Harsh, everyone on the team has found (who have tried it) the Parma Alfa to be faster than the G6 on our car. Brian Lutz was running one at the Novak for practice and the first qualifier, I believe, and after he went to a Parma Alfa he went 2 tenths faster instantly.

ahhh sooo ...yea I just didn't like how it felt, probably cause it was to much for my feeble reaction times?? (happens once you qualify for the master class ) ...saooo in regards to my original question/comment, that is the only compelling reason to go with the lowered shock towers?

Harsh...the CG is lowered

It also tilts the shocks inward a bit. It is less than it would be if you moved it the shock in one hole, however. It gives a bit more mid-exit steering with a touch less turn-in.

Customworksking,

If you haven't done so already, try the lower position for the camber link on the rear tower like I have on my Novak race setup. I noticed it gave more on-power/exit steering.

Are you using the shortest steering links for the ackerman (inside on steering block, outside on bellcrank)? That will make the car smoother and also give more on-power steering.

Have to say the more I run this car the better it feels.

I also get to have fun winding people up on the T2 forum, man those guys make me chuckle...they keep on biting.

Poor Flexray guys... leave 'em be or they'll come over here and tease us about breaking arms.

So, how many of the Corally guys in the A at the Snowbirds were running the aluminum arms in front?

Maybe we should start calling the T2 the ME 2.
