Off topic of T4, but what sites/blogs out there have pictures from some of these larger European races?

Got to love Americans and their conspiracy theories.
A pic of the winners car was just posted on the AME group.

Looks pretty std, apart from no screws in the layshaft area on the top deck.

Usually when they have pictures from pit tables it's of the cars with shells off, why would they not want to show their product off!
Here is a picture of Adrian Berntsens winning car from the DHI, from Facebook.

Default shock foams

question about the shock foams. what is the difference in feel of the car w/ or w/o the foams in the caps. i run 17.5 blinky and on carpet. i built the shocks like the manual stated and got the shocks to have 0-10% rebound. i have read that Paul suggested to build w/o the foams. is it because more traction w/o? thanks for any input.

If i remember right from what Alexander Hagberg told me it is for more consistency, more shaft travel, also softer rebound. Makes the car softer kinda.

But is that with or without the foams, you haven't said?

Default Bumper issue

I recommend doing the bumper mod on this car as I did not and it cost me a chassis plate! Worst part is the car was to be sold after the race I broke it in!

Check it out, he's running the Diggity Design brace! lol j/k

I understand that running without the layshaft screws will allow more flex in the chassis, would you do that for a car that is oversteering to help keep the rear planted?
