yank that oneway, first off, they give too much steering with foams.

Try:
70 wt oil front, 60 rear
white springs front, purple rear
outer hole on shock towers (regular front tower)
outer holes on arms
camber links in most upper inner position
Droop on assoc gauge: 5 front, 6 rear
0 toe front, 2 toe rear

front diff a little tighter than rear
swaybars all around

plaid/purple tires

Howard, I changed to your setup and replaced my diffs and did a test run in a parking lot nearby. The car looked pretty good. I need to make some fine tune adjustments for the 19T I was running, but it looks real promising. Can't wait to try it out on a racetrack.

Thanks

How did everyone do today? I had an excellent race day. tqed and won in gas and electric. It was a small turnout at a track that is just getting up and going, but, none the less, still fun. Warpspeed Demon was super dialed in very loose conditions (old low traction asphault). I have a killer setup for loose conditions. Let me know if you want it posted.
