Just curious, since that's a tuning option that's pretty unique to the awesomatix.

Personally I havent played with it yet, ive always set it to be 0 bump. Im at the point now where maybe ill play with it. I dont think you would want to get too crazy with how much change you have though, because then you would have to make sure you drive the car exactly the same every corner to get the same feeling from the toe every lap. I would suggest if someone isnt 100% confident in how everything else works setup wise you leave the rear bump toe static, there is plenty else to learn & change to get a dialed car

Anybody used progressive Rear Caster yet ??? Moving the rear wheel towards the rear when the suspension compresses will act like rear steering....

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but are the dampers put together by special equipment, so much as to not allow reassembly by us heathen? I for one would like to check things out...

I have taken apart an old shock to look inside to see how it works, but could not get back together right. I remember hearing or reading that the shocks are assembled by hand and built in a specific order.

I really do not recommend to open the shocks. With a bit of luck you will get it back together but in 99% there will be air inside after disassambling. The best is to send them back for maintance to Taiwan factory but I honestly run still some of my first shocks... And they have many flights, races and so on behind them :-P

I am really looking forward to Vegas. First time on US style carpet track! It will be interesting. I will use all the new parts so who want to check them, just came by :-)

Really looking forward to meet many new people!

See you
Freddy

This is interesting because it is the reverse of what is normally done here in the UK.
I will try going back to 3* from the current 2.5* but also trial the rear bump steer idea as explained by grippgoat .

Freddy - it should be great to meet you. I know you'll be ready and willing to turn some wrenches to get your car good. On the flight over try to pick Ronald's brain... That is unless he isn't attempting to steer you in the wrong direction. People only usually start doing that when they realize your a threat

Richard - I honestly think that rear toe and droop changes can usually take an average handling car and make it great. Hopefully you'll find similar things...
