Mr. Fok called me up this morning and I asked him to place deposit for the RR when stock comes in again and then have the shop to ship them back.
Fok calling everyone except me Moon

Sorry! Not old enough to remember No... seriously, anything you can think of that will alleviate it. (torque steer). Someone suggested preloading the right front and left rear. (essentially running with tweek.) Kinda makes sense.. but... BTW. the sways aren't out yet... Thanks..

very nice... note the larger stinger opening.. ya know this pipe is very similar to the meilki inline pipe, including the shorter manifold. Should be good.

Jonathan - Seen the same problem on a car running a big block RB .15, it had major torque steer! That person limited the droop on his car and also added heavier shock oil in the front and harder springs. This was at CASTLE (High bite track) on an FW-04. Moon is right about the droop on the front.

Jonathan - You have any servos to sell? Going to give my Mugen MTX-2 to my dad, but I don't want to spend a fortune on servos (he's not going to race but just kick it around). If you have anything somewhat better than a stock servo, and you want to sell them let me know!
