1.5 degrees camber all around
17# Front springs with 60wt oil
14.5# back springs with 40wt oil
5mm ride height all around
2mm up travel (also known as droop)
Front shock mounts: all the way in at top and bottom
Rear shock mount: 2nd to last hole out
Front camber mount: lower row, 2nd hole from the most inner position
Rear camber mount: lower row, 2nd hole from the most inner postion
Jaco Orange double pink in front
Jaco doulbe pink in rear

Roll center postions set as manual instructs.

Thanks,
Mike
Well..... here is what I would do.

Stiffer springs front and rear since your seem WAY too soft. Shorten the front and rear camber links one hole. Try the top row as well as shorter link. Move the front shocks to the outer most hole on the arm and 2nd hole out on the tower.

Jeff

I was staring at Dan Hartman's car yesterday and NOTHING! They sure are keeping this stuff under wraps. BTW. Dan TQ'ed the East Coast shootout and took 2nd after Cuffs spun him out for the pass. Jeff won by about a second. I guess the new Xray isn't as good as they seem to think it is. Dan is seriously a great guy. Congratulations to Corally for keeping such a top notch driver and man on the team.

Under wraps........ that is because no one in the US has the parts.

Dan's car was pretty dialed. Never met him before but what a nice kid. Great asset for Corally thats for sure. Hope to race with him, his brother and dad again soon.

Dan's a great sportsman. He had the chance to take the lead back from Jeff. But he would have had to do it the dirty way. He chose not to be like Jeff.

I guess I started this so let me add on. I talked to Cuffs during the day and he is a really nice guy, no doubt. He answered questions about the different handling characteristics between the cars and was very polite not to bash Corally. I'm not trying to start a "bash Jeff Cuffs" bandwagon. I just expected him to stop and let Dan continue after the hit. And yes these things do happen in racing, but it just seemed like a bad way to start your career with a new team. Best of luck to Dan in the future though. We definitely haven't seen the end of him.

While I was not there I have talked to at least half a dozen that were and ALL of them said that it was not a HACK....Dan blew a line (his words) and jeff stuck it in there and made the pass. Again I was not there and did not see it. Im sure Dan and Cuffs will be along after they recover to straighten it out....

But it does seem like a lot of haters on this thread all of a sudden after Cuffs switched teams....

Sportsmanship and fair play is dead nowadays!!!!!!!! Too bad many don't like a level playing field and don't like fair competition.

Yeah it does . Cuffs is a good friend of mine and while I wish he was still with us, I wish him good luck.
