What kind of luck have you guys had with using the 2.0mm chassis and the 1.6mm top plate with flex through the corner?

I need some serious help

I for the life of me can not get the wheels to come off the board at the same time.

I have made sure the Droop is correct, shock lengths correct, there is no tweak at all. however when I put a wrench under the front and lift, I can't get them to come up at the exact same time, It's extremely frustrating. Can anyone shed some light on why this could be?

I have used the professional tweak station, but find its garbage, I can't see the point in adjusting the shock collars to get it level, as doesn't that just throw the ride height out?

I am a complete newbie when it comes to car setup, however am spending a lot of time on it to get it right.

I look forward to some advice.

Regards
Nathan

Are you having the same problem on the rear or just the front?

That's awesome!

I've been waiting for some coverage but can't find any.

Where are you finding this Fred?

The progressive 2.2-2.6 springs in the rear are strange. It's probably the most dramatic single change I've made to the car. Traction was a bit weird, so I'll need to test some more. The most noticeable thing was it made the nose of the car slide around a lot when I'd brake into the turns. I tend to point and shoot, especially when the car won't turn, so it wasn't a great option. We'll see how it goes when there's more grip/steering and I can smooth things out.

They do seem to improve grip mid-corner.

It looks like Groskamp has the fastest 5 min qualifier.
Lemieux is up there running well we will see how the race goes.
He has TQed a couple rounds like mentioned above.
It is nice to see the diversity of manufacturer's represented. I even saw Sakura and Team Magic represented

Best time 00:16.948 (2) (09.06.2012) Ataushi Hara 00:16.948 (2) Ataushi Hara
Practice 17 05:15.802 (09.06.2012) Federico Veronesi 17 05:15.802 Federico Veronesi
Qualification 18 05:12.241 (09.06.2012) Jilles Groskamp 18 05:12.241 Jilles Groskamp
Final - -
