Polish them and you will not have any problems

Yes use the upper deck outer holes.. you will also notice that the car will not feel as lazy in the corners

No wounder .. this thread is very dead at the moment
But I can lighten things a little because I'v been doing some testing with stabilizers and it gave a much more "live" car with the same setup.
I diden't loose as much grip as I had feared but the car was very fast in the S-curves compared to my regular setup.. too bad outdoor season is just about over now .. but carpet season is starting in 1 week

ohh I used the 0.8-1.0mm both in front and rear.

No, I haven't even cut it yet

Had to much other to do in too little time (U know work) and I'm afraid to use it on our indoor track because it's hard on the body's

And just to make things perfect my speedo had a meltdown and now the shop where I got it from is not answering my mails and neither is the manufactor (if non of them gets back to me tommorow I tell you all who they are )

Don' t worry Dave - I'll bring the body to all race nights just to let people see it
