Yup, parking lot racing...well, its a dedicated track, but conditions are so bad, that'd it'd pretty much be an OOOLLLLDDD cracked, rutty, pebbly, parking lot that you'd find in an abandoned lot.
Yes, with the droop screws. First make sure all your shocks are the same length.( I forgot to tell you that) Set your ride height,then you can set your droop. So, for instance= ride height is 5mm all around. Lift the front up with a small wrech in the center very slow. You want your tires to lift off the surface at the same time. Adjust the droop screws until they do. Use your ride height gauge one more time to set droop like so= Droop screws are your limiters for travel. So slide the gauge under the front of the car. Lift up again very slowly and make the tires lift at 7mm on your ride hieght guage. But, your tires should lift off the board evenly. Then repeat in the rear. Hope I didn't confuse you.

Dont want to be a bother but, when you say the longest camber link possible, does that mean:

Front camber link from C hub to the inner most hole on the mount?
Rear camber link from the outer hub hole to the inner most hole on the mount?

Stock spacers on the inner mounts too? 3mm front/ 2.5 rear.

Still race mine in the "mod" class in the club...finished 2nd today with a 3-season old set of HPI Pirelli tires and with an $18 17-turn Method R...

Just curious, what's the effect of increasing the rebound on the shocks (putting o-rings on the bladder)? I run 40-weight oil and 2-hole piston...

Upper inner link. Front and rear. Your camber links should be flat on the car.

You coming to the regional at SIR? If so what class. I know that at least 5 TB02's will be running GT3. I'm running the 05 cause it's smoother on power, but Jeff is maddeningly fast with his 02 and he only just started testing it.
