Yep, I hear Matt set fast lap so far in practice. I guess it doesn't hurt that it is his home track.

Ben
when you say to put '.100" shim under high roll center' does this apply for the front of the wishbones retainer to, and does the same apply for the rear wish bones .40" front and back or your going to have an almighty amount of antidive on the front and back ?? hope this makes sense mate

Just from what I can gather on your set-ups and postings, I'm guessing you tend to be a VERY aggresive driver Right or wrong? Just curious hommie.

Brant
lol, sorry, I dont have a cordless dremel...

I guess I dont realize it, but I have been told I'm pretty aggressive, I guess I weave through traffic a little fast at SoCal, it's pretty funny to hear people joking about it when I dont even realize im doing it. But if I bump you in racing, I'll wait until you get started back up and pass before I go again.

Luckily I kinda figured out a setup that works for me on my very last practice run. We'll see how it goes this weekend as I get more used to it.

With the front pivot blocks in the high position, add .100" shim under both blocks front and back - wishbones remain parallel with the chassis.

For the rear, and pivot blocks in the low position, add .040" to both sets of blocks, this is about half way between full low and full high roll center. Again the wishbones remain parallel to the chassis - no anti squat etc.

Hope this helps..

I'll get some up, took em before I ran the car, just didnt want to be the first person to surface the clear pictures of the new stuff, lol. Check out rc50.com, he was getting some closeups of our cars.

Edit: oops, forgot I'm on Numan's computer... its Randy.
