Alex-okay-I was confused by the post on mytsn of your set-up. IT said shims in frnt of rear arms was 4mm/3mm.

Either way thats still 2mm short of the 9mm total so I assumed you meant 7 up front and 2 behind......no bother. HOw many shims in front then-please!!

See ya in a couple weeks!!

No shims up front. The car can only be shimmed from the rear. 4mm + 3mm in front of the rear arm 2mm shim behind the rear arm. 9mm total 259mm wheelbase.

Hope this helps.

Later,

Ray
3mm in front of the arm On an other note, the blue just dosn't look right with the gold, you should try and get a hold of some T1R bulkheads. See you soon!

Actually a sway bar is ment to prevent execesive roll. Most carpet racing situations will call for a sway bar because you want your car to be "flatter" through the turns, this in terms will help your car maneuver quicker through the turn. To a point a sway bar will help you reduce the rection of the stering but like everithing the best way to lern it is to experience it.
