You don't need that much steering Harsh. You're not driving an X-Ray! They put that much in to get their car to steer when their chassis twists up like a pretzel. (That was a *JOKE* for all of you X-Ray "humor challenged" folks.) LMAO!

P.S. Rumor has it that you have never had an "Extra Long One" but I asked dal to stop telling me these things about you!

Yes, I will be there Sunday also. The long brackets help keep the car flat in the corner. It helps with corner speed.

Please don't go all "Brokeback" on me....OK?

The part is a "Specialized RC" part, not a Corally part. The part number is SRC79248. You can order direct or see if Billy can get it for you.

This is the main reason why it is used on carpet/foam because the car will stay more composed in the corner and carry more speed when the car isn't laterally jerked into the corner like a high roll center would produce. You do get more traction because of the increased magnitude of the roll, but it doesn't scrub speed because of the nature of the roll. If you have any more questions I can explain it in even deeper vehicle dynamics terms, but I think that covered it.

One other thing about roll centers: A high roll center will roll less, but quicker. This is understood. However, soon after the car reaches it's max roll point, it overloads the tire and creates less traction. You can test this by running a more angled (lower holes for camber link on tower) camber link versus a parallel one in the front. The angled link will turn-in harder, but will not have as much steering in the middle and exit of the corner. The parallel link is the opposite.
Thanks Brian, I think I understand a little more. I also didn't realize raises the roll center in the front(Angled link) would give me more intial turn in. I will have to try that, as I'm having problems in that area and I'm running parallel currently in the front.

Just keep in mind that it will take away some exit steering.

I have the same problem I bet everyone else does as well. I just turned my steering down the car had plenty of steering. Wed I moved my shock to the middle hole and that setup was really good.

Are the long brackets just for carpet/ foam, or should I get them for my asphalt/ rubber setup?

I would probably stick with the std extensions for asphalt. It just generates more rear traction and is a little easier to drive in my opinion.

Hey Jeff Dayger, what kind of oil are you using in your shocks? I think Cuffs said he uses Trinity.

I ran my front shocks in the middle on the arm, and third hole in on the tower at the Birds. I just went up 10wt on oil and to 36lb springs in the front. You just have to make up for the softer feel of moving the shocks inward.

I also shaved off any foam that was hanging over the inside of the wheels. I did this front and rear and perhaps even grind the wheel in another 1mm. You won't feel it but it helps with the clearance for sure.
