You can set the droop actual, then measure with your droop gauges. Write that down and your ready for that setting for whenever you need to check it. Just double check with actual droop measurment each time to be sure. I always do that anyway to check the tweak of the car.

I also have been experimenting with this set-up with a 1.2mm rear sway bar and more front droop-3mm to 3.5mm. It actually seems to added mid-corner to on power steering with more droop. Car feels freer in the corners. I know its opposite of what is suppose to happen, but lap times did prove it. The lap times are approximatly the same between RP30's and Sorex 36R's. More testing and evaluation will be done in 2 weeks along with RP30's.

Yeah, when Donny made that change last weekend it was awesome to watch his car.

Donny, So Cal is on for Saturday (Reluctantly ) then the Babcock race in Hesperia the next week. Right? I've got a couple sets of tires coming in for Hesperia to work with.

Cool, its on. Especially for Hesperia. I want to go up Saturday and practice, then stay up there for the Babcock race.

Hey Donny....Did you stay with the 1.5mm bar in the back when you switched front bars?

No Socal racing for either of you unless it's with a practice car

gdcopbadcop....The optional swaybar kit from Schumacher has 2 bar sizes; Silver=1.2mm & Black=1.5mm (part #U2728)

Donny stayed with the 1.5mm in the front and went to the 1.2mm in the rear.

PW, I may just do that I've got an older stock chassis I may have to put on the BMI car. That stiffer chassis didn't work well at SoCal. Not enough flex.

Hey PW, I use the 1.5mm bar in the front. Except at SoCal with a one-way, then its a 1.7 in front and 1.2 in back. Still a little sketchy with a one-way, but I'm working on it. Made a lot of headway.

Oh, by the way about running my car at SoCal. I am setting up my spare car as I speak for there. My good car is my original MI2 from Febuary '04. Going on 15 month old car.
