Hi guys

What effect on handling should I get when I add shims to raise the rear upper wishbone? I have been running with 2.5mm but have not ever ventured into the effects of changing it.

Also, I am going to try the pfr18 body. I was going to mount at 20mm, is this ok?

Thanks!

You'll get more steering, it makes the rear of the car rotate more.

Which E ring are you loosing.... its all 7 mm e clips on the middle shaft.

it can be because all is too tight fit...

The W2 gives more initial steering, it makes the car more "twitchier" and therefore harder to drive. Try both of them to see what fits your driving style, cause everyone's is different
