exactly!

well, its kinda like asphalt... its a painted on surface, called Skid-Not. indoors, probably 75x45 track size.

i think the shock has 2-hole, 30wt in it, and the silver (read: veeery soft) spring that cam with my Group C car. i never really got a good setup on the F103, but i am gonna try with this one.

Well-that super soft spring would explain the lack of off power steering. When you lift the chassis bends in the middle instead of transferring the weight to the front tires initially.I am aure you hate the car-send it to me asap and reduce your suffering!!

HAHAHAHH...er... uh... not yet, Ray!

it wasnt bad to drive, really, even like that. i only got to drive it for a few minutes in practice, before quals started. i saw the shock for it on Speedtech, so i may try a white spring and see where it goes from there.

i still have 2+ F103RS's laying around here somewhere... maybe i need to convert one of those, as well.

It also raced last year but blew off the engine after a day I believe. It is currently being prepared for the 2006 race. He just came from Monterey as well.

Ooops sorry to jack up this thread, back to topic.

Ey guys. just finished my kit. Seems that the box setup I have gives me a ride height of 6mm rear and less than 4mm front. Did I assemble it wrong? My old f103lm had more clearance in the front than this. The front suspension is the old style f1 so I cant compare to my f103lm. I attached the pic.
