all the way out
Droop: 3mm
Ride height: 7mm (our track is really bumpy)
Kick-up: No kick up
Camber link position: stock position
Toe-in / Toe-out: None
Caster: 5 degrees

REAR -

Shock oil: 20wt
Camber: -1 degree
Spring: stock (kit supplied) it's a 1.4 x 6.0
Shock position: 2nd hole from outermost position
Droop: 3mm
Ride height: 7mm (our track is really bumpy)
Anti-Squat: 1mm shim in the front pivot ball of the rear arm
Camber link position: stock position
Toe-in : 2.8 degrees

I am sure the track where I run on is bumpier than your track and this setup works for me alot. You can afford to have on=power steering with the R2 no matter how tight the track is. The car is really great and you can afford to be very aggressive with this setup. I don't use sway bars because they are useless (IMHO) in bumpy tracks.

Good luck!
