Did you notice hes running the high roll center mounts front and rear too on the hinge pins? Seems hes doing the opposite than we are! Maybe its the tire difference?

I think he's running high-roll anti-dive front and mid-roll rear, he seems to favor running those settings alot lately.

Looks like he's running less top deck support, the extra height pillars that sit above the steering posts aren't in.

This is a 48dp gearchart I made up.
The yellow boxes are gear ratio's I have actually tried.
Any combination that has a blank box cannot be achieved

I've been running the lower for ages as well, and loved it. But have just gone to the new bulkhead mounts with the longer arm mounts, and I'm going to be trying going back to the mid roll center's today.

I wish the new bulkhead clamps came in a kit with the open ball cups and evreything needed to convert to them. Or a least a list of exactly what is needed.

Oops, I stand corrected.

Strange that it has that extra brace yet the steering is set for low grip like I mentioned.

Maybe it is an alternative to the steering post inserts that is less likely to tweak?

Is it just me or is this most recent ETS layout identical to the layout they had at the last round on asphalt?

The stock set up does not use those posts correct? So it is weird that they aren't being used for carpet?

Parts of it are, but overall the carpet track this weekend seems more flowing than the asphalt track.

Are the kit shock setup the cats' meow, or should I invest in some aluminum ones?

I just recently switched to the aluminum shocks and I really like them. They have a greater volume of oil in them, so dampening seems to be more consistent and I felt there was more overall traction and stability. Even so, the plastic ones still work really well, just a little more work goes into building them is all.
