Jarred hooked us up last time, I'll place an order soon.

Second thought, we might want a race report before ordering a bunch - they might just suck for racing.

Wonder if going to almost 0 droop in the front would help, just because of how much the toe changes at full droop. Hitting a bump going into a corner could be bitting me. Car is neutral toe at rest, but at full droop has lots of toe out. Would be inline with what John was suggesting.

Oh yeah I sold Aaron's supastox today! Jeff Christensen got it, and is very stoked!

Lets keep this going guys, and i keep assuring everyone in the shop this class is not going away!!!! Biggest reason being there has not been one complaint about this class. Unlike the last classes we tried.

Could have munched it down off center of the backing plate and warped / bent it?

Need to get that guy replaced, the diff, as you know, is a good percentage of the game.

Besides, everyone is watching you!

How wicked can toe out be on an on road car? I adjusted a bit, and now have a touch of toe in, if I truly had toe out, that may have been the issue. My dad's car with the same springs and body pushed and he had the 47's and I have the 50's. That might do it, will see sunday.

Are you all showing up if you go to oshkosh?

I'm not really sure the GT12s will be welcome at Oshkosh... I have no plans to go and it hasn't been discussed in quite awhile.

Toe out will make the car more stable on the straights and normally give less turn in. Toe in will make it more twitchy and increase initial turn in. I'd compare his Ackermann and camber to your car's. Decreasing the front droop should limit the bump steer too.

No Oshberg for me either.
