I would think those pistons would be run the opposite way with the 1.4's in the rear...?
Actually not. I am going to try the World's setup that Tebo ran and make adjustments from there. He ran the 3x1.4 in the front.

Got a question on the B4.2 setup......I'm using Maifield's setup. on the shocks they have a "Limiter" setting, he has "1" listed. What is the limiter? Is it the number of nylon spacers that goes on the shock shaft or the spring retainer? I have the medium spring retainer on it now. When I built the shocks I forgot to put in the nylon spacers, they said in the manual 3 in the front and 2 in the rear.

Help!

I am no AE expert, but most the time the limiters are internal to limit down travel (droop) which effects the car dramatically!

It's the nylon washers and they're 0.30" thick each. I would disassemble and put them in.

In the past the Saturday crowd has been much lighter after a "big" Friday night race. I would think 8-9 finish but it depends on crowd. I know a few that are out for tonight and planned to race Saturday. Hope that helps....

Yep and alternate off road and on road on Saturdays. Once the Friday series is done I will be back to Saturday racing. I just don't do well with getting home at 1 in the moanin!! Too old I guess.

BTW fantastic race last night at Hotshots. Keith did a great job of keeping the races running and on time. Thanks Keith.

Will the Freaky Friday series continue on the 15th or is it pushed up a weekend since Friday is now Off road night? Got the answer it will be on the 15th as scheduled.

Thanks,
Brian
