I'll be doing the winter series at Don Valley, I'm doing mod but i'm gonna do stock aswell if i can get a spare place on the day.
In stock i'll probably be gearing my Monster between 7.6 and 8.
Are you getting the 15/40's at the track or somewhere abroad (HK Japan USA etc) at a reasonable price?

which caster block are you using? if 3 try going to the 6 degrees and soften the front shocks.

hope this helps.

Try bring the shock mounting in 1 hole also to get alittle more steering.

Do you guys recommend building the shocks in the regular mode or the adjustable piston mode? I figure that is where I will spend most of my night, building the shocks and getting them all nice and even....

Boy, talk about really wanting to play sick from work today

Well its your choice, its nice to have the external adjustmentss, but for me i have an extra set so i built one with adjustable and another non-adjustable. I only run at one track so i just keep the piston settings the same anyways.

But its nice to be able to change the piston settings externally, most kits, or no kits have that.

Rob, we get our 15-40's from the lhs (morley models) but newbold usually take looooads of to the onsite shop...aswell as wheels and inserts.

watch out tho, at the juniors the guy at the shop said he didnt have any of the new one piece controlled insert in stock and he doesn't know when he is getting them in..so don't rely just on him as he might not have any, and if he does they are gonna sell fast.

and about understeer, i have 2 pistons open front and rear, with 0 degrees toe on foams..and usually 1 out with rubbers and it turns in really well....i also run 2 degrees rear toe in apposed to std 3 degrees.

It looks like it has the long arms on it. But all you would need to do is get the short arms and some hinge pin mounts.

It is very light. Many of Josh Cyrul's setups require 45 gram weight in the center.

All you need is the short arms. They don't change any of the dimentions and you will only be out at most $40. They mount outside the bulkhead instead of inside.

Just the basics that you would normally do when purchasing a used car. Look to make sure all the parts are there and make sure that it is in the condition it is described.
