I'm gonna paint both and give each a try anyway, but I just wanna know if anyone has done so yet with the shell.

Looks like Marc Reinhard was running the straight wing here

do you have a picture from the different wings?
I think it may be a straight and a curved one. Seems the Japanese drivers like this as I have seen this with different brands.
I think in compare to a straight wing a curved one will result in more steering as the outer parts of the wing left and rear is more towards the front.

Do you think Marc used the same straight wing as supplid with the Subaru body?
As I have no Subaru I cant say. But I know hes switching wings from time to time. In the beginning he used a Tamiya wing on his Mazda. Looked similar to me as the one on the Subaru.

this is what i think the main difference is.
The curved one (left) has much less of an angle on it, when compared ot the straight version (right). I expect that the straight one overall produces more downforce (and hence more stable), although I wouldn't be suprised for the curved one to be a better balanced shell..

Any thoughts
Ed

Hi V12,

Excellent report from the German Nationals!!!

Are you still thinking of keeping the EVO III?

greetings everyone,

I have slop in the aluminum rear hubs where the hinge pin goes thru. Has anyone figured a way of eliminating this slop?

I've been reading various posts about reducing/eliminating slop in the ball joint using CA. I was wonder if this has been tried on the rear hub hinge pin hole with success. However, I don't see this as a permanent solution as the CA would eventually wear away.

Any permanent solutions/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys. The report was work for about one day but I hope it was worth it.

Marc
I dont know. I think I will keep the EVO III as a car for racing in the wet when I have to. Also I will run the car one more time in two weeks when we have the finals from our regional series as this will be a dusty track from what I hear. Should be good enough for this. But this will be the last race outdoors.
For indoors I will run the 415 for sure.
Im really interested on your testdrive 415 vs Xray.

i saw you there quite a bit, but you were usually pretty busy chasing stuff around!
i was pulling for George tho. i thought he had it, till that last, uh, pass... his car looked great as well! congratulate him for me!!!

when i do it again, im gonna try to get more practice, i guess.... might help! it is tough to compete with the locals that can run the track every week... but those im sure they would run off and leave me no matter where we were! Orlando had a fantastic run for the 3rd main!

and i did run the 360 for a couple quals, but switched to an NSX later.... seemed a little more stable in the 180's.
