I was thinking it would be better for the twisting force part on the chassis. I analised my old chassis (and the current one that I'm using) and I found that the chassis bends directly under the engine. I guess the aluminum X bar radio support plus the one piece engine mount would really help stiffen the rear part of the chassis.

Damn. I thought I could "escape" buying because it's not Serpent. Didn't know Serpent came out with one.

Thank you Master!

Slightly below the belt there D but I support your "inference".

Are you getting inconsistant droop readings? Just a thought. It may be due to your worned out chassis.

On mine, I found that since I run on clockwise tracks, the left side of the chassis gets eaten out faster than the right side. So left side can be like 3.5 mm while the right side is 4 mm thick.

Putting the droop gauge block support under this worned out part and taking same droop readings left and right would give you less droop on the left than on the right side of the arm even though you set the droop on the droop gauge to be "equal" left and right.

That's what happens if you keep insisting on running your car at 2mm ride height D!

Anyway, I think packetdreamer's car is relatively new though so there shouldn't be a problem.

Ah, thanks! I was exchanging emails with Herber on other things so I'll include this too. I already have the orange engine mount (not from Serpent but from East).

my settings are typically consistent. i just remembering reading that some measure from the arm. i looks like different camber settings would throw off your downstop settings, but i guess it's not to a noticable amount.

s&s is right, car is relatively new, i don't have a problem with chassis shaving... but at least now i know what to watch for
