The car will have much more steering with the Type A's than with Pit Meds, so that setup should work well if you turn down your dualrate. You might also try olive springs up front to tame it down a little or put a couple 0.3mm shims or even a black o-ring over the front shock shafts before you assemble them in the shock bodies to reduce droop slightly.

Speaking of which, is there a drivers stand? Or do we have to bring step ladders?

I think he means no washers on either side of the locker arm pillow ball.

Default Wing question

Which wing position should i use for a low grip carpet track? I've never tried the lower position before and I wonder if it could help adding more traction on the rear.

do you guys treat all 4 tires??? ( I think I will use some Corally)?
Thanks.

Gilles.
