i just though


ever wonder why it was the TRF415 Mazumi ... and not the obivous TRF415 Surikarn...

maybe the decision that surikarn was going to move was made long ago?

If you have an on power push, try running some anti-squat in the rear...or limit your front arm hang a little more (you may be transfering to much weight to the rear).

These are just things I've done to get a little more on power steering, but could have different results for someone else.

use a taller spacer in the front of the rear blocks, so your rear hing pins slant down from front to rear.

about .5mm to 1mm difference is all you need.

i always thought anti-squat caused more grip in the rear on accel... could be wrong, tho. maybe thats why i cant tune my car for s#%@t!!!!
