Yeah I basically wanted to see if the Ritchie engine hype was true. Seeing is believeing and all Nope Kaliboy is not a friend as such he just advertised it on the for sale forum on this MB!!! It was second hand, but had about 4 tanks thru it. I know just about every engine on eBay has 4 tanks thru them, but I pulled this one down and it had only done a very small amount of work.

Interesting..... I am sorry about the name thing..

Question.. How do you make the RR to run oval? That is so pro!. I mean... I have trouble making it drive in an oval.. My head hands keep telling me to make turns through S-section and go through with the technical section... I gotta learn. Where is this Colma track located? I must learn from the pro.

I am just teasing all of ya here... Peace.

I'm the buddy of AMG running the Fantom springs.

Front:-- green front tyre... 40
Rear:-- red front tyre 37

I was running V-one R gold front and black rear.

Let me tell you I dont quite know why the harder springs are working better..... but they are!

Only changed them over before the last race night... improvement very noticeable!!!!!!

see for your self....

Before spring change.....

20 laps in 5:08:91

Average lap..... 15:44

Best lap..... 14:05

After spring change......

22 laps in 5:12:08

Average lap..... 14:18

Best lap...... 13:34




2 more laps
Average lap dropped by 1.26sec
Best lap dropped by 0.7sec

I dont know a "rating" as such in terms of lbs/in or something. They all have some sort of rating tho. The second number is thickness in mm. As for the 1st number in the V1R springs I dunno.

Fantom
Dark Green Front - ?? x 2.0
Pale Green Front - ?? x 1.9
Yellow Front - ?? x 1.8
Red Front - ?? x 1.7

V1R
Gold Front - 25 x 1.7
Gold Rear - 35 x 1.6
Black Front - 30 x 1.7
Black Rear - 40 x 1.6
Silver Front - 35 x 1.7
Silver Rear - 45 x 1.6
