The guys in Okie City run on concrete with rubber I believe. I think it used to by Skidmore's home track. At least one RDX guy in this thread runs there.

well, i run at a track in Tulsa, and it was indoor concrete, sprayed with VHT. recently switched to a coating called Skid Not, kinda like asphalt. my oneway setup before the switch was:

1.3 pistons front and rear
50wt front, 40 rear (i think)
20# front springs, 14# rear
front shocks were in 1 hole, rear all out
f camber links 2nd in on bottom, rear 3rd in on bottom row
1 degree camber all around
2 degree rear toe,
2 degree caster blocks
stock hingepin mounts, in the lowest position all around
5mm ride height, 2.5mm uptravel front, 3mm rear
i was using RP Tires, in 24R compound

most of this was from memory, cause we switched about a month ago. took a while to finally get it where i wanted it, but it was good... right after that, surface changed... figures!

Does anyone try the front sway bar on the car? It seems to be in the way of steering blocks. Any ideas apart from put an Xray bar up front.

I have ran the Sway-bar a few times and not had any problems hit anything.

Double check and make sure you have everything installed correctly!

The only problem I can see with it maybe hitting the steering knuckles but you should not have to have that much Dual Rate or EPA in the car.

I shimmed up the mounts on the arm. No problems with clearance after that.

you can run the rear bar and turn the mounts on the arm around and the bar will go over the dog bone and run in the front of it.

Default Wishbones ????

Anyway you can tell what lower suspension wishbones you have? I got a 2nd hand car with a few spares but not sure if they are the soft ,hard or X graphite ones.

X hard = 75% graphite
Hard = 50% graphite
Med = 20% graphite

I think there is a softer one, which is basically machined delrin. But I haven't seen that one for a while.

Is there a mark that says what they are or is it done by feel. Got an arms with no packet and can't tell if its med or hard.
