I think it must be the track layout that is causing me trouble. The car handles OK with the blues but it is a little squirrely in the sweepers.

The track has two 130 foot straights which end in medium tight sweepers and are joined by a large number of 180 degree tight corners. The light blues are great with 37sh all around in the infield, but I find it a little nervous thru the very high speed sweepers.

Used m1rr with light blue in moorebank yesterday, very promisig going thought 180, and as you said little nervous if I got the wrong line for the sweeper, will try stiff up the rear a bit to see what will do. still looking for the perfect setup for NSW title

Good to see your experience is the same as mine!!

I went to red front and gold rear with pretty good results, but then low speed suffered. This track is an annoying blend of low and high speed

After a couple of months driving the MTX-3 I am ready to have another crack at getting the mighty V one RR going this Easter break. I am going to have a go out using the Mugen rear end on it. AMG what spacers do you use on the rear end camber linkage?

Can someone tell what do I need to buy to convert my VIRR to the M1RR? I know it had been posted before but I can't seem to find it. Thanks

I am running 4mm right now. This is for Brendale. Around 3mm seems good for Meakin park.

I am still playing tho.

Have not raced yet. Found this from my very initial testing of this M1RR mod when Manticore and I were developing it

This mod actually works nicely on the concrete at Wynnum!! I did not think this would be the case.
