I have tried in vain to get a useful 'starting point' for the Evo. I mean to say, Collari's set=up will ONLY be used on that track..there is no other like it??
We have got the 966 working well here in the Uk on low to medium grip tracks, and know the car inside out.

Would somebody be good enough to post or e-mail me with a set-up or two to try.
Of course I want everything...easy to drive with fantastic grip levels...I don't want much.

I look forward to, and thank you for, any help that you can give.

Cheers
Mike

You might PM dameetz and see if he still has the set-up I gave him. He seemed to really like it.

Many thanks

Thanks.
The part number is FMW608. Carbon front upper mount plate.

Raising or lowering will change the roll centres and camber gain.

Thanks for that part no, so if I want to raise, does it mean adding more spacer, vice versa? And what will it give? More or less steering?

Hey guys,
I just ordered my M3 Evo (yesss!!! at last ...) expected to reach my door by the end of this week, and I am wondering ...
Are you running your M3 (Evo) with the Throttle/Brake servo in the standard or lay down position? Thinking of the pro's & con's, with the servo in the normal position it seems much easier to put all wiring neat & clean, since the receiver is next to it. But in the lay down position the servo weight might be moved a little downwards and further inwards to the center of the chassis, where you might want it, since the servo side is the heaviest side of the car. Are there any other pro's & con's? Do you guys have any advice? What are your experiences?

I built mine in laydown, and its actually looks clean, just run the wires across the front of the fuel tank. So far it handle very good, I can't compare it to upright mount though coz I ve been using laydown since its new.

I built mine standup. I just don't like the idea of my rec on the same side as my pipe.
