i tried the ltc-r but it made the car more unstable and worse to drive and the effect on steering was very little compared to the speed6. will try the front gear diff on the weekend (however, i tried the frontgear diff in 0-boost class and it didnt help; this is modified though now)

additive was tyretweak

what about the shock lenghts?

tried pink/silver after i drove silver silver for the most part. but it had only little if any more steering and caused the tires to overheat more quickly.

unfortunately we have to use the 30x tires.

i was running 62mm shock length and also using the Black bladder.
maybe u should try move your bodyshell 2mm to the front and move 2 mm wing to the front...it's did help to gv u alittle more steering

I really don't know which one it is, Hara said he used a yok paper shim so I was just trying to narrow it down.

Cheers,

Does anyone know the part # for the tear drop shape washer used for the wing mounts? Its blue with a countersunk top for use with a flat head screw. Look how the wing is mounted in this picture to see what I'm describing.

What is the difference using between steel universal shaft and the aluminium universal shaft? I know both are different in weight and material wise but are they any other differences between these two like performance wise, durability and reliability maybe? Just for the sake of curiousity.
I noticed that Ronald uses the aluminium rear and front uni shaft...

Thanks...
