When I first built my kit and I went to put in the droop screws, my integy wrenches striped them so I have no droop at the moment. (haven't had time to go to shop to get them yet but am going to put them in before race weekend) but even though it had no droop, with the stock setup of 20 wt oil all around with 17 lb springs all around, the car felt really hooked, the back in would not get loose even if i tried really! All I did was change the wt and springs, now I just got done with some more testing, nothing has changed just that I put 35 wt all around 17 lb springs in front and 14.5 lb srpings in rear, now rear is really loose and will break very easily and lose it. I know droop has a big part in why its happening, but why is it so much worst just by the oil and spring changes? Both test runs where in same place same asphalt, only other difference is the first time with stock setup I had my older CS27GL's in it, and this time I put my brand new ones on... And man was the back loose. Any suggestions besides droop?

Rob wanted to get the bulkheads nickel plated so they did not tarnish. Should go out shortly as he was dropping them off today. When do you need it by?

Actually I just talked to Rob and he shipped out your order today with the sample nickel plated one. You will have it by Friday. Topdeck is in there as well.

I just bought me a corally. Moving from a tc4 to a corally is like moving from a honda to a ferrari. I Love It! Any suggestions on what I should do to make the car a little more stronger? I'm having problems with the hubs.

Pace,

The new upright is for when using lots of toe-in so that the car isn't too wide.

Netdevil,

Get yourself the SRC Kydex/hard foam bumper package, part # SRC1005.

highwayman,

This controls the rate at which each end of the car transfers weight side to side and front to back. The thicker oil up front keeps the car smoother (slower left to right transition, and slower transfer to the front so it doesn't load up) and slows the transfer to the rear under acceleration to free up the rear end of the car.

Default Q's for Mr. Jeff Brown

Hi Jeff, I just wanted to ask what front drive did you use for your setup posted on the Corally Site, in the Aspahlt Rubber Tire Settings? Did you use One-way or Spool? Also, what particular Body Shell and Wing for that setup? I am trying make a baseline for my setup on our new indoor asphalt track. Thank you for your time.
