Here's the setup I ran at the Nats in the stock class. BTW, my production JRXS barely fit in the box they had there too.

We have .150" narrower pivots and .150" longer arms. The reason some of the cars barely fit is because of our new wider hexes, running a wide front hex gives more steering which is what everyone seemed to be wanting.

i was running associated wide hexes. i usually run their slightly wider cvd stub axles with the wide hexes but there's no freaking way it would've fit in the box then.

Mr Pookyt, I have a question that I just want to get straight in my thinking. I'm looking at Craigs setup sheet, as well as other ones and I just want to make sure I'm understanding this right as I'm reading them. He is running 2 shims under his pivot block and in the high position, so does this mean he is running the same shims under the rear pivot of the front of the car? If it was just under the front this would be considered a "kick" setting rather than a "roll center" setting, is this correct or am I inline for another smack. I just find it confussing when/or if the adjustment is being made at the same point but using 2 different places to indicate it. To me it would make more sense to have all three togeather on the sheet, if what I'm understanding is true. Thanks ahead of time for clearing this up for me. JP or Doug please feel free to jump in on this one as well.

Yup!! Yopu got it! He is running 2 .050 shims under the bar and under the small blocks. And yes, it might be different but he would indicate that on the sheet by showing "Anit-Dive" or "Kick" on the front.

On the rear arm to the front thing, I actually broke my BK rear arm Sunday and used my spare regular arm with a BK bracket. I have looked at doing this thing but man its really just too much work and I am too lazy!!! LMAO

Craig ran awesome at the Nats. If he would have had better luck in qualifying he would of destroyed everyone at the Nationals.

I'm going to give the arm thing a try, might involve a lot of blood letting, but I just gotta do it. I'll keep you posted.
