Don't even mention that word. After the luxury of running when I wanted to at the AMCC track, now I have to go back to the Lawnmower infested track here in Nuremberg. But there again, with all the leaves on the circuit, it will hardly be useable until the spring

I don't know about the "serpent metal front belt mount". Are you referring to the aluminum mid bearing block? I have no idea that this will "solve" the belt rubbing issue. Mark? Onkel Sow? Picard? Sparsky?
D, you are correct that I refer to the aluminum mid bearing block...sorry if I have misled you.....

I would think so...

I think the current rear RC that you have now is slightly lower than stock. Some tracks prefer a lot of camber change while others not. The shorter rear upper arm (UTO or UBO) gives more camber change upon suspension compression. The stock rear RC and the currect RC that you're having now is the long rear arm version which gives less camber change.

Like I mentioned earlier, the RC would depend a lot also on your overall setup. I would look into the other stuff first before playing with the rear RC. If the rear is loose, I would tighten the front sway bar some more. Make it more stiff. Less rear droop. More rear camber.

speedy100, if you've a serious race to go to and you want to make sure you have the strongest parts on the get go, then by all means get the parts separately.

If you're casually playing and racing at club level, I suggest going with the stock parts first and when you break them, then you could replace them with parts that are with stronger plastics which is a running change that Serpent is doing.

But Onkel Sow can always escape winter when he steals time and come back to Malaysia. Sunshine 24/7 throughout the year.

Relocate geographically ! Down Unde is not a bad place to retire.
