I still have not tried this; but, my thought is that the drive shafts will be straighter in relation to their inner and outer attachment points. In my mind, this should mean less friction for the front drive train.

Any more thoughts on this?

Anyone

Low roll centers: more roll, more traction
high roll centers: less roll, flatter and less traction

i usually always use the low roll centers. your manual tells you the details.

i have been trying a few things to make this work. i originally tryed flipping the front arms so they are backwards and i was going to create a new mount for the sway bar and shock mounts. i was doing this while running the arms full forward. i think it can be done but its alot of hassle.

Mike-You should see that your car is smoother with a bit less steering. I normally always run my car with the .060" further forward.

Default Black Belts

Guys, the new belt conversion should be back in Horizon stock by late next week.

Still running the CGM, have it pretty dialed at this point.

Todd - The race is on March 13-14. You should come on up if you have the time, I talked to MF today and he is coming for sure. I believe MF is staying in stockton so you could crash at the hotel.
