The Mazda 6 causes the same problem, just put them on the front of the shock towers and switch them over side to side so they're as wide as normal but further forward. You're unlikely to find any that will have a wider offset, the cuda mounting points are already quite wide at the rear.

Ya thats where they are now and the body is mounted. Did a lot of shaving on the bumper with the dremel and made all nice with a cut out for the personal transponder. The only body before the Nemesis that Ive used on the R3 was the Cheveron Infinity which fit the cuda nicely Bumper and all. Cant wait to test the Nemesis on the track.

Back from racing again, Bit of a let down again...... thought i had the legs of them tonight but came second again

To be fair the guy that won was faster in a couple of sections than me again i really need to loosen my car up abit and gain more time in the S bends/sweepers although i am not entirely sure it's not just my style of driving that's holding me up

Anyway i moved another step closer on the set-up front with the 1way still plently easy to drive but now with a little more go !!

I'm still needing the rear to be looser or for the car to just not to scrub so much speed in the twisty bits

Anyway here a pic of daves bulkheads ready to be returned and looking very nice too !!!



Anyway happy over all just needing more speed / fluid driving style to get me right to the top !!

Good night guys
DAVE

I`m waiting on that still must not bug the man behind the chassis but I should have it ready for the last qualifier for the All Japan Sportsman Championship at the End of August

I also have a few more "Parts" to get color changed...

Half are done in Green...but I think that I might change that to Gold or Orange...still thinking

It`s very similar to a 2.0 Stratus with a bit more down force and a slight bit more turn in...but it`s very neutral

any reason why you use the II instead of the kit S ones? longer/shorter? also, do you know if tamiya ones fit because i have a full set of them from my other car?
thanks mate!

Tamiya ones are a bit small in Dia. ... You can use the ALEX S version ones they work just as well... but I like having a spring that it color coated..easy to make quick adjustments
