Oh yeah all I can say is USE JOHN HAMMOND FUELS. This stuff is unbelievable.
AMG

I found the same standard rear end works better in changing directing. thats probably the reason why the JAPs has gone back to it when they run sedan body

did U have EVO car kit or the converion???

37F thats good news. no more traction roll.

The lack of rear downforce with the use of standard rear end makes the direction changes of the car better.

According to Jaco, they are made from special compound which gives you better turn in and steering. Ideal for small and tight technical tracks. Only available for the front.

Just to share my recent setup in moorebank, which have my first 16 laps in qualify and finished 85laps in 1/2 hour final, car feels good except not enough punch with 24T conversion and the lap times is actually similar compare to without the conversion, but it's very smooth to drive the car, it can roll in and out the corner. have to run very small tyre to avoid traction roll.

more testing still to come before going to NATS.

Here is my setup if anyone interested

front
one way
droops -1
toe -1
castor 1mm in front
spring light blue
oils 50wt
swaybar 90 degree
tyres GRP 45sh 56mm size
ride height 4mm on above tyre size

rear
droops +5
toe +1.5
spring gold
oils 60wt
swaybar black (shortened)
LSD w 8000wt
tyres ATS 42sh 58.5mm
ride height 4.5mm on above tyre size

AMGRacer I must also say that John Hammond Fuels are the best I used, prior to his fuel I used Jungle Jooze it was also of high quality but also of an extremely high price. So you think that the touring car rear end is better, that's interesting I have been told that buy Mr Silvers as well. I suppose I should try it out hey.
