They are not doing to well at the moment, Hideo had a ok 3'rd run but diden't complete the first two timetrials.

Yutaka is best placed Cuda drivers after 3 timetrials placed at 26 .. but that is for his total points...

You can se the results her:

Hi guys,

Been out running my TrioX today (been too long ), and I was messing around with the setup. I was playing around trying to dial out the understeer, and I found that by standing up the front shocks more, I got more steering. Is this normal?????
Would this mean that if I drop the rear shcoks down, I would get more steering, b/c I still get abit of understeer which is hampering me abit.

Thanks for the help guys

Anyone

Hi Dan,

Your right about the dampers .. if you lay down the rear a little more you get more steering.
When do you need more steering ? Going in/out or mid corner og all the way around ?
