Measuring the droop off the set up sheets at 9 from the hinge pin equals about 5 off the hudy blocks. IMO its easier to use the hudy blocks but everyone is different.

I alway use the hudy blocks too, but now i know what the 9mm mean on the setup sheet. I was going to say, they can't do 9mm on the hudy block

What roll center shims work well for low grip parking lots? 2mm all around or lower? Do u go up in thickness when bite comes up or is it the opposite

usually, you will need to use less shim for low grip track to get the car to roll.

3 deg of arm sweep in the front gave more mid-exit steering. I also ran 2 deg of rear toe in because the traction was very high, and it aided in straight line speed and overall corner speed in the center of the corner.

try 1mm under front and rear as a starting point, you don't need antsqu in the rear if you just got the car

As you guys should already know, Korey Harbke did excellent job at the paved nationals last weekend. The car was SUPER dialed and Korey drove it perfectly! I just wanted to give props to Korey for his excellent and strong runs.

Great job Korey!!
