MikeR,

No I missed that in all the BS with that other guys....Started skipping stuff....I am using a rear sway bar, the softest one, I had the front on when running outside, but took it off inside...

Yeah, I have done a bunch of things to correct for problems with the HB shock towers, including assembling the shock mounts and link attachments differently. I kept bending tierods and finally figured out why, when compressing at an angle the tierod was catching the end of the shock mount and thus something had to give and it was the tierod... I will try and take a picture to show what I mean...I think it actually works better too....

I have the HB towers as well and so had to cut off some of the thread of the shock cup to lower the spring perch as far as it could. A small mod but I liked that the shock towers are half the weight of the plastic ones and lower the cg of the shocks as well as the car. Not for everyones tastes though I know.

Hey! My special ed. friend is back to look me up- 'sup BlaznAnus? Thanks for taking the time to step away from the cash register at the hobby shop and check with me. As you know there are more than 12 racers here in SoCal so I race at more than the local joints so if I happen to race at the local tracks and you're there than sweet. If I'm not there then I'm sure the 2 local national champs that live in SD and apparently don't exist will be there (these are some pretty class guys who let their driving do all their talking BTW). All kiddin' aside if you're there I'll come over, shake your hand and help you unload your Ford Festiva and when the racin's over I'll help sweep xxxs parts off the track
