I'm looking at the setup sheet included with the kit and it says 0mm for the front .
Just do the kit set-up and take your time with it.
It'll be fine . . . . trust me, I'm from IBM! (with apologies to AMG)

Hi, Data:

I am from Marcosoft. I really like the EVO. I am doing something special in order to kick JRC. I am making the 1 piece 7MM Stringer pipe. It looks awesome, I will show you next time. How is the new pipe you are testing.

RDLken,

Master Ken:

jrc is a push over, you don't need anything special.

can you make it a two piece pipe ? i don't really like one piece pipes. the new pipe works fine, have been uisng it to kick jrc's behind (and that punk fish).

Hi, Data:

I will make a two piece for you. I just worry the overall lenght is too long. Also, it is better to use the Kawahara header.

Did you try new header with old pipe?

Thanks

Angry Clutch

I've just spent the last two hours trying to get my clutch to engage ! Still no success and it's got me pretty stumped... so much for driving it today !

I'll keep fiddling though...

I fiiiiiiiiinally got it going . Turns out that the 2mm-2.5mm adjuster nut distance was too much to engage the clutch at ANY RMPs !

page 20 and 21 show conflicting positions for the lower mounting. I guessed that some of the pic's may have been carried over from the RR manual, but never actually having an RR, I'm speculating. Anyway, I couldn't get the car down anywhere near a reasonable ride height, so I used the shorter ends, set the shafts to 12mm and used the upper holes on the arms - this works fine. There is also a chance of the roll bar touching the shocks if using the lower hole on the arm, on our car. I guess I should get the full rear sway bar set, eh?
Hear is something thats kind of weird I had this problem with the front I followed the directions to the T and when its all said and done I had around 8-9mm ride height in the front

I readjusted the shock collers to get the height down, now the front doesnt seem as stiff as it did before. I do go with heavier spring.

Default sorry to give late feedback AMG

Some more testing on the camber angles again.
AMGRacer I have to agree there on the point of camber change and wear on the tires. The settings I used for the RR are no use. I found that about 2.5 rear and 2 front camber settings is really nice on the slippery track out here at the moment.

I believe the kit specifies 59mm for the front and 63mm for the rear tires.

Assuming you used new 66 mm tires out of the box, there is an increase in 3.5 mm of ride height due to the 59 mm and 66 mm tire diameter delta. That probably explains why you're at 8 to 9 mm ride height.

Where about does the kit specifies for 59mm front and 63mm rear??
Does that mean if i inisisted on running fresh new fronts and rear.. i have to run with a ride height of 8 to 9 mm???

geezz....

The kit set-up on the sheet specifies tyres to be 64mm Rear and 60mm front. The ride height specified is 6.5mm Rear and 6mm Front, so that's in the ballbark.
You'll need to cut the new front tyres to get a 4mm split.
