Right?
Yeah, thats correct (sorry forgot to mention it earlier).
BTW as an aside, when setting droop (and the car in general for that matter) I always do it the same way, by checking the ride heights first (setting using shock collars), then droop, then any other adjustments (camber toe etc). It just makes sure that I always set up the car the same.

Marc Reinard is more deserving to have a car named after him. At a worlds level, Maezumi isn't up to scratch compared to where Marc or Surikarn is/was. Maezumi, while a talented driver is practically unknown in the US

What shock setup are you guys using with the LW suspension arms? I have the stock shocks, 2 hole pistons (didnt include 3 hole) and 40wt oil, and it feels like it's waaay too stiff, does that actually work on this car?

I've been running 3 hole pistons with 60wt oil recently. But I think I might drop down to 50, and generate a little more grip.
Originally I went with 2 hole pistons and 50wt oil, and thta feels pretty similar.
I'm not sure thats what you want to hear though....

It if history provides use any direction I would say this car will be produced, not a pre-order. (414 Worlds, Suri. EVO limited etc.)

Race success = new chassis
