Lol, Im actually glad you said something about that. At first I didn't know what the heck you were talking about... looked up my old setup sheet and thought it was an error. Checked out andrews setup sheet (he used my setup after round 3) and they were the same. My honest answer is we have some good team drivers around the country and I have a friend that gave me a starting setup to go with. I put it on the car and made one change the whole weekend because the car was that perfect. I felt like i was driving good but not enough to do what I did.

I recommend making changes all the time especially on asphalt. When you have limited practice like BTH, you make big changes and see what happens. Im pretty sure that I tried the angled link on carpet and didn't like it nearly as much.

I wouldn't use it unless your using the solaris tires. It may not work as intended.

That set up was very good last year. I ran it at Fall Brawl after BTH but with the "hill-billy" link up front and the car was much faster than the driver. Great set up for the T3 2010 outdoors. If I remember correctly, Andrew D. ran that same set up again at Fall Brawl with the long front link.

I did. I also ran it at asphalt nats I think too. I really liked the longer links on asphalt. At nats it was pushing, but there was a lot more grip there so it is to be expected. All three races were on Solaris Hards.

Once again you are correct Chris. If I had known all it would take to get you chatting it up back on this thread was a new kit, I would have bought you one myself. Glad to have you back.
