Try the frewer racing Ford Falcon BA 200mm shell It handles great look at the picture probably the best touring car shell i have driven. ( I have tried the rest apart from the mazda 6 )
Frewer also make the Serpent Stratus if I'm not wrong.

The shell of yours has one heck of a rear wing!!!

Thats what makes it real stable on the low speed corners and the front lip spoiler gives great downforce in the high speed straights.

Feel a little binding is correct since the suspension shaft is fixed and those arms is the one that is moved. Just like on G4 (at least the one I know) but serpents one is much better. Placing a plastic spacer in between alu holder and A arms improve the movement I think it will become totally free upon usage. Just dont get the 3racing one as it is the worst binding ever meant!

Way to go TurtleMan ! Share your setup please !

What Uncle Crash told me was to loosen the mounting of the aluminum sway bar holder onto the front lower arm. Not too tight. Just enough.

Denso, you're right. The shell does look good. Nice shells.

2 mm? No, not me.

Saw some pics at SGRID of Bryan's car. Thought I posted it here.







One of the best "naked" pics of the 710.

Talking about ride height, I thought I heard Bryan mentioned that he ran 3.5 to 4 mm ride height. How is that possible? Even on 6 or 7 mm ride height on a pretty flat track, the chassis still bottoms out ! Or is chassis bottoming out not a problem? Hope Bryan is around to answer this if he came back with a 3 mm chassis (instead fo 4 mm) after the 1 hour main.

Anyway, I noticed that Bryan did something like what Pyramid / Goldfinger did on theirs with regards to adding balancing weight on the chassis.
