-1.3mm of uptravel (chassis to floor)
-and I went added a 1mm ship to the inner ball cup of the camber link to flatten all the links out.

Right n ow I am on my way to a differnt track and tomorrow I will try:
-35 wt oil
-2* of rear tow
-and some different droop settings

I will let you guys know the outcome and how the car was if anybody has any suggestions or things they have tried post them so we can get the car perfected....After today I found that the S400 is durable and handles very well grad I got one of these cars it has huge patential!!!!!

Tested mine today, also...I used the box set up w/ 30WT oil all around, and used shocks #4 hole in rear, and #3 up front. The car was great! Faster and easier to drive than my Mi3(it took me a few track days to finally get a good set up for the Mi3)...the car was vey stable and was quik in and out of corners...not bad at all for the first time out w/ the car...

He guys!
The inner ratio of the S400 is 2,1875....
I've tested some for Vegas and foam and right now I am using
30wt Serpent oil, with the new Serpent orange springs rear and
blue fronts...

Also I have changed the rear toe in to one degree, which was faster
on foams, as well I raised the rear roll centre by 1mm.

I used the hardest rollbar at front, rear without rollbar.
Car feels cool!
Greetz,
Markus

Do any of you know anything about the release of the Carpet edition? I am going to be racing here in Montreal Canada and there is nothing here yet. I did se they stated there was going to be a Carpet Model with a thicker chassis and different springs. I am also thinking a front diff would be in order.

Any Ideas??
Thanks
Sean
