I think he means where does "86" come from. Is it a C.B. ten code? 10-86? I have no idea I guess, my brain is fried and full of snot

Yes I realise that believe it or not I realised what the problem was the first time it was dicussed a long while ago just didn't effect my car until I started using th inner shock mounting holes.
What I don't under stand is why 86= get rid of them it's a phrase I've never heard of before, certainly not used in the UK, so where the heck did it come from.

LOL, swap those numbers around amd I'm very close to that
I guess CB radio died out more in the UK after the 70's, not many people here drive gas guzzling trucks UK truckers tend to say what they mean any way none of this code stuff

so how far over the hill are you?

I have no idea where the heck it comes from, but it's a somewhat common term stateside.

I'll be goin to the track in a half hour or so, gonna try some new stuff today, hoping I get some good results.

One thing I noticed about our car is that the wheelbase is longer than other cars, that's good because it gives us a very smooth driving car, but I think that's part of the understeer problem we have. I'm going to grind on a couple things today and shorten the wheelbase, hopefully it will actually make the car a little more twitchy, which is how I like to drive it.
