There should at least be a 19T class this weekend so hopefully I'll get a chance to play around with setups and such, yesterday was a "get to know the new car" day. I got some new parts in the mail and can't wait to try them out

Good job.

was that a thin shim under the rear of the car's 4 blocks or under the rear FRONT roll center blocks(2) of the car?

Thin shim under each rear block. All this past year I have not tried to run any anti-squat or pro-squat so I really don't know squat about it! LOL Hope this answers your question.

its goes pretty well but for some reson i can't run it with high front roll centres becase the frotn digs in badly even with up to 60lbs springs any thoughts?

Geoff

going back to the 35/30 springs
the ackerman location did work well ,so that`s staying
60w oil all round liked that also . you could clip the bot dot`s with out it taking air

roll barr ??? think i will go back to the thickest one
droop is as kit 3mm front/ 5mm rear
shock loc.camber loc.wheelbase are all kit aswell

first time out not bad still in the B though
