curious about the formula front end. it looks like you adjust ride height by shimming the whole front end as a unit.

does this mean that a ride height adjustment means you must loosen and retighten fasteners that are threaded into GR/EP lower plate?

how does those threads hold up for some of us less delicate pit mechanics?

yes you loosen 6 8-32 screws and insert shims and then re-tighten. bruce make the shim so that you do not have to completely remove the screws. mine last about 1 year of racing before they start to get loose. but since, I have been helicoiling some of the parts so that I don't have to worry about it anymore. i helicoil the front end, body posts, and antenna mounts right of the bat.

On carpet.. widen it up as much as you can. The width can exceed 172 if rules, or lack there of allow so

Hay Guys I need some help . Recently at my local track the crc guys with the help of Max Kuenning have found a magical setup that has put them ahead by a few tenths a lap. If someone could give me a setup for 17.5 blinky that carries a ton of corner speed i would greatly appreciate it. I cant be having Mario Ficco Beating me on a regular basis lol.
Thanks
Ryan

Do u know what tires they are running? Is it magenta f/pink r? If so they are running a super twitch/evil setup -- but that should cause ficco to blow out . Can u post your current setup?
