I'd probably start out with around a 9.6 FDR or so.

As far as setup changes go you will probably need to go a little stiffer over-all... but at the same time you will need to retain steering in your car.

I've been running 10.5 over there and wanted to know what setup changes you make if any when you run open mod vs 10.5?

Thanks Steve, I'll try that this coming saturday morning and if the car is working well enough I might sign up and get initiated in mod. Don't worry I will stay out of the way....lol

Sorry for the multuple ???s but how do you try to retain steering with a stiffer setting?

Well, there is no one answer... it really depends on your car, setup, driving style... you're going to have to start tuning things like camber, caster, camberlinks, arm geometry and whatnot.

Sorry you're having trouble getting through over here!

The systems have just been released from engineering and approved for production... hopefully stuff should start rolling out relatively quickly!

Default Reedy Race FYI

Reedy Race FYI

I will be attending the Reedy Race but it will not be there in an Official Novak Capacity... so I will not have spares or anything with me to check the function/legality/condition of your Novak Products.

I reccomend that you bring any spares and extras you have with you to the race.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hey I am just installing my new Novak 7.5r (we run 12t/7.5 limit) and just curious as I am about to go start testing and working my gear ratio's where do you measure the temps to keep under the max as I can imagine the solder posts would get hotter than the can etc....

Any help greatly appreciated
