I spent most the afternoon helping setup a T2! What a hater I am!

typically would you say you run a lower fdr than a t2?

I am running a 6.5 in stock and it seems to roll fine....what is the typical FDR for a monster and a CO27?

Yeah...that won't work. The setup can work without low blocks, but you need everything else to get the car to work. Try 33 lb fronts and 22 or 24 lb rears on your car. The 2.5 mm shimming is a big change. It puts the arms further fron the centerpoint of the chassis which makes the car react faster and turn-in harder. Pins are flat all around. With 26 lb fronts, you lose so much turn-in.

You should have only one thick shim on the very rear of the car.

Hey , are you running narrow hex's on the wheels to use 2.5mm of shimming as it looks to me that if i were to shim the wishbones out by that amount i'll be over 190mm total width
