Fatbastardovalguy-Unfortunately for you it isnt a sexual question. We all know you come to this site to try and pick up 11 and 12 year old newbies. So, with that in mind sorry to dissapoint you.

PW - what does the roll center kit come with? Is it just pivots blocks or does it have a chassis brace too?

Yeah i tried one a while back. Seemed to make the car very smooth, almost understeer into corners, but then had all the pull of a one way coming out.

Cool...thanks MattW...I'm going to try it this weekend...just wanted to know if there was anything scary I needed to watch out for...I'm expecting it to push a little, but it should rocket out of the corners...we'll see

Mark, your low speed steering will be very lazy and unresponsive. Remeber to take advantage of having brakes or else the solid front axle is useless. You may as well run the oneway if you aren't taking advantage of having brakes. Oh, and don't even waste your time trying to use the solid front axle on carpet.

Wow...BigDog is alive...was wondering what had happened to you. SPent all last night putting your asphalt/rubber setup on my car, and looking forward to running it with a 10 turn. Appreciate your comments on the solid axle...I had planned to take the forward roll out of my car and add a slight amount of drag brake for running 10 turn..Toastie ran it last week and he was way faster than I...I finished on the same lap, but his fastest lap was almost a second faster than me (BIG track)...this allows going into the corner a little hotter...

I'll give it a try, if dont like it I'll go back to the one way...

Response for solid front axle-Watch your front drive blades for wear. Make sure the outdrives are lined up the same each side. May move in an impact. Straighten them out for the next run. Set with low front roll center and maybe even front kick-up. Drag brake will help also. Must of your chassis tuning will be to increase off power steering.
