Then in the 3rd race i completely sheared a front driveshaft, just from driving. Oh well, time for some flat spot pins and stronger loctite. never had that issue on my T3.

I definatly need more time with this car as it wasnt driving perfectly yesterday. It needs more overally steering, and definatly needs more high speed steering. Anyone have any suggestions?

Here is the setup sheet

Here is what i was thinking of changing. Thoughts?

Hey Ant,

At the NSW State titles this weekend I was having LOTS of trouble with rear end grip on power. Ended up with a stiffer spring on rear, winder rear track, stiffer swaybar... and still stepped out at times, but was a lot better.

See you at the Nats!

Ant

I would just try going up in diff oil like 2000 filled. When I was testing diffs I felt that the lighter fuild let the car feel pushy on power when I went up in weight the car wanted to start to brake loose in the rear which gave me more on power steering.

Just my thought.

Thanks Drew

I received two last week, will try to make them fit somewhere this week or next week.
Wasn't really impressed with the quality though, but will see how long it lasts.

i've noticed you've lost the rear servo post...

is the servo held down with servo tape in addition to the front servo post?

any issues with this idea?
