Teemu's car is remarkably stock. We have been testing a lot and we keep going back to our consistent know setups. There are a few minor setting changes that when put together result in some really positive results. We have to keep these quiet for a few more days....I am sure you understand

hey guys when u set your droop do u believe the gauge or your eyes?
cause i set one sides droop using a ride height gauge then set the other so the tires lift of together and i have a droop gauge and ive found that my eyes tell me their equal but gauge is about .5mm difference side to side which should i believe?
lol before you ask im 17 lol my eyes aint shot yet but i cant say much for the brain
cheers, Josh

Use a droop gauge to make sure that both sides are equal. Then when you lift the car, if both tires don't come off at the same time, your chassis or suspension or both are tweaked. Loosen and tighten all the screws on the chassis and make sure to start all your shock preload collars are spaced equal. If you're still getting one side lifting first, check and make sure there's nothing binding and that all your shocks are equal length. If all of this is correct, you'll need to adjust the preload collars to flatten it out. You need to tighten the opposite shock from the one that's lifting off first. i.e. if you're lifting the back of the car and the right rear lifts off first, add a little preload to the left front and take the same amount out of the right front. This should keep the overall ride height about the same.

Hmm, what colour rear roll bar is that on Teemu's, looks like a new 'bronze'

What ball ends are those, RW?

I may be wrong, but I believe Teemu has made his own swaybars in the past.

The ball cups are RPM.

Just going to throw out another possibility on the swaybars....

Could be from Yokomo as they do produce a bronze colored sway bar for their line of cars.

I have used them in the past and they work quit well. In fact they were all that I used for a time

Later
