Damo,

No i didn't see it but it is probably similar to the one we now use on the Fantom. When we started using it we found it made a signifigant difference to the handling.

how's yr rear wing mounted, using the foremost or rear most holes? try moving the rear wing forward by using the rear most set of mounting holes and you'll see some surprises.

If it is the new 2.1 dodgy body I have heard people say they have to much rear wing on there cars and have cut out those small holes that can be seen on the rear wing to allow some flow through the wing....

Simon didn't use blade type sway bar at the back, in fact he is using standard silver bar and silver shocks spring to rectify the traction roll that we had on NSW title. also he had done roll center mod on the rear bulk head which make the top arm angle as much as the MTX3.

Who manufactures this rear blade sway bar and is it avaible in the land of Oz. And does it work successfully. Has anybody tried it out?

silver springs? wouldnt they induse premature traction roll from their softness?

Unless they changed the colourings silver was softer than black.

This concept he learn it from Josh Cyrul at the world cup, as you might have read some post that has said almost any brand of car had some sort of traction roller at the world cup and Josh has tried full hard setting but it didn't work so he have gone to full soft.

You guys may not agree but at the end of the day if nothing work why not trying something different

So if you are having traction rolling and you go harder to stop it and it does not work then go full soft? Now that is something I would never think to try but this is great information!!! Thanks tl2111.

AMG

It does work for me when I race my NEO at Vic's title few years ago when they spray VHT at that time(engine is a lot slower then nowaday), also last year NSW title (no VHT). but this year NSW title (VHT'ed) me and Simon has tried so many different setup still have traction roll even with M1RR, conclusion is VHT will not allow the car slide at all that why you need a lot more body roll to take the G-force out. it sounds strange but it does elimitate traction roll in most corner.
