All in good fun, thanks again for the help

Got yet another question. As said before, I am trying to run your snowbirds setup, but i read that the track was wide open. THe track at my lhs is fairly tight, and they just installed brand new carpet. Im not good with setups, so is there something I should change b/c of the new carpet/tight layout?? I was thinking lighter springs for more traction since the carpet hasn't been broken in?? Thanks

Matthew

ps I hope youre still willing to help after all those statements scarred you for life

bballer-just start with that setup and see how it goes. If you need more steering just add a little more negative camber.

emoney-If you are running foam tires...its a front diff. Rubber tires....a oneway would probably be better.

Depends on how much droop you want to use. If your looking for 4-5mm of droop start with a 2mm spacer in the shock and then use the rod end to achieve the desired droop. If your looking for 2-3 mm of droop start with a 3-4 mm spacer and again use the rod end on the shock to achieve your desired droop.

bigl-I usually have a .050" spacer in my shock when running the low roll center in the front. That will give me a adjustment range of 3mm to 1mm. In the rear I will use .030" spacer when running a low roll center. If you are running a high roll center setup you will probably need to increase the spacing by .050" on the front and rear.

utracer-I know....

crayzmechmow-I sent you that setup yesterday...let me know how it works out for them.

Greg-OK.

Todd: So have you decided whether or not your going to come out to Atlanta in a few weeks for the TFB Challenge?

If so, look forward to having you at the track...
