I took some of the top plate screws out and it got better. Video was pretty early before the pancars ran. Fastest lap for the night was 12.09. Quite happy with the car on track.

This is me driving my R1 Pro Spec in the rain in the 3rd qualif

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yKF...ature=youtu.be

The car was super quick and the car had a lot of grip and the car almost even grip rolled at the end of the straight.
It was my first time i'm driving in the rain with rain tires and it was a lot of fun.

not impressed with the new shocks so far.. are there any substitutes for stock diaphrams? or caps that might fit the larger diaphrams better? as it is now, once the shock is assembled you can press down on the cap and push it right through the diaphram, unseating it...

went back to my r1 shocks for now.

otherwise, the rsd chassis has been very consistant in touring stock. ive laid down several tqs and race wins with it without evne really messing with the setup. i took the r1 setup and built the r2 to match, with the rsd chassis. has MESSTONS of steering and is predictable. still chasing awsomatix level steering but not too far off really.

the new shocks are pretty, but kind of a bitch to work with honestly.

gonna drop stock for a few weeks and practice the rsd chassis in modified. im sure he has already gone to production but my preproduction one is awesome =)
