Why are you running no shims under the suspension mounts?

I would say the car is roll oversteering ( it rolls so much that the tires loose contact patch and grip).If you dont want to put shims under the sus mounts stand up the rear shocks 1 hole.

We picked up our 416X today. They still had 10 of them on the shelf when we left the store.

Carbon parts prep is ongoing. The target is to take the new car to the track on Saturday. Looking forward to seeing how it performs on very high traction where the 416WE is flexing too much.

Just a couple of pics for today, I will post a bit more details someday when I have time.

These will show you the new bulks/motor mount etc.

How much is your price and what version are you going to stock between Japanese or overseas version?

Do the same with all the suspension blocks (both up and down and fore and aft) as well... a slight bend can be difficult to spot, but you'll feel it on track.

nice too see the forth pic showing the "wider" front bulkheads, can easily see the rear leg is closer to the suspension block from there

Shame I'll be waiting till the outdoor season to get mine, can't justify another new car this year, only had my WE built for a few months!

Rollbar mount seems a bit higher.
