Welcome Mr. McGoo. Is Mrs. McGoo going to join the fold as well?

If I knew you were looking for a new ride I would have let you taken my RDX for a drive when I was up there on the 19th.

I'm kind of in the same situation as Team McGoo by dusting off the RDX after a year to run the TSC in March. I'm set up basically stock with the short camber links, 4 degree caster, and not using the low blocks. Let me know what you think is a good spring weight start point after you run it Sunday.

If Ron & Wes could throw me some hints for this track, it would be very appreciated too.

Thanks - See you in Dallas next month.

Oh, and thank Andrew again for me for loaning me his Fantom motor. It wasn't over geared; I didn't have my radio endpoints and speedo configured right. Can't think of everything after a year hiatus.

Yeah, I was working on that the other day. I will put it into PDF today and post it on the website.

Hey Jeff, 0 degree caster blocks on your car? wouldn't that make the car seem a little darty? I run 6 on my asphalt car, with a spool and 1 degree rear toe in on the rear. I'm thinking of trying a sway bar in the front to see if I can get the front to stop sliding because of the spool, as I believe the front inside tire is lifting up too much. I have about 1 mm of droop in the front and 2 in the rear. I also have no couplers in the front (very narrow front). Let me know what you think about the sway bar. Thanks,

Kenny

we will see if Mrs. McGoo joins once i get it all built, she loves her FK05....we have it dialed for Mike's. but i think she wants to run a corally so she can wear one of the cool new corally retro jackets....

i won't be able to run this sunday....have Mavs tickets, but i should be practicing sometime this week so i will let you know, wes and ron have helped me out quite a bit, so i have a pretty good starting point i think....
