If you think the freeness is too much then you can compensate by a small chassis change in roll center blocks or camber links. Personally, I prefer to have too much and then tune it out than to get into a circumstance where I need more but cannot get it. Hope this makes sense!

I was thinking it was around 6:00 or 7:00. Sometime after registration is over. We may need a roll call here to see when everybody will be arriving.

Stand up the rear shocks to the outside hole and try it. If its better but not as consistant as you like then lean the shocks back in 1 hole and move the camber link to the #5 hole. Better but still a bit loose then raise the link to the #2 hole. If your track is very loose or the above changes are still not enough then return to the original positions on the shock and camber link but add the thin shim under the suspension blocks to raise the roll center. Try it again and repeat the first changes to fine tune it. Good Luck

I'm running a very similiar set-up as Malc and the car is very easy to drive and feels planted........ If you want the rear more planted, use a 10.5lb. spring in the rear............ Other than that, my set-up is very similiar.

Enjoy and let us know how it feels.

Yea the car feels planted as Kwikvdub says, and strangley enough I went to 10.5 springs as the track we was at the weekend was a little more bumpy than other tracks I had been going to. I also stood the rear shocks ringht up but made the car bog down on the rear. A mate of mine ran the same set-up but instead of going with a softer spring went to 30 weight oil in the rear which seemed to work better, he also had bump steer as per the manual (apparentley) when building the car you have that option, .....missed that one, but his car was far more quicker through the chicanes. but he is only 20 and me well ............
