THEY ARE ALSO SELLING PMB STUFF TOO...CHOCO

Those pin mounts look like production parts....and I'll second what redsand said about the reactive caster mounts on the Evo2 Xray....they dramatically change the corner attitude of the car. How is the turn-in and on-throttle steering on the 710 with the default setup?

For me turn-in is good, on throttle marginal if front tyres smaller than rears. Its OK when equal and good when front is slightly larger than rears.

That's the result of plagiarising without reading the caption below what the original poster (Mike Myers) mentioned...

That's Mauro Marque's son's car (Mauricio, who is one of the local Brazillain racers there) that Michael Salven is working on. Mike Myers happens to stay at Mauro's house.

Hi,

If you want to lighten your car I would use the Alu screws made by Serpent.

I have them all over my car and they are stronger then the steel one's.

Bye, Thomas
