I was engine tuning the car for someone because nobody else could get it to run . Took it out for several laps. Wow lots of turn in. Hmmm kinda skiddish on the straight. Well I'm going pretty fast. Bring the car in to take a real look at the suspension. OMG ~4 degree front toe out. lol

i am sure that the 4 degree toe out is not by intention. the stock turn buckle and ball cap dont work really well. threads easily skip and make the front toe inconsistent.

I know the toe out wasn't intentional. My friend said he Hudy'd it with his eyeballs when he was sleeping early in the morning. lol

I didn't like the way the car drove with the solid rear either. I eventually settled on 50,000 in the rear running the the one-way front, and 10,000 rear/50,000 front for the smaller, tight tracks.

the higher diff oil WT you use the bigger change you are drifting your car into corners unless you run it on a very high traction surface.

I have been using the solid rear and oneway for a while now. Turn in was a problem at first but I settled on TRC purple rear tires and 40 durometer ellegies mounted on my own rims on the front. as soon as I went to the ellegi front tires the steering got killer even on a small track.
front 198 MM
Rear 199.5MM
TRC purple rear 26 mm/w2 mm wheel spacer
Ellegi C40N on TRC front rims 26 mm /w2 mm wheel spacer(all ellegi 40's are the same)
TC3 purple front springs and a sway bar flat
TC3 gold rear springs rear and sway bar rear
front ride camber 1 degree
rear ride camber 1.2 degree
rear toe 2.0 to 2.5 per side
front toe out 1 degree per side
Centax with 17/21 on the pinions clutch very loose,lots of off corner snap
47/43 spurs
1mm or 3% overdrive on the tires
Alpha 156 body with all the wing I can get away with.
ride height 4 mm with the upstops set at 2 mm above ride height
Using the upstops will drastically change the car. downstops .5 MM before the car bottoms. on 61.5 MM tires front 60.5 MM rear
I'm not running the overdrive pulley. I'm cutting the rears slightly smaller at the moment.
RTU for power with a Novarossi 601 pipe on 35%. Header is the small one with 1/4 in cut off it.

On the Hudy tools I heard a guy say he rubbed his wifes red lipstick across the lines on the plastic and then rubbed it into the grooves. I tried it it works. the lines are easy to see now.

Anthony, the last couple of months I've been busy as a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest!!!! I spent a couple of days in DC right after the attack and a couple in NY helping out. Once things settled down a litte, then they started bombarding all the Urban Search & Rescue teams with terrorisism training. I can't remember the last time I've had a full 24hrs to myself!! Been able to catch a few local races, but's that about it.

I've been watching you guys, but haven't had the time to try (and post results) of some of the things posted. Keep things quite on your side of the globe, I might need a place to stay when the shit hits the fan.

Later
